Let Them Be Lawliet

Let them be Lawliet
A glorified cop
A genius who can’t sit up

I’d rather be Beyond Birthday
A murderer who just wanted to help
A child grown up too fast
A man with a serious identity crisis

To have solved the mystery
To be caught between good and evil
Jam between two pieces of white bread

I would rather be a hidden romantic
Cut off from the rest of the world
Accused of being a FREAK

Than be loved by all
A rose in a tangle of nettles
Beautiful and admired and
Controlled

I’d rather be buried six feet deep
On my own terms
Than to be
Murdered by the love that smothers my genius

Fans of the series should really appreciate this one.  Too bad your original formatting couldn't translate to the website, but still very effective!
