Chain with a Missing Link

April 28, 2018

You came over and sat down next to me;
At first I was just trying to be polite;
But you will never bring me tranquility;
And I’d rather sleep alone at night.
I don’t need your lies and secrecy;
I don’t need yet another fight;
Not every war ends in victory;
Will I regret this in hindsight?

[chorus]
You cannot tell me what to think;
You cannot tell me what to do;
I won’t come running at your slightest wink;
I never needed you.
You try to get my attention and act distinct;
You always want me to pursue;
I’m a chain with a missing link;
I never wanted you.

I am not something that you own;
Not another of your possessions;
Listen to me and let it be known;
This is another of your misconceptions.
I prefer to walk this road alone;
Leave me alone with my reflections;
I will reflect back on my home;
I won’t follow your misdirections.

[chorus]

All of your plans are ill-conceived;
I won’t betray what hides beneath;
You lead me to believe;
That I’m a beast you must resheath.
You have a weapon you want to unleash;
You tell me I’m some kind of freak;
You lead me to believe;
That there is no one meant for me.

[chorus]
