Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine.


I have been guided in the right direction all my life,
But somehow I made the wrong turn towards you.
Since then all there has been is a drawn out strife,
And you still don’t have the slightest clue.

 

I loved you, I hated you, through all this, I came through.
Yet you still stand there with a smile on your face
Making sure to give me plenty of space
While everything around us is askew.

 

Each time I fall
Harder, and harder, and harder
You broke through my
Armor, my armor, my armor
And there is no
Ardor, no ardor, no ardor

 

What’s a second chance for if all you do
Is use it as a get out of jail free card?
Why can’t I just tell you we’re through?
I am both physically and mentally scarred.

 

I loved you, I hated you, through all this, I came through.
Yet you still stand there with a smile on your face
Making sure to give me plenty of space
While everything around us is askew.

 

Each time I fall
Harder, and harder, and harder
You broke through my
Armor, my armor, my armor
And there is no
Ardor, no ardor, no ardor

 

You painted the skies with a candy green
And I filled the clouds with silver streaks.
I wish your actions had been foreseen
Your mouth is where your havoc leaks.

 

I loved you, I hated you, through all this, I came through
Yet you still stand there with a smile on your face
Making sure to give me plenty of space
While everything around us is askew.

 

Each time I fall
Harder, and harder, and harder
You broke through my
Armor, my armor, my armor
And there is no
Ardor, no ardor, no ardor

 

I’m walking the wire without you
And all of my fears have shriveled away
Now I bid you a meaningless adieu
As I laugh about your inevitable doomsday.
