Who are you To be the one who left Who are you To join all the others Were you not able to handle my plight Or was I just not good enough? I've tormented my fair share of souls By some strange chance of fate My intentions are pure And good And my wishes are always the best I guess There have been occasional times That my judgment has been crossed And I've lashed out, innately But I want to take it a step further I want you to feel my pain I want you to feel the pain that I've felt Every Single Time Before My intentions are pure Until I've been pushed past sobriety You've abused me again to the point Past forgiveness You've hollowed my being You've made me feel numb To the point that callousness Becomes the norm My empathy dissipates, yet My intentions are pure Affinity recurs And I'm back in our home You've forgiven me And I wonder if I'm crazy Have I been gaslighted, Once again? Or have I been manipulative? Do you understand Where I've come from Or does that matter at all? Am I your stooge Or are you mine? My intentions are pure And my intentions Are to protect my heart If we can't tell Who the real bad guy is, Are we both deranged? It doesn't matter who's right Or who's wrong I just want to know,
Is the pain I feel so real, Enough for you to see?
