We need to talk,
And yeah, it’s a break up line.
But the only reason I feel the need to separate from you
Is because you were never there in the first place,
See the irony?
And yeah, maybe I’m just bitter,
Because life is shit
And I’ve shovelled a lot of it,
And when they tell me I’m not the only one
That’s not really a consolation
Because why exactly were we the ones handed the shovels?
And while I’m asking questions
Whose shit is this anyway?
And why didn’t they clean up after themselves?
So yeah, maybe I’m just bitter
But when all you’ve got is lemons
It’s fucking hard to make sweet lemonade
Despite what they say.
So where have you been?
And be aware that you are facing a loosing battle
Because even if you rally the troops
It’s going to be too little too late
And we’ll all be standing here,
Tapping our feet and asking
What time do you call this?
And you better have a damn good reason
Because we’re about ready to pack your bags,
Send you on your way,
And don’t you dare look back.
You spouted endless love
And we drank it up
But in the end
You’re just an abusive asshole,
You’ve raped us
And beat us,
Made us this way
And then told us it’s our fault.
Well fuck you.
Because I’m tired of this shit.
And yeah, maybe that’s not my best response
But I don’t need a clever vocabulary
Or to invest in a dictionary
To know that you’ve fucked up
And that I’m done taking it up the ass.
You want to hear me talk?
Well then listen up you arrogant prick.
I’ll accept that we blew things out of proportion,
And oh yeah we’ve made our own mistakes
With no help from you,
But you’ve been gone for a while
And all those dominoes you set up?
Well someone knocked one over
And now there’s rubble everywhere,
And you don’t even have the decency
To help clean it up.
And I don’t want a fucking apology,
Though we all know you have a few to hand out,
I want you to get off your throne,
The one that we built hoping for better things,
And see exactly what your message has brought about.
I’m pissed off,
If you hadn’t noticed,
And the thing is
I’d already moved on from you,
Given up on you,
Called you a write off
And got on with my life.
And the world made so much more sense,
Once I’d stopped looking to you for answers.
So we’re done,
End of story,
Said goodbye and moved on.
But I’m not writing because of me
And don’t think that this is going to end happy
Because I’m fucking furious.
Did you know he was crying?
Would you have cared even if you did?
He actually asked if I thought you hated him
And I said no, because no one could hate him
And it was what he needed to hear,
I don’t have a clue what you think anymore.
He is a creature of love,
And it was your voice that taught him hate.
The scary thing is
He’s not the only one crying,
He’s not the only one hating his own desires
And wishing that he could be ‘better’.
And yeah, maybe they weren’t your words
But they were said in your name.
I don’t even want your help.
I don’t want you to set things right,
Because let’s face it,
Everything you touch
Turns to shit
And we’re all a little tired of shovelling.
No, I just wanted you to know.
I want you to own your mistakes,
See what you’ve done.
And then walk away.
Because after all,
That’s all you’ve ever done.
Maybe we let you down
But you’re punishing the children
For the parent’s crimes.
And we’ve had enough.
