Have you ever been betrayed? That shit's the worst hit of pain
When somebody you loved can't look you in the face
And have you ever had your heart torn out by somebody you thought was a friend
And now your trust is worn down or bought to an end
No pardons can mend it, when you're darkened within
Fuck your cause & effect, it's a hard fate to take and your reasons don't soften the sin
Your dogs can bark for you, but you gotta watch when you argue
Cause dogs will bite and snarl at you, just to remind you they're harmful
I feel awful, I'm a mental case, shattered to pieces and I've got a palm full
Past law school and beyond consol
Cause you've crossed the bar with me, farther than I've ever thought possible
My choice is now mandatory and not optional
Don't speak another sentence to me, ever mention me
I don't exist, convince yourself you invented me
You've committed the crime of the century
And just cause loyalty ain't a trait you possess, Don't think that I'll lessen the penalty.

Chorus:
I love you in a place where there's no space in time (And that's forever right?)
I love you for my life - you are a friend of mine (Only second to family)
I love you in a place where there's no space in time (Who really got your back)
I love you for my life - you are a friend of mine (How loyal are your friends, y'all?)


What's your name again? I know, I knew it 2 seconds ago
But, I don't recognize this 2nd face, though to the 1st it's identical
You were the type that I put on a pedestal. Your acts were commendable
But the bond of friendship isn't impenetrable
And inevitably the blunt force of ego proved lethal
To a good person forced to wallow in the shit of evil people
Fundamentally filled with avarice, a cheat from the soul
Spending their lives to make sure that you ain't achieving your goals
Unreasonable kings that want to see you jump through rings of fire
For their own amusement, holding nooses - hoping trees are higher
So abusive towards you that truce just doesn't seem required
Cause, why play the game? When you can make the other team retire
Strings are tirelessly pulled in your favor as you play the rumor creator,
Twisting words till they sound like statements you made up
With a big grin you soak it all in, as former friends
Go face to face with contradicting convictions
Plots are thickening, cause you pitched in. You feel important, now?
Must've been high as kite from snorting clouds
Sorta proud of yourself, and the way you hold ya ground
Distastefully wore the shroud, how's it feel to have puppets to order 'round
But I saw through you, even before I found
How you would say 'no, beef', give me dap, and hit me with a quarter-pound
Your loyalty's watered down, Bottled with a squirt cap
But When the drama popped off, where the fuck were you to plug the cork back.

Chorus:
I love you in a place where there's no space in time (And that's forever right?)
I love you for my life - you are a friend of mine (Only second to family)
I love you in a place where there's no space in time (Who really got your back)
I love you for my life - you are a friend of mine (How loyal are your friends, y'all?)


Men are as harsh, as women are vindictive
Picking apart minutiae, On some bitch shit, kids all in your business
Forget honesty, nowadays you'll be lucky find that quality
In a drama oddessy where cats never react responsibly
And I'm jostling with haters, hypocrites and hypochondriacs
Abolishing their dated ignorance and fighting copycats
and If I don't give my patience a rest
I'll prolly take my anger to death, complaining about some pain in my chest
Aged and distressed, thinking 'bout who just fucked me over - 20 years ago
Amazing how pricks can miss your skin, yet pierce your soul
But where's the line at? Like where does loyalty appear to fold
And what do you OWE someone and just WHAT do you feel your owed
But yo, you know when you've been done wrong, that numb calm,
A breech in the moral code's eternally portable
The moral of the story's old even if it's poorly told
Beware of cats that straddle fences like the chain-link rodeo.
