I remember when it began
as just a small concession
A white lie here and there
a glance turns into a stare
For the first time in my life
I believed I was someone I
could never be

But it was just in fun
to test the waters out
I soon lost sight of what was
wrong and what was right
Found confidence in rhetoric
Where once I would shudder
just to think, now I
voraciously drank

When you see me laughing
at the sun, take me down
with a merciful shot

Like a lame dog whining
in the dust, take me down
with a merciful shot

I am swollen and fat
tender with bloated pride
I am an open wound
Tumbling like a rock
The bridge is burned
too far to go back
When left alone
my spine tends to crack

When you see me laughing
at the sun, take me down
with a merciful shot

Like a lame dog whining
in the dust, take me down
with a merciful shot

When you see me laughing
at the sun, take me down
with a merciful shot

Like a lame dog whining
in the dust, take me down
with a merciful shot
