"Pernicious" as written by and Oli Herbert Michael Martin....
I'm wise enough to know these promises pernicious.
The fruit of what was sewn and still I'm reeling.
Mistrust forever more, the wake you left is vicious.
Your hate can't help but show and still I'm reeling.

Done throwing coins in a wishing well,
Break walls that you have built yourself.
I'm done with all the lies you speak.
No more won't turn the other cheek.

How could I have ever thought it'd be worth it?
You're falling farther, and farther, and farther, and farther apart.
How is it you don't know?

I'm wise enough to know these promises pernicious.
The fruit of what was sewn and still I'm reeling.
Mistrust forever more, the wake you left is vicious.
Your hate can't help but show and still I'm reeling.

I'm growing tired, you manipulate.
Your words, they further aggravate.
I drew the line, now will you make a move?
Weakness, that's what's inside of you.
I am still warm from transgression, aggression.
I still feel the sting, can't help but question,
And suffer the wrath of conditions created by you.

How could I have ever thought it'd be worth it?
We're falling farther apart.
How is it you don't know?

(I'm wise enough to know, to know...)
(I'm wise enough to know, to know...)

I'm wise enough to know these promises pernicious.
The fruit of what was sewn and still I'm reeling.
Mistrust forever more, the wake you left is vicious.
Your hate can't help but show and still I'm reeling.

(I'm reeling, I'm reeling...)
(I'm reeling, I'm reeling...)
