I Did This To Myself

-

I watched my demeanor change

__until my heart erupted

I blamed the world for my faults

__denying

____responsibility

I watched myself grow up to be nothing

__to any woman

'Least to any woman I wanted to

__mean anything to

My heart has sunken into my chest

__like a riot taken down

____from off of the shelf

______and repeating

________like history always does

It's so hard to break a pattern

When thee only thing that can change it

__is changing me

But I was razed not to sell out

Not to believe it was my fault

But if I am thee only problem

__in this equation

____then I must've razed myself

'Cause who would be this stupid

__to teach me what I have learned?

Still, the pattern of my unhappiness

__goes on and on

'Cause I am still stuck

__thinking I know what's best for myself

Even though I know in my heart

__that I must not know shit

'Cause look at the mess I'm in
