For years I walked on eggshells 
Afraid to share my goals & dreams
Not even friends could pass by
For fear of being chastised by your insane beliefs & your mouth
Do you have any idea what it feels like 
To be used & abused?
But never again 
The conditions in place are only a guideline
To see if you can tow the line
If you can't respect these rules
I'll never be able to have you as a friend 
Do you know how fuck'n painful that is
To know you're out there 
And wanting to still be friends
But I can't 
Not anymore
Your anger & lack of control
The way you threatened my life 
And expressed how you wanted to fuck'n kill me
That morning I left with only the 
Clothes on my back
Scared shitless
Wondering if I would live to see the end of day
Perhaps you don't even know
That I too was taken away by police
Humiliated by having to sit in the back seat
Like a fuck'n criminal
When I hadn't done anything wrong
All I wanted was to live a simple quiet life
I had made a decision long before this
That it was time for me to leave
And pursue doing what I loved 
It's no secret I wanted to be on the water
And be cooking for people as they sailed
On their weekly charters or their global circumnavigations 
Across the oceans & seas
I want to live without restrictions
I have been feeling suffocated for too long
I wanted to be free from your shackles
After all ... You totally sucked me dry
I gave you everything I could 
I set up your business
I made sure you could go on alone
But even that wasn't good enough for you
You still wanted to fuck with my head
How much did you think I was gonna take?
The thought of you being arrested breaks me
It brings tears to my eyes
And I'm not sure why
I wanted you to be my last
I was hoping we'd take on the world together
But every time I tried to steer you on the right course
You took advantage of me again
Showing me that I couldn't trust you
And still ... I helped you
But never again
