I'm holding up the ceiling

while you're tearing down my walls

your words like a chainsaw

through lies I thought were true

so many times you knock me down

but will never let me fall

I'm not dead so I guess

you'll make me strong

do I know who you are?

do you care who I am?

both answers are most likely no

but you remind me of someone

i used to know

becoming what I thought he could be

those expectations died in him

like Christ the lamb was slain

but also like Christ on Easter morn

they're rising again but in you

I may be wrong

like I so often am

but you've wormed you way into my head

it's just your hobby

reading people's hearts

but am I the best or worst part?
