I finally found my voice, but forgot how to speak
Been quiet for so long, my tongue is too weak
I’m fighting against this silence that has lasted so long
This silence taunts my mind with why things went all wrong.
And yet the taste is so bitter when I spit out that story
Of how I had to cover for the lies you left in your glory.
Now after all this time of deceit and disguise,
It’s hard to get my mouth to stop speaking lies.
But I’ll get my revenge before it’s all said and done
And I’ll sing the eerie tune that you've left to be sung.
