You're in denial
You say I wanted to
You're in exile
I need to get rid of you
You say I liked it
I think you're insane
I hated every bit
So why should I feel this shame?
You left me in pain
With no blood or bruises for them to see
My loss was your gain
You wouldn't leave me be
You wouldn't listen to me
Or hear what I had to say
Now you're gone I'm free
But you've left me trapped in every way
I can't wash the tainted bits off any day
So I just live for today.
