Undone

You pick me up so you can push me down,
Just to see how long I’ll stay on the ground,
You pull me in just to shut me out,
Your illusions are crushed by the weight of my doubts,

This back and forth is a game to you,
It’s a shame we’re through,
I’m not playing with you.
Your disguises won’t make me blind to you
I can see your truth,
And I will not be subdued!

When my sanity was so hard to find,
You designed a lie to destroy my mind,
Creating the monster you said that I am,
‘Til I blindly ran alongside the damned,
The conscience I tried so hard to retain,
To be who you wanted, so easily contained,
Is slipping away as I look upon you,
While your mask dissolves from the acid you spewed,
The madness you wrought has only begun,
Should I keep it together, or let it all come undone?

Think I’ll dismantle the cage that you placed around me,
Craft my weapons from the scattered debris,
The lamb meant for slaughter is now part of the pack,
Devouring delusions leaving no thought intact,

This shit’s no longer a game to you,
It’s a shame we’re through,
I’m not done playing with you,
Your disguises no longer hide the truth,
I will claim my dues,
Told you I won’t be subdued!

When my sanity was so hard to find,
You designed a lie to destroy my mind,
Creating the monster you said that I am,
‘Til I blindly ran alongside the damned,
The conscience I tried so hard to retain,
To be who you wanted, so easily contained,
Is slipping away as I look upon you,
While your mask dissolves from the acid you spewed,
The madness you wrought has only begun,
I can’t keep it together, so I’ll just come undone.
