It’s a Shame

It’s a Shame

When you bring me back those results, I can barely breathe
Ready to be deceived, eaten up by your efforts

Break me up, break me up in hell
And you thought you knew me back when
I was a little kid

I was one of your own, and this is your win
This is your celebration so let me drag it to the ground

I would suck all the blood from each one of you
When the drop of a dime
And you thought you knew me
When I was lying there bleed
You thought your reputation could withstand
My adolescent needs

It’s a shame that it has come to this
That after all the blood, the tears and the piss

It all has come down to this
This is the end of the road
The final days of what should have been a eternity

Well you thought you knew me
When I wasn’t a savage on the loose

Now days I’m writing right next to the noose

The recluse, working on the next great American book
Working on a few clever hooks (No you don’t!)
Maybe the days will be over soon

And I can fucking calm down
As my heart pounds and my hands sweat with something to prove
You thought you knew me when I didn’t have everything to gain, and nothing to lose
