As you stitched your mind together,
You forgot your broken heart
Digging through the pieces,
Sewing up the tears
so many parts are missing
held by others who didn’t care
When you learned 1+1 is 2
Did you need to be retaught?
How many times can you repeat history
Before it’s long forgot?
You lie and say that it’s all fine
It has been working all along
Blood can still pump through broken vessels
Just pour until you feel less empty
When you learned not to divide by zero
Did it never sink in?
How many times can you break your mind
Before you stretch too thin?
You smile and hide your knives for teeth
As you search for a new friend
When nothing is everything,
Your cycles have no end
When you learned to spell and put i before e
Were you too weird to understand?
How many times can you be rejected
Before you use your own feet to stand?
With a liars’ tongue you lick your lips
As you spread poison spittle
Night descends now, so quickly you go
Climb in to your sleepy coffin
When you learned to love
Were you to selfish to see
How many times can you kiss and say pretty words
Before you see it’s your own reflection?
And this is fine, for inside is divine, my light will shine resplendent
As the lies chatter on, and my mind sings the song
My heart is learning new lessons
A new major to lead, by my own unique beat
No teacher to confuse my instinct
When you learned about coal
Were you too blind to see
How much pressure must be exerted
Before blackness becomes the beauty?
Thank you for being the shitty composers
That played the dirt from my pretty eyes
