lyrics

Try to get closure from a one way switch
I built my spine from broken promises
You're the type to break the knees I knelt to prey
For dispositions that seem to bring sustain
I sat on lower frames, before I knew to say
The words that shed light on your fallen skin
I'd show some truth to bind my lips again
I deserve more than this selfishness
You'll turn to find when you're done shedding skin
There's no one left praising


You pulled me in, like no one else ever did and I fell for it
A promise you won't keep but a trick I'll keep believing
I'd point finger if you weren't waiting to bend it back
You pulled me in, then threw me out again


Built a basement, Just to loath it
Cause I knew it came from buried boldness
A displacement of my courage
Now I'm tearing through the strings that tied me to old habits
In my place and
I knew I'd never dare stop playing at your marionette
But now I break the strings that kept me tongue tied
A punishment I won't resign


You pulled me in, like no one else ever did and I fell for it
A promise you won't keep but a trick I'll keep believing
I'd point finger if you weren't waiting to bend it back
You pulled me in, then threw me out again


I forced my trust for way too long
A rope you pulled on
It frayed and I stopped trying
The other side, I had moved on
And I'm now headstrong
Cause I'm done with crying

I'm now something you'll regret cause I'm now
Not so damn foolish

Take your heart
A decoy I won't fall for and I'm right
To make the judgment, step away
Until you have found your light

Your mindless sight
A wrong that you can't right
Just know that
I hope for your sake
You turn around
