Promises

Forgetting the promises you make
Is how your, your promises easily break
Oh, you sit on your fence and I’ll dig under it
I’ll count my losses and I’ll count my sins
I hope you’ve cleared your mind…

~*~

Promises, promises

Are all they’ll ever be

I heard the same thing

A million times lately

.

Promises, promises

Said you were sincere

But guess I’m to blame

For thinking you’re here

.

Promises, promises

Of vows against blood

Your hand on the devil

When you swore to god

.

Promises, promises

Kept my end of the side

But cheaters will cheat

And the liars always lie

.

Promises, promises

Guess they don’t extend

Cutting ties, and it’s over

Rules were made to bend

.

Promises, promises

Made simply out of need

You’re a bastard for lying

And I was a fool to believe.

~*~

We’re running out of time
We’ve got things on our mind
And things we just don’t like
Who do you want to see?
Who do you want to be tonight?

Sever

Cut away the binding, choking crimson cords

That connect us, effectively separating our ties

Pop all the exchanged bubbles of floating words

Broken fuzzy communications between you and I

Shatter the shiny mirror that together we built

Rid the evidence, sure, but the scars will remain

Burn the rickety bridge connecting our domain

Relay conflagration while I’m still crossing it

Shamelessly walk away from this and simply leave

Between us, gracelessly build a huge towering wall

Just leave me dangling, calling, in this jagged angry cliff

Just sever the rope, my last lifeline, and let me take the fall.
