lyrics

You, took, me,
Out to your garden
Put, your, knife,
In my back, and i’d fall to the ground
But you’d take offense,
And I hope your apple,
Falls far from your tree,
Your judgemental soil,
Can spoil good seeds,
I could cultivate,
But I, can’t make you grow,
Because, your rot beneath the surface,
And you’ll reap what you sow.

As the boy who cried wolf,
But was the wolf all along,
Gather the townspeople,
To tell them off,
Never a copy, but always a fake,
And in a sea of smiles, you,
Swim like a snake.

I’ll be, over, the bridge that,
You burned down,
To make me, look bad,
And in the ash, I’ll plant a seed,
You’re myopic and naive,
To think I was a sheep,
But i won’t be waiting,
For you to sink your teeth,
Your malady,
And incongruities,
Are over,
I hope you get frostbite,
From the cold shoulder,
I could cultivate but I,
Can’t make you grow,
Because you rot beneath the surface.


As the boy who cried wolf,
But was the wolf all along,
Gather the townspeople,
To tell them off,
Never a copy, but always a fake,
And in a sea of smiles, you,
Swim like a snake.
