"The Poison On Your Tongue" First rock style song I've written in a long time.

Verse 1:

Separate, sifting through my memories, I can't concentrate. Reliving the fear and my past mistakes, but you ask me to forgive. But how do I begin?


You ask me why I feel the way I do, you ask me about the nightmares and the things I hear in my own head. Then you tell me it'll go, if I just talk and make amends, but I've tried it before, there's nothing left to do. 

Pre Chorus: 
Its my fear and flaws, I let the world down. I can't make amends, I can't forgive, I can't move on, I should've been loved, I should've been protected but no...... 

Chorus:
I was let down. Made to live through lies and delusions of perfection. But my soul was smashed, my life was twisted, turned and wrenched and you! You did this to me! You failed your job as my guardians, you abused me, never wanted me. I will not forgive. I will not forgive. 

Verse 2: 
I'm 20 next week, I never expected to see that day. I cut and cut and swore I would be dead 3 weeks on Saturday. I was 14 years old, battling with depression. 

What did you call it? 

You called it a lie, you called it bullshit. Said I was tryna make it all about me, but no. I was crying to you, begging for you to make my suffering end. 

Pre Chorus: 
Now your abuse and flaws, you let the world down. You won't apologise, won't make amends. I'm not surprised that you won't take responsibility for your mistakes.

Chorus: 
I was let down. Made to live through lies and delusions of perfection. But my soul was smashed, my life was twisted, turned and wrenched and you! You did this to me! You failed your job as my guardians, you abused me, never wanted me. I will not forgive. I will not forgive. 

Bridge:
You said I was like the one who hurt me. Sat on your high horse like you've done no wrong. No. You're like him, you always were. Out for yourself, poison on your tongue. 

Chorus:
I was let down. Made to live through lies and delusions of perfection. But my soul was smashed, my life was twisted, turned and wrenched and you! You did this to me! You failed your job as my guardians, you abused me, never wanted me. I will not forgive. I will not forgive. 

Outro:
So now this day must come to close. I take off my boots, and hang my jacket up. My guitars lay tuned, ready for tomorrow's pain release. 

Dream now of what your life should be. Try and dream of something merry. Don't look at his face. Don't look at her face. Just look away and weep, you won't have to taste that poison on her tongue again.
