I’ve been spending all these years merely looking for the one
Everytime I think I found her, give her reason to run
Had to drop it like a bomb, I could tell you were stunned
Can’t tell you any other way we’re over and done
We spent so many months just building up the trust
Kinda hard to tell the truth when you’re built from lust
I could see it on your face; I could feel it in my gut
It used to shine through; you let the passion turn to rust
Can’t trust half these women with their overplayed innocence
You tore this shit to pieces, the lost cause vigilance
You used to be a stimulant, now you’re just an irritant
I’ll fight my way through the scars from all the past incidents
My angel in disguise missing halo and wings
Come to find its all to coverup your devilish things
Hold your voices in the past from the future I breathe
Now listen to the pain my soul finally sings

We’re a lost cause baby it’s no surprise
You’re all fangs and claws I can see it in your eyes
So what do we do when it’s over and done?
I think the time has come to move along to the next one


Now it's three years later and you're calling me back,
I thought I gave you every reason, stay calm and relaxed
But you’re causing a ruckus, you’re causing a wrack
Possessed eye red, fade to evil and black
Torn, then I’m beat down and rattled again
I don’t have to keep it hidden, I don’t have to pretend
That she knew all along what I found in the end
that my mother always said we’d be better friends
Cause I gave it all and it was always lost
On the cause so helpless never told enough
When the times get heavy the times get rough
Just assemble that bow, mars slaying your bluff


So I let you back in, against my better judgement
All the arguments and drama almost more than I could stomach
Assumed it was over when apparently it wasn’t
Thought my opinion mattered but I guess it really doesn’t
You’re caught up playing games that the devil would win
Spinning, moving places with my heart at the end
Keep flexing that spine and examine the give
Cause I’m Never quite broken, but you’re testing the bend
With that cold dank hold i’m a slave to the grip
Caught you jetting out early but those wings were clipped
I’ve been with cut the edge that the fangs will stitch
Let you Bolt like before but you’re an angry bitch
Now Those teeth marks you left are repeatedly flaunted
I’m running from the nightmares of the dreams you’ve haunted
I remain undaunted. but the demon obsessed
As I shake myself awake, I lay the monster to rest
