The real you

Wed, 07/10/2013 - 17:59 -- Ari


It was all you
The pain, the fear
The crippling fear
Oh it was their words
And fists
But you stood there with that smile
Let’s play pretend to care
Tell me you didn’t mean each word
Tell me you weren’t just as bad as them
Pretend you didn’t hurt me
I dare you
Look me in the eye just once
Stop signing words of peace, to the choir
And flinging words of hate to your best friend
Stop this act
Tell me which ways up and which ways down
Tell me where we’re going
Tell me you didn’t mean it
Or that you did
Just for once I’m begging stop the game
Pick a side
Make up your mind
Just tell me who are you? really
