“So I have some questions I would like you to answer”
“Why do you need to know the answers
that you stopped asking long ago
I have taught you everything you need
and everything you ought to know".
"But go ahead and ask the questions
I’m sure the answers will be the same
they are ones I have whispered to you
when we started this fun little game”.
“I think I found out some things
that you haven’t been honest about.
Things that you have hidden from me
words laced with lies throughout".
"So, if you don’t mind
if you have the time to spare
can you give me just one moment of your time
to answer the questions I have to share".
“The moments we share together
are valuable to me for sure.
I don’t mind repeating myself
as I have done so many times before”.
But I notice that you spell my name wrong
you’re spelling it different than before.
I have earned that mark of honor and respect
why you changed it I am unsure".
“So here’s the thing as a point of interest
of the reason for the lowercase
I’ve done some investigating of my own
around the respect that you embraced".
"It seems your character is in dispute
but I’m sure you already knew
that your references are not held in high regard
and your words aren’t entirely true”.
“ Oh I see the problem here
you have misunderstood the tone
It’s not MY belief that’s important here
It’s your belief that carries it’s own".
You see, everything I say comes true
you just confirm what you already know
I just echo your past mistakes
then sit back and enjoy the show”.
“See now you’re good at that
turning it around to self blame
but there is one thing I am learning
that you and I are NOT the same".
"So stay there for a while
the rules are about to change
this conversation is far from over
it’s time to play my game".
"I read the book you wrote for me
I'm gonna point out the ones you got wrong
the new author is about to change the content
so sit back and play along".
“I’m uncomfortable with this conversation
you almost sound like you own me
this dialog has a different feel
to the words you used to show me".
"I don’t like the determination in your voice
is there a problem with what I said
I remember when you were so much quieter
When I would speak for you instead".
“But give it time and you will come back to me
then all will be forgiven
It's never the same when you’re not here
You're the product of my creation".
"I will always be here whenever you need me
I’m never too far away
I will always keep arms open for you
I’m your protective self-made hideaway”
"You said to me once that I’m not worth much at all
But I'm not entirely sure that was true
You told me that my value was less
and it could only be found with you".
“So you can start to let go of me
I have already start that process
I’m a little bit stronger than I was before
And I believe you a little less".
"There is a small part of me I hid from you
that is growing bigger by the day
It’s a little bit of me inside
That you can never take away".
"You tried to cover it over
with your lies and your deceit
I will be saying it more often these days
That I am NOT your defeat
“Your weakness no longer has ownership over me
your words have a softer blow
you have hidden a lot of things from me
that are important for me to know”.
"Like you’re very selfish and very needy
in your weak and unstable foundation
but have you got a backup plan
when this life becomes my creation!"
"I’m tired of the weight of you
and I’m tired of you holding me down
I’m not the person you think I am
you no longer get to push me around".
“But I have spent many year in labour
making this home just for you
the set up in this home is personal
it’s a comfortable home for two".
"The acoustics in there is perfect
from the lowly sound you make
the echo has lasted for days and months
from my voice that you imitate".
"I have designed this house with plenty of windows
so you can stop and enjoy the view
the mirrored windows capture you perfectly
framed by the fragments of what used to be you".
"My mark lays embedded in you
it shows up well in what you’re reflecting
you are the product of my careful design
It’s my outline that you are projecting".
Do you like the decor in this house?
does it appeal to your sense of taste?
I try to keep it simple for you
somewhere you can call home and embrace".
"You see, it’s time for a closer examination
it’s time for me to review
maybe it’s time to start to remove
all the things that are untrue".
"When I started to peel of the wall paper you hung
and found a little of me under cover
I saw the depth of the lost part of me
the part you desperately try to smother".
"The deeper I went
the more I discovered
that I’m not the thin slimy Clingfilm
that you so meticulously covered".
"I can see my true worth behind your lies
it’s been there all along
I can see the strong bits of me under you
it’s about now you may want to hold on".
Cause this ride’s about to get bumpy
its gonna shake the foundations of your lies
cause what you once told me was truth
is gonna be the start of your demise".
