From The Run

Verse 1
My anger is sulking and silent
as your harm ruminates
heightening by your sharp intent
the fruit by which concentrates

it hurt me that you try to hurt me
and your forward seeds more than your book
my perception reads your avidity
the look takes more than what it took

I need to see you heal me
So, I get passed what's done
then I can forgive, and live and be
and warm down from the run

Verse 2
you tried to break the bone to fix the break
one more fracture doubles the pain
can't discern your motive thru the ache
trauma often impairs from the strain

you know its your fault I know fear
and you enjoyed how you casted the dark
I saw the look in their eyes perfectly clear
now a path of dread left to embark

I need to see you heal me
So I get passed whats done
then I can forgive and live and be
and warm down from the run

you need to know fear to overcome it
purpose needs to feel a burn to know it kills
agony pushes us us to the limit
to overcome survival develops skills

Verse 3:
Yes I know but it really hurt
the remains the painfull reminder
your covert mission was really overt
its time you be a little kinder

Don't worry I forget that I forget
I forget that I forget
I forget that I forget
