One Big Facade

It’s like a daily dose of sugar-
laced poison
Bittersweet agony that came 
out of no where
Like being forced to stare down 
a loaded gun
And trusting your darkest hour 
not to pull the trigger
Like your worst enemy with 
your heart in their hands
And you only want to see them 
as your old best friend
Like watching matches strike 
against kerosene 
And only doing it to see the 
lights flash
It’s just like being surrounded 
by flames
With bullets flying past your 
mind's eye
With your heart in the hands of 
a traitor
And all you choose to see and 
feel and live
Is the warmth the flames give 
The insane feat of lead missing 
your flesh
And your heart’s false security 
with someone else
It’s all a fabricated scenario
It’s the one thing you really 
And it’s all you ever want life to
