Turn Away

You look at me like I’m some kind of disease
It’s funny to me how you judge at such ease
I wonder when you will see your fate
Your pathetic words won’t help when it’s too late

Look into your mirrored eye of mistakes
It is crawling with a crowd of fakes
Soon you will drown in your own pool
Your mind will play you like a fool

When you finally realise the truth of life
Don’t dare look at me to take out the knife
I’ll watch your bleeding back as you lay
Repaying the favour as I turn away...
