Requiescat in Pace

If I knew it was gonna be this 
way
I would've never invested
The time and money spent
On the girl I thought I loved 
but I truly resented
We say we learned but I really 
just grew 
I remained the same man I was
Changed for the better
But the same guy you knew
Now I'm in debt
And I owe my time
To people who matter
But I ain't gotta dime
To my name so what does it 
matter?
I don't know what I was 
thinking
Keeping you with me in the first 
place
I got too comfortable 
I blindly followed-I gave chase
I cant put all the blame on you
But why not treat scum like 
scum
Like how it feels? 
I chew you up and spit you out
Just like cheap bubblegum
You were never any better 
Actually worse
So get off your high chair 
Before I put you were you 
belong 
And return you back to your 
hearse
Cause your dead inside
I should've smelled it from the 
beginning 
I should have never spent my 
time caring
And kept to digging
