False friend Betrayal and loss

Another eccentric façade flows decadence Beside yourself with a quaint mockery Counting blessings you sought after a hummingbird life Do the scars that you cherish set you free? Escaping your feeble yet cynical pestilence For my exuberance is tainted by thee Go drink from the lake and drown your horses with shame Hallowed by harlots they're cursing your name Insanity sane insane sanity Justified in lost memory knock down the wall Lose your mind and go soar Many years waiting to wait many more No one will speak your name Once you are showered in shame Please know I have lost a dear friend Queensberry rules or a fight to the end Roam the depths of mind Share with me what you find Time is no fortress Undo all the lies Versatility does not make you kinder my life Why don't you twist the blade in my back from your knife X-rays for my cancerous self You have dissuaded with presence and stealth Zeal for you is an expression of hate.
