Learn to Hate
What happens when you give away your heart,
And they throw it right in your face?
What happens when you tell them your secrets,
And they decide to reveal it to the world?
I sacrificed myself to you,
You locked me on a leash and drag me around.
I’m scared and beaten to the end of the line.
When are you going to stop?
I let you inside of me all the way,
And you decided to throw my faults in my face.
You overlooked the good and said,
That there was nothing but everything you killed.
Now you look me in the eyes,
And tell me that you love me.
I see right through you.
This is all one big joke, a lie.
The stole my heart for a while,
Took my entire life from my hands.
I must admit, I let you do it.
I gave my everything to you.
The rest of the world finds you perfect,
But I can see right through the mask.
To me it has become invisible.
Still I let you sit and kill me.
Would quit defying me and wounding my heart?
Stop throwing my darkness in my eyes.
I’m blinded now, I can no longer see.
You’re going to be the death of me.
I guess it’s time to throw away my heart.
Become a figure of everything dead.
No light for you now my darling.
Now I’m releasing myself from you.
Wow. I don’t even know what this is?
Where am I?
What did you do with me?
How do I go on by myself?
I have nothing there inside of me.
I look into the dumpster beside me.
There it is. That heart you destroyed.
Anything is better than having that back.
Now I walk away from myself.
No more life, no love, no emotion.
Now it is time that I go fill this whole.
What am I to fill it with?
What is something that can never hurt me?
I see it in the distance.
Why is it not very pretty?
It looks dreadful from a distance, yet beautiful.
Everything is over now.
My self has gone away to destruction.
It is time that I learn,
That hate is the way to never hurt.
I walk along this desolate world,
Hating every single one of you.
I don’t care if you want to care.
You will never get inside.
Please don’t care about me,
I wish not to hurt you also.
But I will, I promise I will.
I've damned it! I have killed you too.
