Sharp Objects

Open your eyes It's time to pay attention Take a good look at your life And it's deteriorating condition No one can run indefinitely Your soul will succumb to exhaustion All that you fear, you must confront eventually Escaping reality forever is not possible I know you don't want to lose everything And you haven't any time to waste You're not the only one who's suffering Just how long do you think she can wait You gave up your right to self-indulgence When you made the choice to give life to another There's no excuse for such indolence Now that you have become somebody's mother As you inject away her future I hope you feel more than just a little shame If you don't stop you are going to lose her This is her life that you're laying to waste
