Validation

While we were apart
You said you need some time
I said baby I miss you
And want to make you mine
You called me a liar
Said I replaced when you’re gone
At first I disagreed
I told you you were wrong

But now I see
I just need some validation
Tell me that I matter
And hear out my frustration
Tell me that you want me
We both know that it’s true
Maybe I did replace you
Maybe I don’t need you

Yeah I’m a sick bastard
But at least I know it
I hate who I am
But I’ll never show it
If you want me back
Maybe I’ll work on me
Just tell me that I’m awesome
Tell me I’m pretty

In Between

Everyone I’ve ever liked
Is dead
Replaced by shells
They all disappoint
Left me here to fight
To struggle and survive
Makes me wonder
What’s the point

How can I be right
When the world disagrees
Can’t find solace
When there’s turmoil inside me

Help me find the motive
I’m drawing a blank
Hate or love
It doesn’t matter
When the only one
on my side
Who sees like me
Is a mirror

How can I be right
When the world disagrees
Can’t find solace
When there’s turmoil inside me

It’s never enough
Or way too far
Always over the line
I’m stuck in the middle
The greater of two evils
Life’s contradictory
In nature
A perpetual riddle

How many times?

A lesson can be told
Again and again
But mistakes will be made
Time after time
Why can’t we learn
Without doing wrong
Why can’t we avoid
Things that do us harm

And yet here we are
In the same place as before
Too afraid to make a change
Too scared to even try

How many times
Should a lesson be learned
Until it sticks
How many times
Must the wrong path be walked
Until the right one is found
Where can we turn
When we do this to ourselves
