“If You Need Me, I’ll Be In The Basement”

It’s getting harder, so much harder.
The past has me chained up from my arms.
So here’s a letter. I thought that I had her.
I tried to cover up these scars.
I got a fucked up mind, a crooked spine.
and I find it hard to breathe sometimes.
The ribcages that you’ve collected
remind me of how hollow you are.

I was oblivious, you lost your innocence.

Just look at what you’ve done
to all of these young and innocent boys.
I wasn’t the only one. I wasn’t the only one.

Now that it’s over, I should of told her
that she was everything I need.
I should be better, I should have never let you crawl inside of me.
She’s like a spider bite, a parasite that eats away at me.
I’ll just sit back and relax while her cold words run through my veins.

I left the room with the truth
in the palm of my hand.
There’s no way out that will not hurt.
I wasn’t the only one. I wasn’t the only one.
