Lonely Me

Like a myrmidon to your Trojan horse
You play your mind games and I unlock the door
My self-respect is under siege by you
I’m so lonely

Feed my emotions just to watch me starve
And wrap your soft hands around my hungry heart
Crush me in cold blood and wash the guilt away
I’m so lonely

Please, you’re taking my pride again
Please, you’re making me blind again
Please, you’re breaking my mind again
Please, your lonely me

You show your hand once I’ve bet too much
And raise the ante with every tender touch
I fold to feel it just one last time
I’m so lonely

With every single smile that you deny
Your rope tightens until I’m dying inside
So pull the lever, watch me fall down
I’m so lonely
I’m bruised, confused, refused, abused
Your lonely me
