DefensiveI don't trust you, and that angers you
But you deceive me, and that angers me;
I resist you, and so you push harder
You pressure me, and so I recede farther;
The feeling in my chest grows stronger
You mistake this twinge for love
And nurture it to your own peril;
I slip further from love, and you notice nothing
You continue wrongly, and it begins to sicken me
I close myself off, and you press your siege
You think you've won, and yet my defenses increase;
No, my friend, this is not love
It reeks of burning rage
And you stumble like a fool,
Forward into the blaze.
Confused Yet?Are you tossing? Turning?
Are you looking for a way?
Are you hurting? Dying?
Is it all because of me?
Are you wound up? Confused?
As distraught over me as I seem to you?
Are you falling? Deeper?
Untamed but far from the truth?
Do you hate me? Love it?
Understand the feeling at all?
Do you want this? Need it?
Think you can break down the wall?
Have you let go? Lost it?
Figured out where you're supposed to be?
Have you found it? Learned it?
Drawn the line between this and reality?
Will you give up? Let go?
Hand control back over to me?
Will you hear me? Love me?
Even give it time to see?
Am I yours now? Trapped here?
A spirit to forever be caged?
Am I lost now? Dying?
Left without wings to be chained?
