I've seen the worst of my own kind acting like they're justified in a world of counterfeit.
It's all so fake, everything they spit out, to convince themselves of ascendancy.
They’re so pretentious and it makes me sick.

You bring the worst out of me!
You don’t deserve a fucking thing.

I will watch as you become washed up on the shallow shores you tread.
I refuse to drown and become cold, so I will swim into the sunset where the world is just like me, even if I have to stand alone.
I cannot conform to what you are, so I will be my own.

I won’t be swayed, I never have.
Everything feels right here where I am and my heart hasn’t let me down just yet.
I’d like to find a common place where you and I can separate this needless bitterness.
But it works both ways.
You are the agitator.

You bring all of it back.
You bring it all back!
