You describe, something else
You denounce me as a resource though I said it myself
You quote me all wrong
All the spit, you would spray
Bit by bit, you rearrange me then you put me on display
To imply things I’ve done

You try to drown out my sound
That tactic can’t hack at my racket
Wisecracks comeback back at attack

You divide what you choose
Can’t decide, if, at any, long term damage you could do
I’m grounded and ready
You protest, with bad taste
A contest, to try and make the other make saltwater with their face
So profane and deadly

Started with you, ended with you, thinking through my reply
Pacing with my hands out, shaking, eyes down, making
Mothers react, others retract, behind my back all black
Pondering your reasons, leavin’, grievin’, she’s been
Plotting all of, this time when our love, should have been all above, our problems
But something made you doubt me, not see, only , angry
She’s broken a vow, I’m fired up now, I’m telling it how it went down
I’m opening the front door, scream for, encore, once more THREE! FOUR!

You retreat, to your friends
I’ll repeat, to prevent you from ever messing up the end
You can’t keep me down!
