I said I’d never deal in redundancy
I can never be content in repetition,
But I’m still in your arms
Still looking into your eyes
Like a scratched CD
Going over and over and over.
Now “I love you” is reversed,
A quick way out
Belligerents neutralized before blood
There is no love in war.
There are strings tied to my limbs
You’re the puppeteer
Pulling my arms around you
Despite my frown
Against my will
In bitter ignorance of my craving
I’m doing my best to fake it
But we both know I’m losing my cool.
I thought I was the girl of change 2.0
I guess I’ve become more of a prototype
And I thought you’d have changed
From the boy I saw
To the boy I knew
But you’ve gone from the boy I knew
To a violent stranger
In my heart’s clothing.
Now I cannot speak, I’ve lost my voice
I’m speechless and redundant
‘Cause I love you’s not enough,
I’m lost for words
