I still dread seeing that name
broiled into my brain
flamed by hope and blind trust
setup to be ground into dust
so there's never a way to save face
there's no way to be friends
No place I can stand to see you again

I wanted to rage, but my soul is tired
of the games and lies that conspired
against me, so now I just recall
you only gave me words after all
Words that don't walk and talk on their own
Or hold you anywhere except frozen

what started out as rope got tangled up in you and me
so I hope you know you're forgiven, feel free
Carrying regret just slows me down
and Lord knows, there's shitloads of that in our hometown
