Weakness Was Always Your Strength

I just want my bubblegum pop
I just need to finally stop

I just want a baritone
I just need some time alone

I just want to sing my song
I just need to scream along

There was never really any question
Never really any doubt
You’d decided, you told me
And fuck it, we all wanted out

Trapped, in our ways
Frozen, in our tracks
One foot in front of the other
Even as we came scuttling back

It’s not easy
But it is easier if you just admit to it
Own up to the truth
Stick your chin out and take the hit

A little place to call your own
Out in the middle of nowhere
Bunkered down all alone
Holding back all you fear

Resistance is not impossible
But weakness was always your strength
Even as you told me otherwise
Over and over at such great length

It was always hollow
These claims never rang true
Everytime we talked
I could see right through you
