Divorce

You’ve Been Evicted VERSE: No more living rent free in my mind. Fake victim game can waste your life, not mine. Throwing hands in county lockup over such a stupid fuck up. You’re a modern-day Delilah, set my hair on fire. Queen protects King but I just Castle, Skip your sorry little bitch Bishop-Pawn hassles. Shitty chess players, three minds together, Buck up little camper prepare for stormy weather. CHORUS: You’ve been evicted In your mind I’ve been convicted Give it time in the mirror girl You know you’re gonna be conflicted But you were evicted… VERSE: Time rolls on and the peanut gallery starts to grow weary. They’ll start to leave when they can see you more clearly. Entire campground full of low-quality carnival people. Swear they’ll be there when you need ‘em but they only mark you as evil. Their own projections can’t seem to make them feel better. Pretty soon they’ll all be wearing your scarlet letter. CHORUS: You’ve been evicted In your mind I’ve already been convicted Give it time in a mirror girl You know you’re gonna be conflicted But you were evicted! BRIDGE: It’s too late because know you’ve already been evicted… From my life, from my mind, from my time You know I’m gonna be just fine.

I can still feel you, kicking me like a horse; I should have seen your lies would, lead us straight to divorce. You whisper cum in me, I'm begging you come back please; I can hear your laughing, at my desperate pleas. [KNOX] (Hoes will be hoes.) I thought you was my ride or die, I felt we'd always be close; You were nowhere to be found, when I needed you most. I felt as if without you my life was incomplete, Now I realize the only way I face defeat is when I face my feet. I will take the loss you've got me, you're just a Jezabel using your body, Portraying yourself as a hottie, yet you're nothing but a thoughtie. (That Hoe over there... she just don't care.) It's well past time, for you to set me free; You spread it all over town, because you didn't want to know how to love me. You'll start to look for me, but you're never gonna' find; You're in the rear view mirror again, and baby this time I'm leavin' you behind. [KNOX] Attempting to maintain every day because it's all mental, Honestly I admit I struggle to not go all mental, (CRAZY!) Trying with respect, not allowing anyone to effect, my day with disrespect as I sit back and reflect. I can feel the disconnect, the perpendicular effect, As I continuously project the parallel effect, that no negativity can infect I live my life without regret, He's not through with me yet - God. I thought perhaps we could get that therapy, but with every legal maneuver, you stepped further away from me. sharing my dirty laundry is a sign of abuse, all the counsel you received was revealed to be obtuse. we really could have avoided all of this, I'd trade my soul for just a hug, or a nod, or even a kiss; All this pain has brought us both misery and that's the part I know I'll never ever miss, I loved you, I love you, but there's simply nothing I can do. you said it, ride or die and then abandoned me in my hour of need. you treated me no better than just another mouth to feed.

Go on and blame it on me. If that's what it takes to break free. Then go ahead and burn me baby, Go on and blame it on me. Go on and burn it to the ground. We both know we can’t be hangin’ ‘round. Because we both deserve better next time around, Go on and blame it on me. I can hear this voice inside my head, And all the hateful things that I said. Wanted you to know you hurt me. Needed to know that you heard me. You struck a match and scorched the ground, I looked and you were nowhere to be found. With all the things we've said, and everything that’s dead… Go on and blame it on me. Get on with livin’ your best life. I'll try to do the same with mine. Don’t go spoilin’ the good wine baby, Go on and blame it on me. Take out your brushes and your paint and your God damn easel, and paint an ugly picture, so they know that I’m evil... If you wanna know how to be free… baby, Go ahead on and blame it on me. You left a warrant on my heart. And now we’re busy tearing it apart. I think we both knew it from the start but, Go on and blame it on me. I’ve got the weight of the world on my shoulders, what’s a few more boulders? We both know you’re an angel baby. Go on and blame it, go on and blame it on me. You left a warrant on my heart. And now we’re busy tearing it apart. I think we both knew it from the start but, Go on and blame it on me. Go on and blame it on me. If that's what it takes to break free. Then go ahead and burn me baby, Go on and blame it on me. Go on and blame it on me. If that's what it takes to break free. Then go ahead and burn me baby, Go ahead and blame it on me.

You left me… a long time ago… Sadly I… was the last one to know. I was the first to make it all come true. In the blink of an eye, I said goodbye to you. But I didn’t know. No, I didn’t know. All our hopes and dreams unrealized, No plans just a pie in the sky; Two paths emerged unaware of the other, I tried to love you, but you felt smothered. And I didn’t know. No, I didn’t know. Will this depression ever end? Will I ever be myself again? I didn’t know what else to do – couldn’t stand the thought of losing you. But you’d already left me, a long time ago. So I snatched my mom’s Sig Saur, Drove North for five straight hours, Nobody knew that I had taken that gun. Wanted to die in our house, All alone. I didn’t know what else to do – couldn’t stand the thought of losing you. But you’d already left me, a long time ago.
