I let you under my skin
claws digging unmercifully
i let you get to my head
a constant abomination
past the door of consciousness

so did you think that your relentless interventions
would finally cause me to lose my grip
I guess the joke is on you
Pending your removal
you've decided that I'm now an old friend

So are you happy happy?
well I can tell you that I am

And then there's you
Mr. "I need you to do this for me"
followed by guilt trip if i say "no"
promises while asking for compromises
under the lovely guise of family ties and protection
far be it from me
to remind you of the fact
that all these bridges burnt can't be built back
I guess I should've recognized that side
before I wasted so much time
so I apologize for the both of us

so are you happy happy?
well i can tell you that i am
