trouble

trouble you've been hanging around far too long
uneasy the feeling when i'm here alone
restless and nervous when you pull out your rues
clever illusion leaves me blackened and bruised
but calm and collected when dark turns to dawn

we're running in circles, we're stuck in a box
a cliche contradiction, an old paradox
but these misconceptions leave my back to the wall
fear of my shadow leaves me broken and flawed
trouble you're conflicted a victim of loss

i'm redefining satisfied
i won't concede it all
no longer trying to hide from you

your sinful infection it works in disguise
but your heresy faltered exposing the lies
i'll seek isolation locked in my quarantine
threading the needle gonna sew up the seams
trouble your own tactics have caused your demise
