black as coal

so subtle and two-faced
i never suspected you
i always thought your word was true
always did what you wanted me to

but i see through your face
into the darkness that is your soul
you can’t hide it
your heart’s
as black as coal, black and cold

calculating and cold
your demons grab me as i fall
to persuade me to do your will
to make me think you’re worth anything at all

it’s been too long
i let you play the cards
now it’s time for me to leave
i’m pulling the plug
i’m abandoning you
it’s time you found someone else to decieve
