I can’t stand the way you’ve been changing
Onto a path that’s set for failure.
So stupid, I didn’t notice at first.
And when I did, it was already way too late then.

Is the friend that I once knew now gone?
Did all those years of friendship mean nothing?
Was it my fault? Was I not there for you?
Every day I blame myself for what you’ve become.

Lost to drugs, lost to friends, and me.
Blind to truth, blind to self, can’t see.
Fake to you, fake to me. Obscene.
Face to face, you’re just an empty shell hallowed out.

Lost to me.
I don’t see the friend
I once knew.

Fuck this man. Fuck this shadow of you.
I despise the essence of your being.
Would not harm the one I call my friend,
But now he’s gone and he has only left a shadow.

Condescend, but comprehend nothing.
Follow all, think you know it all. Not True.
All you do are things to pleasure yourself.
Sad thing is, you think you have a life worth living.

Enough with you, I’m through being the fool.
I tried my best, but still it wasn’t enough.
I see now there is no way to save you.
only way is if you see you must save yourself.
