Self Awareness (look what you made me do...)

Self Awareness
(look what you made me do...)

One could carve a scarlet alphabet
deep into my pseudo saintly skin
Yet not expose completely or reveal just yet
all my forbidden secret hidden sins

No doubt I'd still point my crooked angry finger
through the blood, the scars and self-inflicted pain
Deep seeded thoughts of justification would surely linger
I'd have no problem finding targets for which to aim my blame

One could constrain and bind my neck complete
with yoke, albatross and brimstone as well
With pet monkey on my back digging in with both feet
I'd still paint my mirror black and set my sights on hell

Through the burdens, banes, bonds and bars I choose
with gritted teeth, clenched fist, anger will swell
I will run through the usual suspects I always use
as scapegoats: Parents/Satan/Church and even God as well

The day I truly look into the mirror and truly see my cage
and instead of my own, I start to follow instead His plan
That'll be the day the light comes on in my blinding rage
and I'll realize "the blame" and "the key" both lie in my hand

I like it a lot.
Why do we fight so hard to maintain our right to be miserable?
Yes. I like it very much.

Responsibility belongs to you
for what you freely chose to do.
There is a price you have to pay
for choosing to go your own way.
You always knew that there would be
Why waste your time in blaming me.
For every sin you must atone
Because my friend your on your own.
All you can do is try your best
and see if you can pass the test
Success will lead to peace of mind.
When you can leave your sins behind
And face the future confident
Youll sin no more and be content.
