I want to tear you apart
And put you back together.
I want to break down
The walls of self consciousness.
I want to tell you everything,
Everything you fear, everything that you hate.
I want to tell you that
All the thoughts that
Keep you up at night are true.
Tell you that the world
Really is an unjust place.
I want to see you bleed and cry.
I want to see you die.
I want you to see
All the things that I've seen.
Go all the places that I've been.
Feel all the pain that I have felt,
And I want to hear you scream.
I'd like to lie, and say it's a dream.
But I'd rather tell you the truth.
I'd like to tell you it's all ok,
Instead, I want you to think for yourself,
And I want you to make up your own mind.
The reason I want to do all these things
Is to see you be reborn, and take flight
Like a Phoenix; to see that the world we live in is Cruel, but you don't have to be cruel or hide to survive.
Because when you know all the rules of the game,
Maybe you can actually win.
