Act

I hope my exit is ripping through your home
Like the direction I go
Like the hope you don’t know
Like the love we won’t sew

I hope regret is chewing like a mole
How you’re never feeling whole
Now it’ll never be a goal
You have no soul

I prey bygones have dug a proper grave
And to lust you are a slave
Now you have a place to pray
God won’t listen anyway

I hope hell becomes your permanent cave
And your tears break wave after wave
Like my heart you failed to save
You’re living decay

I hope the winter solace becomes a permanent artifact
How with her you’re always shacked
How your truth is always blacked
Who I am, you’ll just retract

Lies! With the devil you are packed
And she clearly has your back
Every lie will leave a track
You’re both an act
