In The Mirror
I could hate you for all the things
that I will never be
The love, the honor, the strength,
and the undying loyalty
All the evil you possess
is a detriment to my existence,
a black hole in my soul
that controls my inner spirit
I could hate you for everything
that you never allowed me to see
All the moments you took away...
the man you never wanted me to be
All the mistakes I have made
are all because of you
due to your selfishness and bitterness
that you were too stubborn to get through
I could hate you forever,
yet forever isnít long enough...
not nearly long enough for you to feel me...
not nearly long enough to see what you screwed up
Now, you hide behind a persona
that justifies what you are,
but I see through all your lies
and what it is that sets us both apart
But hating you will get me nowhere,
for hating you, is hating me
You are I and I am you
and that happenstance
is the irony that keeps me from saying...
I hate you
...just bein' Bluesy
