My rasping voice
Echoes rage from a dry throat
Expired after hours of drilling
Word after word into your thick skull.
God dammit, you just don\'t listen.
I\'ve got nothing left;
I started off pulling my punches,
And ended up pushing my weight into
Every expletive I flung at you.
Now I\'m on my knees,
Grabbing at my cracked, dry throat,
Coughing and choking
As my face turns red
And your ignorance eats me from inside out.
Are you even listening?
Do you even care?
What will it take
To get my message through to you
So you can understand my problems?
You turn a deaf ear
And flash a coy smile
That makes me want to strangle you
Until your grin twists and contorts
Into the same grimace I bear.
You make me want to hurt you, you know.
Only by cutting you open
Can I drive my point home.
But that\'s what you want
Well, don\'t wait for that day
Because it isn\'t coming.
Not from me.
I\'m returning your callousness,
Your cold-hearted apathy,
Dropping it at your prescious feet
