You've got the world wrapped around your fingers
And why wouldn't you?
With that charming smile,
That contagious laugh?
Everything you want, you get
Because no one can resist you.
Everyone loves you
Because no one sees past you
You take what you want
Not caring about others
And, if you do care
It's not real.
You smile at someone as you drive a knife through their back.
Someday, someone's going to get you
And you'll be revealed
What lies underneath
I cannot say.
No one can resist you
We are the moths to your flame.
Yet, you are rewarded for your crimes
As if even the world couldn't say no to you.
What must it be like,
Having everyone bending at your will?
Having the world bow down before you?
Even now, as these harsh scrawls
Pierce the page,
I feel an unyeilding sense of regret.
What if there's more?
What if she's broken?
What if she's hurting?
Then I think of how that could be no more
Than a deadly weapon in your arsenal.
Someday, you'll find out what it's like
To stand in the place of us.
To watch someone you can't help but love
Take everything away from you.
And you're powerless to stop it.
Someday, you'll fall off that pedestal we've placed you on
And I'll be standing with the mourners
Because you've compelled us all.
