All of you heroes
You wannabe knights in shining armor
Think you can rescue a damsel in distress…
I have 2 words for you –
This stupid game of pretend you play
Is my daily reality.
Fully convinced only you have the secret code to remove the spell,
Only you hold the magic key to release the curse,
Your kiss alone, shall rescue the princess!
Breaking news for you,
It can’t and it won’t.
Fool yourself, but I see through.
This is not from your heart –
Not even good intent
So spare me your illusion
The speech of unshakable love.
It’s your lame man ego is all –
The hunter that rules the house;
The one in the drivers seat that needs no directions;
The one that can fix everything, never needing to ask for a hand.
Keep running around your own house
With your super hero cape and mask.
Wash your dirty hands.
Rinse that filthy mouth.
I’ll say it again –
I see right through you
No. You cannot fix me.
I’m not a fucking experiment
I’m not a fucking toy
I’m not an exciting riddle to crack.
Don’t wanna be your muse either
To be tossed on a whim, into the trash.
See unlike your inner coward
I actually do invest
I traverse all my millions of fears
Believing in your best.
But this cold blooded creature now,
Has built an unrecognisably hard shell,
Retracting within a second
Cuz your ‘commitments’ fail the smallest test.
So I say this yet again,
With much respect
Fuck Off you heroes
You ain’t got a chance in hell.
