lyrics

Like a moth to flame each time she calls my name
With lips of poison her words are lies
To keep me down, keep me under she tries

She says "This is who you are now, it's how you ought to be"
I'm sorry to be disappointing, but darling that just isn't me

And I tried volume and boldness flawed ways to approach this
Intensity falls on blocked ears
So this time I'll lean in and speak gently these words sent intently
Be careful so that you may hear
I need you to leave me be

And your doubt I've earned
Returned to you, I've turned my back on lessons learned
I paid you attention, I paid in rebellion, He paid in blood
My fall followed pride, and I cannot hide, remorse is a flood

She says "You won't be worth more than you are now,
And sorrow is all that you'll know"
She whispers these lies and she tries, and she tries
But only One sits on the throne
