Stay A While

All those affirmations–you should write a book;
think about all those double standards you overlooked.
How with just one look, you know someone else’s life
like you know the ins/outs of them; put ‘em under the knife.

Do you hear yourself?
Do you hear yourself?

Stay awhile
and hear me out.
I swear it’ll all make sense
if you stick around.

And the feathers fall, like you shot a dove in the heart.
“Blood on a canvas is such an underdone art.”
You said you’re sending a message to everyone who hunts
without even dreaming about the lows you’ve kissed
or where you’ve sunk.

Can you see yourself?
Can you see yourself?

Stay your tongue
and slay your creeds.
You’re the seed feeding the evil
against which you so feverishly preach…

So stay awhile
and hear me out.
I swear it’ll all make sense
if you just turn it around.
