I heroically
Dance out the wreckage
You caused in me
While you deny everything

Crazy making
On top of devastating

You’re more concerned
About covering your ass
Than taking moral inventory
Recognizing your hypocrisy
And criminal behavior
Taking accountability
And making amends

Damage piled upon damage
Your refusal to deal with it
Means that I have to
More than twofold
Given the compounding effect

But I don’t have time
To stop and think about it really
About all the expense you caused me
Physically emotionally financially

Because the clock is ticking
And you don’t get
Any more of what I have in this Life

So I heroically
Dance out the wreckage
You caused in me
