You had my heart in a choke hold
I was young but you had me feeling old
You closed my eyes and turned out the lights
you had me doing wrong, thinking I was living right
you held me hostage with a ransom I couldn’t pay
when I saw truth I looked the other way
You kept me up at night worrying about tomorrow
you brought me 20% joy and 80% of sorrow
you had me under your spell
you promised you’d catch me when I fell
but you dragged me to the ground
you left me while I drowned
I yelled but made no sound
I was lost but now I’m found.
Ode to sin.
