Bad Pennies

With the Punches

You just can’t tell me now
that you never realized
there was always something wrong
with the way you treat everyone

the simple fact remains
you’re a liar and a fake
it took me too long to say
but we’re better off without you

I bet you thought it was a secret
and that no one would ever hear
about the things you said and did
when our backs were turned away

You live a life of idle threats
leaving holes in bedroom walls
you should have figured this out for yourself
and how many chances did you think you’d get
and where do you get off
so let the truth be told, we’ve had enough, but not 
giving up

So tell me once again
how much smarter you are than
every person you’ve ever met
how come you couldn’t see this coming

it was the blatant disrespect
to hide a lack of confidence
it was the ego you couldn’t check
some how you didn’t see this coming

Accept this as a fight you just can’t win
Maybe the lesson that finally sinks in
