A Real Victim

.
I feel my tongue has been cut
brown drowning strawberry blonde
you don’t dare admit guilt
for what you’ve done
.
I feel my fingers dropping off
flesh deepening to hard blue
all the things I’m thinking of
I wanna blame you
.
oh all the things I wish to disappear
.
so you think you’re a victim?
so you think you’re enslaved?
I’ll show you victim
when there’s no escape
.
I feel my legs won’t take me from
all the situations you put me in
all the disasters you seem to get in
well it’s not too late to come undone
it’s not too late, just blame someone
you know you’re the faultless one
.
oh all the times I wish to disappear
.
so you think you’re a victim?
you think you’re enslaved?
I’ll show you victim
when there’s no escape
yeah you know you’ve got the time
and how you’ve tried to change
that victim in the mirror
won’t go away, go away
I’ll show you a victim
of a whole other make
.
I feel my mind is far away
somewhere fighting dragons or you
you don’t dare admit defeat
though it’s strangled you
.
oh all the times I wish you’d disappear
.
so you think you’re a victim?
so you think you’re enslaved?
I’ll show you victim
borne from mistake
no you’re no more victim
than a fire-friendly fake
I’ll show you victim
when your freedom’s at stake
when you can open your mouth
but your speech bubble’s blank
oh I’ll show you victim
to show what you take
what you berate
what you create
all you erase
when you misplace
all the blame
and the victim’s name
so I’ll show you victim
and you’ll never be the same
again
