lyrics

What’s with this whining
That your feelings are hurt
When you’re simply just a victim
Of your own foolish thoughts

With every person
That you hunt down to blame
You just strengthen your belief
That you’ll never be safe

You say they need to
Treat you just as you want
Yet they’ll continue
To give just what they’ve got

It’s not
Their fault

We all may eventually face
The harsher side of sticks and stones
But when it comes to words
Our false beliefs inflict the wounds

If you’re still wrestling
With the ghosts from the past
Please know that their destruction’s
Solely in your grasp

And if you choose
To ignore this fact
You’ll just keep pulling the trigger
Your neurosis holds in tact

You say they need to
Treat you just as you want
Yet they’ll continue
To give just what they’ve got

It’s not
Their fault

We all may eventually face
The harsher side of sticks and stones
But when it comes to words
Our false beliefs inflict the wounds
