“You Know the Price”

If you make a move, what are your expectations?
A pat scene so innocent at first
But when it hits the fan, would you claim good intentions
When the urge to save face ruins your word?

I watch again as promises repeat
Embolalia echoes thought to be sweet
But an awakened heart sees through the deceit

Actions have shattered the trifles that you dare say
Nothing else you have will allay
In the end you will pay
You don’t see the big picture, it does not behoove you
You’ve made your bed, true
But you knew the price

It’s all so clear, how you got here
In hindsight, you know the price

The lady doth protest, that is a given
And a man who doth the same
Erases all for that he has striven
I never blinked but the past has
Mapped out all that’s unforgiven

Listen to your words
Empty, absurd
We see through what’s blurred
But you knew the price

It’s all so clear, how you got here
In hindsight,
You know the price
