eyes wide open

eyes open
eyes wide open
so I can really see
the kind of person you are
how the first 50 years of your life
have taught you so little
how small a person's world can be
when they become blinded
by hatred and jealousy
I suppose I should be thankful
I don't have to spend any more time
trying to be nice to you
when a lot of the time I knew
you really wished you could have been
somewhere else
whenever I came to visit
now I'll never come to visit
and don't care if I'm no longer
welcome in your home
I'm tired of things the way they are
so done with pretending
we can move past all this
I know we can't move past all this
and isn't it better to know
ultimately it's always better to know
even if it breaks your heart at the time
