Angry Conscience

Inside your head and all through your mind
There’s a broken dream that you left behind

It comes in and goes out, but it never leaves
You hide and you struggle, you suffer and grieve

Face to face, but you’re looking away
Pretending it’s night when it’s damn well the day

Refusing to go back because maybe it hurts
You dig yourself deeper, just making it worse

Accidents, apologies, regrets and mistakes
All the memories that made your heart ache

Are left there to live and dwell in your head
While they eat you alive and throw you up dead

But you’re stubborn and still and you won’t even talk
You just gaze at the stars and sneer at the clock

Like you have all the time a man possibly could
To tell her you love her, like you probably should
