Awaiting on a friend

With their motives out of balance
on the edge of self-reliance
to the bounds of your defiance
they all do use you for what they choose for you.
And by the means of your submission
and with all your reassurance,
can't they see just 'cause it hurts
while not deceiving it does not free you?
And through their methods of worship
they've been led to believe
that their roles reflect a purpose in your needs.
With their empty thoughts
and false securities
through your tired blank emotions they can't hear or see
But don't just sit like you've been taken by some hard love scene
'cause you let loose of all your secrets long ago.
And I stopped living for the sake of some dreams
while you're just waiting for a friend to show,
well, don't you know?

With your harsh ideals as subject
in the rage of your dissension
as their aim to just resent you
becomes the meaning of the lives they're leading.
And their desires all turn sour
as their vices cross your virtues
and they find there's some great need
to hold you down to get what they came for.
And with their images of love
lying broken at their feet
as a token to the scars you've had to bear.
By the words you'd spoken
you would have thought they would have seen
that it's not just what you lose that makes you care or feel.
But don't just sit like you've been taken by some hard love scene
'cause you let loose of all your secrets long ago.
And I stopped living for the sake of some dream
while you're just waiting for a friend to show,
well, don't you know?

With your passion speaking to you
in a voice you still remember,
just the sole surviving factor
to what you once were after but now there's no laughter.
And within his sleepless eyes
you see a love you claim so moving
though at your weakest he's abusing
you still do cling to what you're both lacking.
And he's been driven by seduction
from his vast beliefs
to where one finds there might be more to be redeemed.
And as he conflicts his motives
with your dire needs
his heart begins to wither as he bleeds on you.
But don't just sit like you've been taken by some hard love scene
'cause you let loose of all your secrets long ago.
And I stopped living for the sake of some dream
while you're just waiting for a friend to show,
well, don't you know?

Now, with your future as the subject
seems your conversation's fading
as is the love you've tried relating
along with the purpose of what you've been saying.
And though your destiny's not fleeting
seems you're drawn by this attraction
or is it just one more reaction
to how you've come through your mighty tongue.
And when you met them in the evening
they were all quite intrigued
by the things that all heard you say.
And even with their constant yawning
by the break of day,
by their reasons of insanity they still prey on you.
But don't just sit like you've been taken by some hard love scene
'cause you let loose of all your secrets long ago.
And I stopped living for the sake of your dreams
while you're just waiting for some friend to show,
well, don't you know
