Pretty Lies

by, Cassandra

Well, excuse me for wanting more
Then this waste of breath ya'll call life
I know that there is something more
Waiting around the bend of this next lie
I want to taste the difference when there's
No one else there to hold my hand
I need to face the world unknown
And find a place I can call my own
Because you keep showing me
Everything I don't want to be
And I can't tell you why I need
To have something that you've never seen
I need something that's only mine
And something you haven't tainted
With all your oh so pretty lies…
