Irrational

There's no putting this simply
Starved for attention
Locked in a box of perfection
Tell me, am I selfish
For just wanting to be free?
And my fantasy ending
Might be your worst nightmare
So, of course
I know life's not fair

Hold your head up
This is only what you asked for
You'll get what you deserve
Hold your head high
And don't you even cry
You'll get what you deserve

Looking up from the bottom
Tears of blood
Caught by barbed wire
Hopelessly tangled around my heart
Thunder rolling in my veins
Here we go again
Choking, suffocating
Take a deep breath

And

Hold you head up
This is only what you asked for
You'll get what you deserve
Hold your head high
And don't you even cry
You'll get what you deserve

I only wish to understand
When I can't even feel
Twisting my hopes and making me sick
Will you check to see if I'm still here?

Inspirational tragedy
Motivational angst
Confusing love for sympathy
But in the end, there's no putting this simply

Oh, hold your head up
This is only what you asked for
You'll get what you deserve
Hold your head high
And don't you fucking cry
You'll get what you deserve

I only wish to understand
I just want what I deserve
I only wish to understand
I just want what I deserve
