It hangs around my neck
Reminding me what I owe its giver
Bumping my breastbone
Arrogant in its glitter
I want to take it off
Reminds me I'm a fool
The hateful jewel
The hateful jewel
My hands feel forced to hold it
Pull and twist the cord
The pendant stings my skin
My fingers and my neck are sore
I wish it back inside the box
I wish it locked
I wish it locked
I wish I never saw its cool smooth roundness
Never touched it
Didn't put it on
It's presence haunts me
A Ghoul
The hateful jewel
The hateful jewel
