out through within

hate is self-defeating
resentment is demeaning
contempt sends you reeling
losing all sense of feeling

its the hurt of knowing their pain
watching them fall again and again
cause you know you've done the same things
you know every coming one of the stings

wanting to get it all out of my head
thinking about it all too much
making one of those mistakes as i speak
and i hold on to it nonetheless

i'm self-defeating
i am demeaning
i send me reeling
i've lost my sense of feeling
i do regress
i do come back again
but that isn't me
