why can’t they see?

why cant they see
the frailties in mi,
when they look in my eyes
the masks of disguise?

do they really not care,
act like i’m not there.

are they really that bold
with the lies i’ve been told?

why cant they see
they’re hurting mi?

they use & abuse
as they take & they’re fake-
these guys with their lies
why can’t they see
what they’re doing to mi?

these games that they play
as they walk away
why can’t they see
(the) pain it causes mi?

have they no heart
as i fall apart?

why can’t they see-
the frailties in mi?
