Do you remember the time?

Do you remember the time...  
‘cause, yeah, I do    
I remember the time    
I remember the violence    
I remember my blood    
in the bathroom sink    
We are the lies we tell    
your violence    
my silence    
with one foot out the door    
Do you remember the time...    
we talked of guns and murder    
and garden beds    
soaked in blood    
‘cause I remember the time    
I remember the lies    
I remember the hope    
placed in imaginary religions    
and the way it felt    
to lust for a vengeance    
that wasn't even mine    
Do you remember the promises?    
that you'd keep me safe    
I remember the threats    
I remember the bribes    
I remember the fear    
that I was going to die    
I remember your weakness    
In muttered words    
that didn't hit like a fist    
this time
when I found the courage    
to crawl out the door    
when fate held your gaze    
I remember all the words    
to our charade    
your self-righteous violence    
and my feigned facade    
the one that said    
I'd never have the courage    
to leave    
a facade that you believed    
Do you remember the time...    
cause, yeah, I do    
I remember the time...
