Bad Guy

"I also represent any of the fears in you're heart that you're holding within
I'm the nightmare you're living now that you're hoping will end
I'm the pain that you bleed with each stroke of a pen
Perfect time to look back on the road that you've been
Roaming in hopelessness, your progress is thin
You realize all of this is approaching it's end
But you refuse to believe that it's over, here we go all over again"

I'm in that ring now, and the anger is building
Sat in the corner, feels like I've been battered a million
And the voice in my head is another attack while I'm reeling
It's raps with an aura, "I am your lack of a conscience
That's been scarred, burnt and damaged by the rappers you follow
The ones you can't manage to withdraw from, so now your character follows
I'm a culmination of every one of the fractures you're causing
In the minds and hearts of the girls who happen to fall for you

I am every single doubt that you battle and conflict with
To target your confidence, yeah I'm strangling and starving it
That stab in your heart when you feel you're lacking in competence
I'm that bitter pill - you have been asking for all of this
From former friends to women, all that carnage you left
What's that they say about karma? Now you're acknowledging it
I am that "Captain Imbalance" on every ship you hop on but it's
A kamikaze voyage before you even start with the bliss

I'm that master that you're slaving for, the prison that has you trapped like a hostage
The voice of guilt that rings after you've bottled it
I'm that noxiousness you are that you cannot acknowledge
I represent everything you take for granted and disregard
Everything you had but then lost, that you abandoned and swapped
And as you waste away with the vultures demanding your carcass
These words will echo til your eardrums have shattered and demolished
Hope they'll remember you as more than just a canvas of darkness"
