Through the Debris

I masked the hurt with anger and looked for revenge in the most spiteful way,
Not knowing that from that day forward everything would completely change,†
And in some strange way I didnít grasp the damage it would do to all of us,†
You grew angrier and I somehow found my strength buried under all the rubble.†
But first I had to dig through all the debris, the guilt, the everlasting shame,†
Taking all the blame because it didnít really matter who set it off at first,†
Because your verse will always be different than mine, I know I did wrong,†
But as long as I had my baby boy, even though I was lost I still had hope.†
I didnít want you back,†
How could I? I wouldnít want myself back if I had done that to me,†
And no matter how you see it, I too was so hurt the way it all went down,†
Razed to the ground, we were a mess but those were the choices we made,†
Had I stayed, there was no telling how much worse it would have gotten.†
Maybe it was for the best, we had grown apart and my heart wasnít in it,†
It was my fault, I never should have started, I should have been more honest,†
I broke all those promises when I strayed away and brought your wrath,†
It was a bloodbath,†
But you knew me, I was that type of guy to help you build it and then destroy it.†
