Between A Stone and A Hard Heart

Am I caught between a stone and a hard heart?
As we develop the pictures of our lives
Seeking for a quick fix as we go back and restart
To gain back the ground forfeit for knives
What betrayal of trust but for the wounds of honesty?
When faithfully afflicted of a friend
Can we love the devils out of ourselves?
Will time soothe what otherwise these words won't mend?
Off color remarks, something in me sparks
Lost for reactions and backtracking replies
I'm trying to get to the bottom of the truth
But I'm still working through the sickness of these lies
Rid my heart the rage within
Cure my mind the enticement if its sin
Going in circles, sabotage and start over again
We are more than our impulses and the appetite of skin
We are all of us mirrors that shatter at the sight of ourselves
Shards of a common and broken reflection
Trying to find the ways we fit
Seeing all things partial to our own perception
Rebuild the breakdown
And refine where it is we want to be
I don't want to lose us for the tension
Don't take your frustration out on me...
