Beating Up Dead Horses

 
So you want to beat this dead horse till youíre all hoarse?  
Go ahead and be my guest  
I thought this case was closed but I guess your forgot soÖ  
Get it off your chest  

again †
†† and †
†† † †again  

I mean itís exhausting watching you go around in circles  
Let alone the isolation, itís becoming quite the predicament
Youíre slowly putting yourself in loneliness unknowingly  
And when you find all the emptiness itíll be your detriment

Perhaps youíre not ready to let go of the hate and hurt  
Itís as if it gives you strength or maybe some kind of purpose  
As the years fly by leaving you behind life wonít be so kind  
Like a blank canvass when the art never made it to the surface  

I pray and hope that one day you learn to see beyond yourself  
Accept what the universe offers along with all the unknowns †
But if you want to spend your time and energy on old things  
Iíll just wait here quietly and watch you pulverize the bones
