Why must you awaken after a lovely day?
Can I not just have some time away?
You’re always with me, even if you’re sleeping
And when you stir, you have me weeping.
You set alight to my leg and laugh at my screams
Then crush my knee... And my hopes, and my dreams.
Why must you stab me and linger too long?
Can’t you just fuck off so I can finish my song?
You came out of nowhere, now you live here rent-free
You’re more than a nuisance and you irritate me.
You wind me up so tight inside. Until I explode...
This, dear Pain, is your ode
