Memory: I had no way to prepare for the attack that came, and when it was over, I chose a side. Years later and I can still hear her dignity shatter in his cold hands.

Lesson: Truth in the wrong hands is a weapon. Trust, but remember.


I thought that we were safe in the hideout
I didn't know that you were feeling from the inside-out
That me in tiny shorts outweighed
My oblivious display
Of what I was afraid to say
To anyone else then
Anyone else then

I thought that we had trust in our pockets
I didn't think we'd find an easy way to unlock it
That years of close activity
And raucous incivility
And knowing what you knew of me
Could shatter that way, but
Shatter that way, but

He whispered in your ear
The cruelest lies that you could hear
Pulled the rug out under
When he left you like the plunder he discards
With your dignity in shards
Dignity in shards (irretrievable)

I thought you'd side with me over a stranger
I didn't think you'd make me feel like we were in danger
But you unleashed the hurricane
And soaked me with your acid rain
Till it blew out the way it came

And we were irretrievable
We were irretrievable

I stood still in the torrent of your words
That stuck to my skin
And I stood still in the torrent of your words
That stuck to my skin

We were irretrievable
We were irretrievable

When the storm was over
And the truth had been picked clean
We were irretrievable
We were irretrievable
