If your heart could see, if your heart could feel.
You've shielded your feelings, with armories of steel.
Let someone else get into your head, let your
Mind be free, open up to me.
Paint the picture memory takes. Share your
Burdens with your loved ones. Catergorizing
Emotions kept up on the shelf, that's
Buckling under, alcoholic pressure.
Self-enlisted troops marching up against you,
Now there's no erasing, emotional scars. Children
Don't request to become a punching bag.
Teach the family to walk a narrow line.
Don't look back at what you left behind,
Once again a bachelor undefined. Someday
I'll see your swollen wet pupils, and take a mental photo.
A shaky checkered past I see, hiding under
Your blanket of guilt. Shadowboxing
With the pain that was your double life,
The sin that engulfed your marriage.
