lyrics

It's been more than ten months since last we spoke
I'm trying to start over with new folks
I've moved onto new girls in new places
but I'm still defined by our failed relations
All the things you did still haunt me
And time has healed some wounds, but I'm flawed, see?
I know I'm not the first here to feel betrayed
But to love again I must relieve this burdensome weight

The fire in my belly's still fueled by anger and hate
Try as I may to uplift it just ends up feeling fake
Only a year and a half after we went and looked at a house
Talk of forever and future plans feels foolish now

I forged a whole new identity
out of the monster you made me

And I believe you didn't want to hurt me
But knowing that you did didn't change a thing
I'd offer my self-satisfied forgiveness
But you forgave yourself first, you skipped a step!
And sure I want closure and to put this to rest
I don't care about your feelings or what happens next
'Cause forgiveness without remorse is just letting go
and I don't want to forget, I want to learn and grow

I fear the only thing that will make my debt feel repaid
is knowing that karma revisited you in spades
and if that's how the universe chooses to vindicate
the only lesson I'll have learned is that being vindictive pays

I forged a whole new identity
out of the monster you made me
no matter who has the last laugh, you created me
and we all know that means you can destroy me
