A deathbed promise - Puppeteer

Well hello puppeteer
What fun games we'll play today
You be the tortured soul
I'll be an object in the way
If your illness is your excuse
For the way that you behave
Know I'm just like you
The black dog follows me too

Though I can't seem to spare your attention
Tangled up by your expectations
Hung up, pushed to the side
Trimmed face, but we're dead inside
Your mistakes are the gasoline
That flood my dependency
I'll light a match just to draw your eyes
Now watch me ignite

So yank me around, yank me around
Tie me down, tie me down
Then when I finally stand up for myself
In the midst of everything
You walk out


The scenes always change
But my place remains the same
In the truth you try not to see
And the only one left is me
I singed the strings and lost control
I'm going to watch it all unfold
No turning back now
This is the way
Things will have to stay

So yank me around, yank me around
Tie me down, tie me down
Then when I finally stand up for myself
In the midst of everything
You walk out

All I wanted was you to see me
Burning bright
Instead you up and left us
Without a fight
So you just throw me away
Just like the coward you portray
But stand still because here's the page turner
I'm putting you on the back burner
And it will

Tear you apart, tear you apart
Little remorse from your work of art
So don't even try to stand up for yourself
In the midst of everything
I'll feed you to the sharks
