NO MORE WE

My rubber knife shouldn’t break skin 
But it’s strong enough to strike a nerve 
Am I like a madman who throws firebrands? 
Deceiving the neighbors to say I’m just joking? 

I don’t know why I believed 
That you couldn’t bleed, you couldn’t bleed 
There’s no more we 
It’s just you and me, just you and me 

I ate sweet words of whisperers 
They went down so smoothly like poison in honey 
Now there’s no more we; it’s just you and me 

I don’t know why I believed 
That you couldn’t bleed, you couldn’t bleed 
There’s no more we 
It’s just you and me, just you and me 

There’s a time to plant and a time to harvest 
Alone, I’ll be reaping what I’ve sown 

I don’t know why I believed 
That you couldn’t bleed, you couldn’t bleed 
There’s no more we 
It’s just you and me, just you and me 

No more we; it’s just you and me
