    Sober from the poison of your lies
    I find rehabilitation in the truth
    Please I can’t take another fake smile
    Don’t need another fix
    Your words are like the poison my body is trying to rid
    It’s the complexity
    Of your reality
    That has me all twisted inside
    Once I get you out of my system I will be just fine
    I will live a life I am proud to call mine
    I have listened to your lies for the very last time
    You utter words of solace
    Yet you extend no grace
    Everything said is behind my back
    There is nothing said to my face
    I thought lying was a sin
    Oh well
    I also thought you were my friend
