Survivor’s Guilt

If there are any hatchets left in the trees
Let’s pull ‘em out and bury ‘em between our knees
Even though when it comes to fights, you and I have a fortune
I sold all my grandma’s jewelry to pay for your abortion

Now I’ve got survivor’s guilt

I need to symbolize a change so I get a tattoo
I choose a cross and anchor instead of a picture of you
When dolls made out of rags are so in fashion
The cloth will cut and sew itself with perverse passion

Now I’ve got survivor’s guilt
From tearing down what we built

You burn yourself with cigarettes and claim you’re practicing for hell
I let you put one out on me and imagine the hands you’ve been dealt
But that don’t mean you get to use those hands to bruise my eyes
Neither one of us will stay clean until we are covered in flies
