A textful of platitudes
sealed with a generous
X and a smiley face
lady's no substitute
for a night in your arms

and charming as your idiosyncratic line
in bullshit is
I won't stick around too long
with only this

love without loving that
you take without making.
You fake that you're breaking
and every day
it's the same old head-games
as you puppet-string my veins.
So goodbye.

Save your stage-tears
for someone who cares.
You're a mess at the best of times
and this isn't one

now I'm gone.
