"If for honesty

You want apologies

I don't sympathize

If for kindness

You substitute blindness

Please open your eyes"

Depeche Mode, "Condemnation"


You wish you knew why he looked at you that way

with a mixture of


Even though you know the "pity"

is empathy

& really, there's something much more

between you two

Ah, you know exactly how to

f-i-x things

Break him down

Tear him apart

Leave scars that he won't show anyone but


Because when it all comes down to it, you just

want someone as damaged as you

&& he ought to learn

Thanks for reading, and please review!
