Leave in silence

I’ve told myself so many times before
But this time I think I mean it for sure,
We have reached a full stop,
Nothing’s going to stop save us from the big drop.

Reached our natural conclusion,
Outlived the illusion,
I hate being in these situations
That call for diplomatic relations.
If I only knew the answer,
Or I thought we had a chance,
Or I could stop this,
I would stop this thing
From spreading like a cancer.

What can I say,
I don’t want to play any more.
What can I say,
I’m heading for the door.
I can’t stand this emotional violence.
Leave in silence
Leave in silence.

We’ve been running round in circles all year,
Doing this and that and getting nowhere.
This will be the last time,
I think I said that last time.

If I only had potion,
Some magical lotion,
That could stop this,
I would set the wheels in motion.
