In Your Shadow

from by Mopey



some of us lead
some of us follow
baby i'm the tail
that you swallow

in your shadow
under your wing
your protective hand
is strangling me

i can abase myself
for your entertainment
and you can condescend
cause that's the meaning of friendship

it's not your approval that i seek
it's your disdain i crave
confirmation of my condemnation
i'm not looking to be saved

i can live through you
you can die through me
a mutual exchange
in parasitic sycophanty

like conjoined twins who share a heart
only one of us can survive
once i've smothered you with my sickening need
you'll be rotting while i thrive
