Rusted Away

Standard

Encrusted, Rusted
Someone I should have trusted
Someone I should have trusted
Gave in, Caved in
Now price is being paid
Should have mistrusted
Should have mistrusted
Just looked the other way
Really, the price to pay
For looking the other way
 
Encrusted, Rusted
Most times I should just leave
Most times I should just leave
Held out, hoped out
Now price is being paid
Should have mistrusted
Should have mistrusted
Not enough hours in the day
Too much not conveyed
Nothing left; so much to say
 
Encrusted, Rusted
Everything tumbling down
Everything tumbling down
Fanned out, Maxed out
Now price is being paid
Should have mistrusted
Should have mistrusted
Overwhelmed, feet of clay
Obligated, it does weigh
Obfuscate, betray

  1. Some lessons just need to be learnt the hard way. I guess it’s never too late…or so we hope. I really enjoyed this one Stuart!

  2. Lyrics? 🙂 I think we tend to beat ourselves up when we are betrayed, as though it is our fault. But while we may ignore or close our eyes to warning signs, in the end the responsibility lies solely with the one whose actions called the grief.

  3. while I like the form or flow, I am not sure I really get the meaning in this piece. Did “you” trust someone you shouldn’t have, or not trust someone you should have? Did that person betray you? Maybe too cerebral for me.
