This Grudge

14 years 30 minutes 15 seconds I've held this grudge

11 songs 4 full journals, thoughts of punishment I've expended


Not in contact not a letter such communication telepathic

You've been cilified, used as fodder, you deserve a piece of every record


But who's it hurting now?

Who's the one that's stuck?

Who's it torturing now, with an antique knot in her stomach


I want to be big and let go of this grudge that's grown old

All this time I've not known how to rest this bygone

I want to be soft and resolved clean of slate and released

I want to forgive for the both of us


Like an abandoned house dusty-coverd furniture still intact

If I visit it now, do I simply re-live it somehow gratuitous

But who's still aching now?

Who's tired of her own voice?

Who's it weighing down with no gift from time of said healing


I want to be big and let go of this grudge that's grown old

All this time I've not known how to rest this bygone

I want to be soft and resolved clean of slate and released

I want to forgive for the both of us


Maybe as I cut the cord veils will lift from my eyes

Maybe as I lay this to rest dead weight off my shoulders will rise


Here I sit, much determined ever ill-equipped to draw this curtain

How this has entertained, validated and has served me greatly ever the victim


But who's done whining now?

Who's ready to put down

This load I've carried longer than I had cared to remember


I want to be big and let go of this grudge that's grown old

For the life of me I've not known how to rest this bygone

I want to be soft and resolved clean of slate and released

I want to forgive for the both of us
