My friends were hurt
And I did nothing
To protect them

And so I hurt myself
Yelling at myself
All the things I should have done

I wounded myself
So I could suffer too

I told myself
It was for them
That I was helping

I made it all about me

See how good I am?
See how my suffering saves you?

See how I appear
Putting myself in
Every single line

Instead of getting to work
