Where My Loyalties Lie

They all think my loyalties lie with them

Even though I’ve never said anything, I’m still on their side

I’ll keep my thoughts to myself

Let them believe my silences mean whatever they decide

They say I'm nice

They call me good

And I don't think I can bring myself

To tell them the truth

I keep company with dangerous men

Who taught me everything I know

I'll slit your throat before you see it coming

Without an ounce of remorse

I write poems dripping in blood

Yours not mine

And I think about killing my enemies

Only all the time

I feel myself grow more nihilistic everyday

I look at everything, and I’m just…done

I'm not saying I want the world to burn

I just won't stand in the way of the one who does
