I stay away

From the lies

From the hate

From wickedness 

The kind you show


I avoid you 

Avoid your evil

Avoid your pain 

Avoid your abuse

Avoid your ugliness 

The kind you are


Just praying for a morning 

When I can get in and drive away

Praying for a new day

When your poison is free from my veins


I stay away

When I’m there

When I’m not

When you speak

When you move 

The way you echo in my brain 


Just praying for a morning 

When I can get in and drive away

Praying for a new day

When your poison is free from my veins
