words and music by Richard Bruxvoort Colligan.


Well, you stood up before the judge and you lied to hurt me
After all these years, I can't believe you'd burn me
You repaid my honest love with a pure betrayal
Where was your freaking head? Guess your conscience failed

May you be hounded ev'ry day by a cruel accuser
May your friends be few and may your days be fewer
Lose your house and lose your job, up to here in debt
Strangers come and threaten you and steal what's left
May no one show you mercy as your life is in a full-tilt spin
You're fond of a good curse, so have a taste of your own medicine

Maybe I'll never understand why you said all that hate
I've been so enraged, I can't see straight
I can scarcely now believe what you did was real
I just want your life to hurt and then disappear
May no one give you comfort as you're crying in the dark alone
You never blessed, so may you never get a blessing for your own

So there I said-- it oh my God, that’s my heartbreak talking
All my ugly thoughts I'd never ever act on
There's a lot of letting go til this poison's gone
God, my one and only prayer: help me move on
