lyrics

conditional
oppositional
your love was never free
so afraid
I tried to change
but I never could succeed

I told you things
I shared my dreams
I believed you were my friend
but you tortured my trust
turned my faith to dust
left behind a heart that would not mend

fact or fiction
truth or lie
you move through my life casting doubt
try to replay
memories decayed
doubting myself from the inside out

accusations
confrontations
stories made from the air
were you pitching a line
in my mind
to see what you'd find there?

when I called you out
you spread more doubt
denying what you'd said
left me feeling crazy
was my memory that hazy?
the remembered words just in my head?

fact or fiction
truth or lie
you move through my life casting doubt
lost my way
memories decayed
doubting myself from the inside out

your words confused
there was no escape
no control for me
deny, deny
but I still survived
a twisted love's parolee

fact or fiction
truth or lie
you move through my life casting doubt
love betrayed
memories decayed
doubting myself from the inside out
doubting myself from the inside out
