You Can’t Put That Cat Back In The Bag

You held it all in

You tried forgiveness

You tried embracing The Hate

You tried everything

That you could think of

 

You knew the hate

made you strong

You tried to turn it in to

A source of strength

You said as long as I 

Believe this

Nothing can go wrong

(Nothing can ever hurt me now)

 

You held on to the rage

Like it was the ember

Your life depended on

You nursed it

You coaxed it

Along

You needed that hatred

Because you

Believed that

It made you strong

 

You tried forgiveness

You cried yourself to sleep

Telling yourself

If I can

Just learn to forgive

Nothing

Can do me wrong

(You can’t hurt me now)

If I just

Look at the world

Through Sad

Puppy dog eyes

Nothing

Can hurt me now

 

But the world

Is a mean rotten place

Full of evil

Looking for a chance

To do you wrong

You’ve been bitten once

And fooled twice

And nothing else can beat it

So you chose to be strong

 

But then

Something happened

 

You let that cat

Out of the bag

And you tried

To sort things out

You let that cat

Out of the bag

You tried to talk about

What went so wrong

You let that cat

Out of the bag

And

Once that cat got out

You’ve been a mess

Ever since

When you used to be so strong

 

You can’t put that cat 

Back in the bag

And it’s time

To move on
