pumped and puffed with so much pride

You've had enough and now you're through
With everyone you ever knew
Who didn't do what you want them to

Holding on to hate so tight
You're righteous and you're always right

Making lists of friends and foes
For every thought they ever chose
Paranoia grows and grows

Pumped and puffed with so much pride
Everyone must take your side

Every grievance needs a name
Where you can cast a heap of blame
Hiding from your inner shame

Your tender heart is hurt and scarred
Envy grows and dreams die hard
