Artificial Ignorance

lyrics

I’m not gonna let you screw me over one more time

I know I can be bitter
And you think I should know better but
I’m only human

And I’m not the type to hold a grudge
But some things I can’t let budge
Because I’m only human

Did you just not know or even care?
Think I don’t see through your cold icy stare
And as soon as my back’s turned I bet you’re laughing

I’m not gonna let you screw me over one more time
Wish I could see through every one of your infuriating lies
Don’t try to be intelligent
Saying this was just an accident
All of my patience’s spent for your
Artificial ignorance

Maybe it was an honest mistake
How did things escalate?
I guess you’re just like me; and I’m only human

And maybe I could forgive and forget
But I’m just not ready to do that yet because
I’m only human

Fool me once; that’s shame on you
Fool me twice; that’s shame on me
And don’t expect me to give you another chance

I’m not gonna let you screw me over one more time
Wish I could see through every one of your infuriating lies
Don’t try to be intelligent
Saying this was just an accident
All of my patience’s spent for your
Artificial ignorance

You keep raising red flags
I’ve only got white ones to fly
I guess that’s probably why I’m treated like a doormat

And I try to see the best in people
But I guess you’re just pure evil
And maybe I’d sleep better if I never had to think of you again

I’m not gonna let you screw me over one more time
Wish I could see through every one of your infuriating lies
Don’t try to be intelligent
Saying this was just an accident
All of my patience’s spent for your
Artificial ignorance
Artificial ignorance

I’m not gonna let myself get screwed over another time
Until the next one comes along and I naively say “I’ll try”
I swear this happens every time
Why do I keep turning a blind eye?
I’ve gotta get over my
Artificial ignorance
