No Trust


Do you ever feel like there is no one you can trust?
Though talking to someone, you certainly must.
But you feel unsure, because you think they may tell,
And your secret will be heard by many others as well.
And do you ever feel like secrets are pointless?
If you can't trust anyone, isn't it hopeless?
I mean, what are they going to do with your info
Besides spread it around until the whole world knows?
I want to trust someone, so there's a person I can talk to,
But I can't find someone who's trust is true.
Now what am I supposed to do?
Just lay back and tell everything to you
So you can tell the world all about me?
Well let me tell you, I'll be very angry,
And maybe to give you what you deserve.
I'll make up rumors about you till it hurts.
