Name of Song: Hooks

Hooks,
Their way to get a hold,
Their way to keep you on their leash,
A twisted sort of bold.

Their weakness is no loving,
They simply can’t give love,
Instead they force it out somehow,
A painful show, sort of.

Their hooks are never ending,
That’s all they know to do,
You think there must be something else,
They just pretend their love for you.

Chorus
So sad they are, so sad,
And they can’t feel any love,
Instead they use their lies and cheat,
To convince they’re good, sort of.
So sad they are, so sad,
And they can’t feel any love,
Instead they use their lies and cheat,
To convince they’re good, sort of.

They’ve been around forever,
They never go away,
They need someone to hook into,
To confuse them in their way.

They’re unbelievably subtle,
They use your words to hook,
They use your body and your mind,
They have their own playbook.

Chorus
So sad they are, so sad,
And they can’t feel any love,
Instead they use their lies and cheat,
To convince they’re good, sort of.
So sad they are, so sad,
And they can’t feel any love,
Instead they use their lies and cheat,
To convince they’re good, sort of.

You never see them coming,
Unless you know to look,
They quietly slide their spike within,
They use these mental hooks.

Using your own kindness,
They introvert then strike,
You never see them coming,
So hidden are their spikes.

Chorus
So sad they are, so sad,
And they can’t feel any love,
Instead they use their lies and cheat,
To convince they’re good, sort of.
So sad they are, so sad,
And they can’t feel any love,
Instead they use their lies and cheat,
To convince they’re good, sort of.

You may have met these beings,
And fell into their hole,
Just separate out from all their hooks,
And regain your stolen soul.

You may have met these beings,
And fell into their hole,
Just separate out from all their hooks,
And regain your stolen soul.
