Name of Song: The Art of Disconnecting

Ooh, I shouldn’t be here,
What have I got myself into?
Ohhh, I don’t like him at all,
How do I leave without a scene?

The art of disconnecting,
Doing it without a trace,
Leaving without an upset,
Things I cannot face.

Stuck to earlier loving,
The scars are in my soul,
Those memories are good and bad though,
Leave me wondering am I still whole.

The art of disconnecting,
How do I leave without a trace?
How do I erase those past experiences?
Hoping to end them without a chase.

How do I stay within my own skin?
So I can move on to create anew,
Leaving what I cannot face now,
Till I can undo this bond of glue.

I know deep down I left myself there,
I know deep down, I’ve done it before,
I know deep down I can’t prevent myself,
From leaving me inside their door.

I cannot understand this liability,
When it takes over amid my loss,
Or it takes over when I can’t face things,
It is my nemesis, it becomes my boss.

Reactive urges that influence,
They’re for real, no matter how,
Disconnecting comes to mind,
An out for me right now.

To simply decide to separate out from,
Then a willingness to see it through,
I just keep facing my holy nemesis,
Until I see a future new.

The art of disconnecting,
Doing it without a trace,
Leaving without an upset,
Things I cannot face.

Stuck to earlier loving,
The scars are in my soul,
Those memories are good and bad though,
Leave me wondering am I still whole.

Reactive urges that influence,
They’re for real, no matter how,
Disconnecting comes to mind,
An out for me right now.

A simple decision to separate out from,
Then a willingness to see it through,
I just keep facing my holy nemesis,
Until I see a future new.
