Album
Name of Song: You can’t forget yourself

Habits of the people,
You know, the ones you use,
Forgetting YOU the best,
Gosh, talk about abuse. 

Self abuse is so catching,
Agreed by everyone,
Asserting we are tough
until we feel no one. 


Chorus
Forgetting yourself forever,
It seems our way of life,
Putting self behind self
as we make our own strife.  
You can’t forget yourself,
Except when it means YOU,
Forgetting just yourself,
They say the kinder thing to do.

Many will deny this,
But they’re doing it the most,
Like a very hidden virus
that destroys YOU the host.
