Like snake you slither
Into my life
And you smile so genuinely
I almost believe the lies
That fall freely from your lips
Your act of innocence is so convincing
That I am almost fooled
Into believing that you care
But when I look into your eyes
I see the real you
That wants to steal my soul
To display on your mantle
Just another one of your trophies
Just another one of your victims
I most definitely will not be
“I Almost Believed Your Lies” was inspired by life I guess. We all have some experiences with narcissists and narcissism. At least that’s what I believe. It’s just that some of us are aware of it and some aren’t. And some of us are unlucky enough to become longterm victims of narcissists while others are lucky enough to only be side characters in their plots.
“I Almost Believed Your Lies” is about narcissism and the way in which narcissists act. They will tell you a million sweet lies just to get you to do what they want. And I have had the displeasure of experiencing people like that. And I’ve also fallen prey to them sometimes. But over time you learn. You learn to really see people for who they are and not fall for the ones that are only trying to use you.
