Settling a debt I didn’t owe

Settling for a seed that cannot grow

Settling to avoid a truth I know

Harsh is the light shining bright

Harsh is the darkness you have to fight

Harsh is the truth I already know

Poison seeping through my veins

Poison, invisible without a name 

Poison is the truth I painfully know

Settling is to choose and not to choose

Settling is the fear that made you lose

Settling is the truth I’ve always known
