prepare for betrayal

I now see through the facade of people
pretending to be loyal
but when a price is involved
well then prepare for betrayal

I love you. they say,
but when someone better than you comes along
it's a treachery
that in the matter of a second
 you become a faint empty memory
a used up accessory
with the words "you never mattered to me"
inscribed on it
left on a dirt road
while people walk by and say what a pity
and laugh at your former glory

now you're all alone, your heart shattered and rusted
all because you trusted
so like I said
I now see through the facade of people
pretending to be loyal
but when a price is involved
well then prepare for betrayal
