Sauce For The Goose (Rough Justice)

1    Yes, I ran away!
      It was so close to killing me.
      I couldn't take the pain,
      But you think I should have let it end me.

               What kind of justice
                                 is without trial?
               What kind of friend
                                 fights on the other side?
               What kind of life?

2    And I couldn't cope!
      It was only me that was breaking.
      And he didn't help,
      But I should remember that he has feelings too.

3    I was on my own.
      It was me that said you should help him.
      Then you were gone,
      But I should shut up incase I hurt him now.

4    Yes I know I'm not the only one,
      But you say that to people you've been spending your time with!
      You got it wrong,
      But I shouldn't shout, or say wild words about it now.
