Closure (Robot Song)

about

I wrote this several months after a breakup with a long-term partner. Through the years of that relationship I felt like I was a possession that belonged to him- I felt less like myself and more disconnected from my emotions. Only after opening up about the relationship to my therapist did I start understanding that I was being manipulated into ignoring my own needs and boundaries.

lyrics

I turned around and saw myself begging
I saw myself sobbing on my knees
Pleading my case, that yes, I still love you
But I have nothing left
I can't keep giving you these pieces of me
(giving you these pieces of me)

Closure is a fleeting victory
I remember pretty much everything
It's not fair It's not right
Every time that we'd fight
You got closure
You got sympathy

Then you're laying desperate and crying
And show a side you've never shown before
You throw your hands. You say that you're worthless
"I love you"
You won't get up until I join you on the floor

Closure is a fleeting victory
I remember pretty much everything
It's not fair It's not right
Every time that we'd fight
You got closure
You got sympathy

I turned around and saw myself seething
I saw myself wishing that I'd seen
The warnings and the patterns
All the flags and all the signs
None of this was healthy for me

You said
"When I'm gone
You will not think of me."
I said "Well you're wrong,
You still mean everything."

but It's been months
It's messed up
I processed your fuck ups
I got closure
And it means nothing.
