My life’s a dichotomy
Pure business is what they see
Hair slicked back
Professional, hot shit
Smiling proud, motherfucker
Look at my doctorate!

Charming sociopath
I’ll grin like you’ve never seen before
“It was a pleasure talking to you,” she’ll tell me

And in my head, I’m fucking screaming
I’m dancing with devils and entertaining ghosts
Tempering and instigating demons with liquor in a paradox I’ve yet to understand
Engendering masochistic tendencies
Because I deserve no better
