2.1 You were depressed, you were really messed up, 
    You know I understand.
    But why did you not talk to me? 
    Why didn't you help me prepare for the nightmare?
2.2 Once it ended, I mended myself. 
    But it keeps falling back down off the shelves in my head.
    A twinge of pain now, a shudder of disgust. 
    As I shield my eyes from my own memory.

3.1 You took a vacation into oblivion. 
    You were so low and I felt like I didn't know you.
3.2 I knew all about your plans, I really did understand. 
    But you didn't let me know I wasn't invited to go.

   I watched in desperation as you stumbled before my eyes
   She needs beer, she doesn't need me, I finally realized
   My anger and pain in all your fun, you couldn't recognize
   I stopped caring long before you started to cry
