It sidles up beside you,
It whispers in your ear,
It says that you deserve better,
It talks like God won’t hear.

Resentment –  don’t it make you feel so good.
It lets you think more of yourself than you should

It started long ago
In Lucifer’s heart
He said, “I’m so important,
I will be just like God.”

Resentment – don’t it make you feel so good
It tells you that you’re the one who should be God.

Resentment makes you bitter
Resentment makes you mean
It makes you think your problems
Are the worst the world has seen.

Resentment – when it’s coming, better run and hide
Resentment: It will eat you up on the inside.
