A Rather Bloody Tale
By Gracie Allan
Ambition's Many Faces
Denial with a Side of Guilt
Though I am running to you
All our feelings deny, deny, denial, oh
I wanted to be a better brother, better son
Wanted to be a better adversary to the evil I have done
I have none to show to the one I love
But deny, deny, denial, oh" (Twenty One Pilots "Polarize"). Macbeth can't deal with the guilt of murdering Duncan, but he knows that he can't tell anyone, or he will be removed from the throne. When Duncan is found dead, Macbeth admits to killing the guards, but he says it was out of anger for them killing his king. Macbeth denies his part in the murder, and even goes as far as faking being in mourning for the king.
