Verse 1
Im not coming back
Im not gonna react
Im not doing shit for you
Im not sitting around
While youre tearing it down around us
Im not living a lie
While you swim in denial
Cause your already dead and gone
Youll leave me out on the curb
Just like everyone
Else before you

Chorus
Welcome to my world
Where everyone I ever need
Always ends up leaving me alone
Another lesson burned
And Im drowning in the ashes
Kicking
Screaming
Welcome to my world

Verse 2
I dont care what you think
Im not seeing a shrink
Im not doing this again
Im not another
Student or a mother
To take your shit out on
So lets see what you got
And lets see what youre not
And whatever else you pretend
Youve defended my intentions
Long enough

Bridge
So here I am again
In the middle of the end
The choice I wish Id made
I always make too late


. . .



Verse 1

Made the toast
Burned the eggs
Never got the hang of them
Just another other day

Caught the bus
Forgot the change
Looks like I’ll be late again
Hopefully they won’t complain

Chorus

My life’s so pitiful
Gimme one good reason why I shouldn’t end it all
If there’s a reason then I haven’t found it yet
And I tried every drug I find
Except maybe heroin and cyanide
But there’s a reason
I just can’t afford them yet
Oh, it’s another overdose.

Verse 2

Went to work
Saw you there
But you never seem to care for a single thing I say
I set my clock and went to sleep
This anxiety I’ll keep through another fucking day
Looks like that’s all today
I’m dying

Chorus 2

My life’s so pitiful
Gimme one good reason why I shouldn’t end it all
If there’s a reason then I haven’t found it yet
And I tried every drug I find
Except maybe heroin and cyanide
But there’s a reason
I just can’t afford them yet
Oh, it’s another overdose.

Break

My life’s so pitiful
Pitiful
Pitiful
Pitiful
Pitiful

Chorus

My life’s so pitiful
Gimme one good reason why I shouldn’t end it all
If there’s a reason then I haven’t found it yet
And I tried every drug I find
Except maybe heroin and cyanide
But there’s a reason
I just can’t afford them yet
My life’s so pitiful
My life’s so pitiful
My life’s so pitiful
I’m dying!

Tell me all your plans and I'll laugh back in your face
Preach me your religion if you're dumb enough to pray

I tried to make a change to get a better way
to make a little more money
I tried to get away to see if I could stay
and look what I became, honey

[Chorus]
What is it I'm after
Searching for disaster
Watching my whole life flash in front of my eyes
We've been given answers
Still we're walking cancers
Dressed up as a life

Get all your news from a corporate company
Trade in your opinon for a gallon of gasoline
Go!

I tried to get away to see if I could stay
And look what I became, honey

[Chorus]
What is it I'm after
Searching for disaster
Watching my whole life flash in front of my eyes
We've been given answers
Still we're walking cancers
Dressed up as a life
Dressed up as a life
Dressed up as a life

This life is a waste of life
This life...
Is a fucking lie!

[Chorus]
What is it I'm after
Searching for disaster
Watching my whole life flash in front of my eyes
We've been given answers
Still we're walking cancers
Dressed up as a life
Dressed up as a life
Dressed up as a life
Dressed up as...

I walk the line of the disappointed
I celebrate when I'm in pain
My heart and mind can be disjointed
I built a bed in this hole I made
I recognize that I'm damaged
I sympathize that you are too
But I wanna breathe without feelin' so self-conscious
But it's hard when the welt's starin' at you

Another piece of the puzzle, it doesn't fit
You throw your arms up, you're so damn sick of it
What are you working for
What are you searching for
Love
You won't be thinking of causes
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what you are paying for,
What you are praying for
Love

You join the line of the getting richer
You keep your face but it's movin' slow
You are defined by all that you have hoarded
But you're surprised it doesn't fill up the hole.

Another piece of the puzzle, it doesn't fit
You throw your arms up, you're so damn sick of it
What are you coping for

What are you hoping for
Love
You won't be thinking of causes
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what you are paying for,
What you are praying for
Love

I'll never be what I see on the tv screen
I just keep dreaming of what I'm never gonna be
I can't think of a better way to waste my time then try

Another piece of the puzzle, it doesn't fit
You throw your arms up, you're so damn sick of it
What are you hurtin' for
What are you searching for
Love love love love
You won't be thinking of causes
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what you are paying for,
What you are praying for
Love love love love

You won't be thinkin' of causes
You're on your death bed and dyin'
You'll only be thinkin' of what are you workin' for,
What are you waitin' for


. . .



Waiting for another line
Cause you throw them at me all the time
Gotta get away from all her lies
And I gotta get away from mine

Tell me where to go
When fate won't deliver
Cause I can't forgive her
When I let her know
This pain I've been living
Will her next collision be me

Brings situation down
And her temper's always on the rise
I'm living what I've seen before
Well I won't take this anymore
It's time to hold this to the light

Tell me where to go
When fate won't deliver
Cause I can't forgive her
When I let her know
This pain I've been living

Will her next collision be me

Cause her mental prison is not my decision
So I'm cutting my losses this time
I'm no longer living through her tunnel vision

Tell me where to go
When fate won't deliver
Cause I can't forgive her
When I let her know
This pain I've been living
Will her next collision be me

Gotta get away from
Gotta get away
Gotta get away this time

Tell me where to go
When fate won't deliver
Cause I can't forgive her
When I let her know
This pain I've been living
Will her next collision be me

Verse 1

I don't mind where you come from
As long as you come to me
But I don't like illusions I can't see
Them clearly
I don't care no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually what you'll do.
I don't mind
I don't care
As long as you're here

Chorus

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
And do it all over again
It's all the same

Verse 2

Hours slide and days go by
Till you decide to come
And in between it always seems too long
For certain
But I have the skill yeah I have the will
To breathe you in while I can
How ever long you stay is all that I am
I don't mind
I don't care
As long as you're here

Chorus

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
And do it all over again
It's always the same

Bridge

Wrong or right
Black or white
If I close my eyes its all the same
In my life the compromise
I close my eyes
Its all the same

Go ahead saying you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
And do it all over again
It's all the same

. . .



I've tried to balance these lives that we are living
You always feel justified but you never feel forgiving
I woke up one morning to find myself wrapped in the things I swore I'd never touch.
And here I am again trying to save what's left of you and I
So why aren't you satisfied?

I reached out, fell short
Now you're hurt, too many words
Breaking the silence
I felt it, bled it, screamed it,
It only gets worse
And it kills me watching me too angry for us to survive
I used too many words tonight

I tried to get it right
But I was just wastin' my time
'cause you never compromised when it came to us
We struggle and fall apart we build it back to static start
The endless accusations I can't believe we made it this far.

I reached out, fell short

Now you're hurt, too many words
Breaking the silence
I felt it, bled it, screamed it,
It only gets worse
And it kills me watching me too angry for us to survive
I used too many words tonight

Waking on tomorrow
It's gotta be better than this

I reached out, fell short
Now you're hurt, too many words
Breaking the silence
I felt it, bled it, screamed it,
It only gets worse
I used too many words tonight
Too many words
Too many words
Too many words
Too many words


. . .



Each fight just a little boy shy is he ready for the big surprise
Hell be playin lego in a dream when the shadows come to life
Each night well he shouldda been fine with a secret hes sure to keep
Two times and hell tell a little lie for the sake of him and me
Now its over
I need closure

HEY! look what you did to me
While you were tickin me off gotta be stoned leave me alone
Im waitin for mom to comfort me
But when i open my mouth
Dont say, nuthin

Each cloud and it isnt goin well
Now hes three more to the day
Cut keys but unlike you his really wont go away
16 like the woman down the street
Has invited him to come inside
First time and it didnt feel right when they really saw tryin

Chorus-end, nothings wrong
I wont say nuthings wrong.
I wont say i wont say
I wont say i wont say
I wont say i wont sayyy

17 and all hes ever seen is a limit inbetween a lie
Its kinda funny how a mom can keep living in denial
18 is a very strange seen, and hes still playin with the past
Expelled and he almost went to hell if someone had konwn to ask

[Chorus]

19 and hes inocently parked right beside a school
He stares at a boy sittin there and the boy stars at him to
He walks over
He needs closure


. . .



Verse 1

I waited for you yesterday
I waited and missed the last train
I waited to say that I’d fallen in love with your way
I waited for you yesterday
Eventually walked home in the rain
I waited to see if you felt the same for me

Chorus

But you don’t,
and you won’t
go against your asshole father
Going broke,
quitting dope
for your folks
why did I even bother?
Why did I?

Verse 2

I waited for minds to change
Pointing their fingers of blame
It’s not my fault you’re ashamed of how you feel

Chorus 2

But you don’t,
and you won’t
go against your asshole father
Going broke,
quitting dope
for your folks
why did I even bother?
Why did I?

Bridge

Cause you don’t
just admit it
Cause you won’t
just admit it
just admit it
just admit it
just admit it
just admit it
I called you a whore and broke down your door
but you don’t even hate me!
And how could I heal when you won’t even feel?
Why won’t you hate me?!

Chorus

But you don’t and you won’t
go against your asshole father
Going broke,
quitting dope
for your folks
why did I even bother?
Why did I?
But you don’t cause your nothing but
broken down daddy’s little daughter
AREN’T CHA?!!
Going broke,
quitting dope
for your folks
why did I even bother?
Why did I?

I wanna wake up
I've been walking in my sleep to long
Wake up
So sick of dreaming

I wanna slow down
I wanna be part of what is happening around me
Without breathing
Without feeling
Without screaming
So I'm leaving

[Chorus]
I'm unconsiously unconsious
Why am I filled with hate?
I'd like to blame my parents
I'm sure you'd do the same
Swallow the hurt
Spit out the jerk that's to afraid

I turn the page
To a chapter that they thought was just a phase
But it consumed me

You're right I am a failure
And when my life turns to shit
It won't have anything to do with the fact that it's all you ever taught me how to do
So you can relax!

Without feeling
Without breathing
Now I'm leaving

[Chorus]
I'm unconsiously unconsious
Why am I filled with hate?
I'd like to blame my parents
I'm sure you'd do the same
Swallow the hurt
Spit out the jerk that's to afraid

Turn the page
I've been hiding,
Drowning,
I've been running,
Starving,
I've been feeling nothing

[Chorus]
I'm unconsiously unconsious
Why am I filled with hate?
I'd like to blame my parents
I'm sure you'd do the same
Swallow the hurt
Spit out the jerk that's to afraid


. . .



I held onto you for as long as I could but today
You fell away
Now what I hold are the memories we barely made
I stood on the edge of your bridge until I felt the rain
Wash me away
My confusion left me fast as the vertigo came

What I believed to be true it was only a dream
Believed in me
I just projected it over your beautiful screen
I self medicated my way through this mess that we made
So I could stay
There was nothing, but I waited
I waited

This was my mistake
Broken are plans we made
So I will be traveling any place
Cuz anywhere's better than
Here we rest in peace
Rubble beneath the feet

I shouldn't have followed you anywhere
Cuz anywhere's better than here

Where is the space I could move, where could I rest my head
There's nothing left for me here
It's hard to leave behind
The one thing that made me feel alive
So I slide
From paranoid to paradise

This was my mistake
Broken are plans we made
So I will be traveling any place
Cuz anywhere's better than here

This was my mistake
Broken are plans we made
Here we rest in peace
Rubble beneath the feet
I shouldn't have followed you anywhere
Cuz anywhere's better than here

If you wanna sink to the bottom with me
Come get gotten, reelin' and rotten beneath
1, 2, 3 and down you go
You'll be smilin' before you know
If you wanna sink to the bottom with me

[Chorus]
We're all rotten, buried and forgotten
Livin' it up underground
So take a ride
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
You really can't be lookin' so surprised
If you can't beat them, might as well eat them
No one's gettin' out alive
Give it a try
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
It really is a wicked way to die

Listen my friend to the sound of a sweet melody
Doesn't it seem to resound like an old memory?
Screamin' and cryin' we'll have none of that
Yoy had your chance now just sit and relax
Don't you wanna sink to the bottom with me?

[Chorus]
We're all rotten, buried and forgotten
Living it up underground
So take a ride
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
You really can't be looking so surprised
If you can't beat them, might as well eat them
No one's gettin' out alive
Give it a try
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
It really is a wicked way to die

You'll get used to it in a while
Look at the way each of us smile
You were livin' a fantasy
This is exactly what you need

Don't you wanna sink to the bottom with me?
You're getting real gotten, reelin' and rotten beneath
1, 2, 3 and down you go
Feel that smile just start to grow
If you wanna sink to the bottom

[Chorus]
We're all rotten, buried and forgotten
Living it up underground
So take a ride
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
You really can't be looking so surprised
If you can't beat them, might as well eat them
No one's gettin' out alive
So give it a try, try, try, try
It really is a wicked way, it really is a wicked way,
It really is a wicked way to die

They're all just so pathetic
It's all psychosomatic
The more they think the more we know
So welcome home
