You tricked me and you licked me And you made me believe That you cared, you’d be there You only wanted the best for me But you slipped, and you fell You couldn’t stop so you just let go Yeah you lied, tried to hide I found out and now I know that… Everything I hate about myself I got from you I should have known not to trust The one who taught me to lie You’re a betrayer and a destroyer You never want to look inside You’re so proud you say it aloud But you deserve no credit here And you brag “Look what I made!” Your love is so insincere Everything I hate about myself I got from you Every time, the same line, you say “What? Was I doing something wrong?” You even blew your one last chance when you said “I’m not the one who has a problem, you’re the one who has a problem” Everything I hate about myself I got from you Your ignorance and malice, you gave me that too Everything I hate about myself I got from you And you don’t even know Shipwrecker! Yeah, we gotta start war now

I never wrote you any love songs Except the one I’m singing now And you know I’d sing it to your face If you were standing in the crowd You peeled back my skin Revealed a mess of doubt I thought that I knew myself But then I found out Your love cuts like a knife You never told me your secrets But I guess that’s alright Yeah I guess I understand Cause when you tried to open up to me You know I went home and cut myself And though I used the big knife It wasn’t as sharp No, it wasn’t as deep As you cut into my heart Your love cuts like a knife Yeah you cut right through me Yeah you split me in two If I couldn’t live with myself How could I live with you? So if someday you forgive me And open up the door I know that we could be perfect Because I’m finally all the things you wanted When you thought I was what you wanted

Rise Above 04:26
You can’t get inside the way I feel You can’t recognize the fake next to the real Now you think you know it all, you got it all figured out You only listen to reason in your moments of doubt I’ve tasted pain and I’ve tasted love and I can’t believe you can’t rise above Your face, your tate, your pace command My gaze, my phrase, spills into your hands But now you think you own it all, it all belongs to you Play along and dance the song, there’s nothing I can do I’ve tasted pain and I’ve tasted love and I can’t believe you can’t rise above And you know I’m right so you push me away Cause if you let me inside that’s where I’d stay
4.
When we first met you were all set but me, I was a wreck You picked me up and cleaned me up and taught me self-respect Made a mistake but didn't break because I need you so It fell apart but in our heart you know we can't let go No no We can't let go A second chance for our romance but I slipped up again Kept it inside I had to lie so that we could sustain You got to close to hide the truth and so you had to know And now you leave me but believe me I just can't let go No no I can't let go Someday I'm gonna have you Someday you'll be mine, I know it Someday we'll be together Someday you'll be mine But now all I have is time Can't let go No no I can't, can't let go

Vengeance 05:23
It started such a long time ago A child’s fists begin to grow He learned about peace and he learned about war And he learned that some things are worth fighting for I got adrenaline rush I got the urge to crush I got my clenched fist I got vengeance I got a rebel’s tryst I got your head in a twist I got my clenched fist I got vengeance With stronger hands now he’s a man His fists utilitarian He learned about truth and he learned about lies And he’s picking on someone his own size Twenty-five years suppressed The clenched fist wakens from its rest Well you’re full of lies and your full of shit And now your face is full of my fist I got adrenaline rush I got the urge to crush I got my clenched fist I got vengeance I got a rebel’s tryst I got your head in a twist I got my clenched fist I got vengeance I got fists of steel I got rage appeal I got vengeance I got a fury storm I got your face to reform I got vengeance I got arms of rage I got a war to wage I got vengeance I got my clenched fist I got my clenched fist I got my clenched fist I got vengeance

Never light, always dark Always feeling torn apart Never good enough for you Never sure what you want me to do Never happy, always cross Never a win, always a loss Never sure what to say To get you to go away Never up, always down Always sink, always drown I’ll never be what I should You know I’d stop this if I could Darker, always darker Once again I’m alone I never feel at home Always weak, never strong Never sure where I belong Fade to white, gray to black On defence from your attack Never weak, never a crack Always a fight but I can’t fight back Darker, always darker Never light, always dark Always feeling torn apart Never good enough for you Never sure what you want me to do Darker, always darker

The Episode 04:41
I thought I was cool but you’re cooler than me I thought that I was stable but you threw me off key I thought I knew it all but you taught me so much I thought I had the magic but it's in your touch You turned me upside down and it’s not like I planned Cause now I’m lying on the floor with a knife in my hand You turned me inside out, I’m a mess of doubt I thought I knew myself but I guess I didn’t understand I thought I had it all but you said less is more So I gave it all away like I should have before And now I didn’t finish this verse cause I’ve got nothing to say I’d rather use my tongue to lick you You turned me upside down and it’s not like I planned Cause now I’m lying on the floor with a knife in my hand You turned me inside out, I’m a mess of doubt I thought I knew myself but I guess I didn’t understand I thought you were cool but now I’m cooler than you You were always stable but now I’m stable too I thought you could be together but now I’ve lost you forever And there’s nothing I can do to make this any better
