if i told you that i knew you used your superficial nature as your savior it's written all over your face did you think your inconsistencies would ever bring you more and i only remember all the things that you told me all the things that you might say turn your back on the lonely and i must say remember all the games we played i don't care about the right or the wrong ones we better find a better price to pay did i blame you for the things you told your maker am I the reason you consistently deny me it's written all over your face if i knew i'd be the one you need you'd always get more it's not a dream if you don’t sleep there are worse things and it ain't me but i won't say what i don't know and i won't cry when i let go it's so wrong

i hope it was all you expected for what it's worth i can not say the same about you though it seems that this habit's relentless i know my ambition gets worse i can't stand the look on my face what's tomorrow got let the truth be told we're all alone there's nowhere else i can go i've sunk so low i feel no shame i would've called you but i could not remember your name
3.
who's to say that i'm the one to blame i did what i thought to be the right thing though i know it was the wrong way we got what we want that's what's best for you if this is the weight of the world then it can't be as bad as these words of yours i've been through the pain and the hate and the shame and the falls i'm so glad i've lived through it all now it's your turn it's no surprise the cause of my demise i ran out of ways to tell the better lies i tried to spare your life of alibis at least i thought i did did you think so you knew i'd take the pain allow me to erase the stain when your expressions speak louder than words it's the worst of these things that i've heard when we learn to forget who we are i'll remember you will you remember us say again you like how i pretend that i know where you've been and know all about this world you've been living in tell me just how long can your future last when you're stuck in the past i know what you did now it's your turn
4.
it's over can you see the reflection change for me this time think twice when you decide now you stand before me i beg you to feel the same i finally found the way at five a.m. in the rain to never do you harm and hurt you just the same if i miss your call it might not save me at all our hands become undone we won't survive the fall so long i'm wrong reflection remains the same for me this time just wait 'til she finds out heaven is empty tell me what went wrong is this what we planned i told you all along it's not the man i am come on and give me a sign these things seem to last for days when the ends justify the means the means justify the ways when the sunshine it gets in your eyes it blinds your perception of lies when the ends justify the means the means justify the wise

don't you know you got me going in the worst way i don't care if you run and tell your kinfolks i hold it close to my chest like it's my last breath even though i know it's better when i'm flat broke i turn around and take a look at my better half is it just another dime that you're looking for do you know a better way to keep my dignity how much does free will cost you let them take the rage you let them give you these animal cages i don't care if it won't be the same i won't be afraid i won't be ashamed all i know is i'm getting older just look over your shoulders and you will find that i am halfway over the wall fear not what you say has no relevance even though it comes back and hits us tenfold it's your image that desires all this elegance our hearts bleed the faces of these dead souls do you have a better vision of this tragedy is it just enough tolerance to save us all how many dimes do you drop to make a kennedy let them fall you destroyed what you own was it wrong it's no secret take it all before it's gone

some things are better left unsaid i can't control just how loud your voice is in my head some things are better left unread i can't believe these words will be the last ones that you read if still it seems to me there's some things i need to know if you want me to forget you you better let me know when these broken hearts collide spilling the things we keep inside from the truth that will never be it’s already known to me all the things you will not tell because you know me well so tell me what you're waiting for is it love or is it the end of the war some things are better left for dead i still can't help but wonder if i'm better off instead but i know i deserve to be upset as we walk along these lines did we earn the time we spent it seems so clear to me there's some things i need to know if you want me to forget you you better let me go i'm lost for words i don't know why we need to forgive we're better off saying goodbye stand up stand up for no one i guess i don’t belong here anyway stand up i thought you’d be stronger i guess i don’t belong here anyway what are you waiting for is it love or is it the end of the war tell me about the other things tell me about the better times tell me about the other ones or was it all just another lie though it seems so clear to me there's some things i need to know if you want me to forget you you better let me go let me go

believe me i want to prepare for the worst when they send you but i won’t let them tear us apart there’ll be no liars out tonight i just have to get through this night on my own there’ll be no lovers left to fight when they decide who was right i’ll take what’s left of my home when you all just fade away i’ll have to get by on my own when you all fade away when they decide who was right let them take all that you own when there’s nothing left for them to take away it’s like lying awake inside a strange place there’ll be no liars out tonight i just have to get through this night on my own there’s no lovers left to fight when they decide who was right i’ll take what’s left of my home when it all fades away let them take all that you own there’s a good chance that none of us will walk away how the hell could i tell you no

it means the world for me to see you fall now stand up so i can knock you down it means the world to me to please them all and i know what that means i want you to know exactly what it's worth these words feel the same i want to remove your image from this earth if i find you first i can't hide the shame of when i look away there's one thing i know that i found that i need you to bleed i need you to sleep so i dare you to come around stay where you are
10.
state your case alone will you suffer diminish the seeds and punish us all these weeded plains you divided in numbers you'll need more than a god to channel their faith when they find out you lied what more must i say to dethrone a liar he takes from the world and wants you to pay for it all define me just once i live for the day to sit by the wall when the world brings you down stake your claim awake from your slumber diminish the seeds and punish us all elitist games you can call me by number you'll need more than a god to channel their faith when they find out you lied i know why you doubted me i know why you feel no shame we have seen your face before we will burn you just the same
11.
you think i'd let you get away you believed me i deceived you then i left you on your own what did you think my soul would say do these reasons you lie mean as much on the day that you what's the bottom line should've stopped me when i told you about the first time i thought you'd see things clearly i loved you more when you wanted to kill me the better times are wearing even thinner than a straight line you fought so hard for a better day don't even waste time what about your words if you knew i was to blame would it mean as much to be what did you think these words were for do the reasons you lie mean as much on the day that you die the senseless appeal i don't know your pain i hope that you suffer your death shall remain in vain what were you thinking
