lyrics

Last night I thought about the shit we’ve been through
and I kept asking myself, “what the hell happened to you?”
You have to admit that it’s kind of messed up;
You judge everyone based solely on what’s in their cup.

You said that you were through, you lied about that too.
This time has been almost as wasted as you.
And I’m feeling content though I’m cold with contempt.
You only wanna’ be friends when you’re broken and bent.
If you ever call me up sober, it’s only to vent.
I’ve been a mess since you left.

We both knew this would never end well,
but I continued writing songs and even deeper I fell.
‘Cause I’m a cynic and I’m bitter, yeah well how could you tell?
But don’t pretend you really know me ‘cause there’s no way in hell.
Because now, I’m stuck between a rock and hard place.
And you’re stuck between a heart and saving face.

Oh, you’re at another party.
Careful not to blink.
Someone might slip anthrax in your drink.

I said that I was through, I lied about that too.
My youth has been almost as wasted as you.
And I’m feeling content though I’m cold with contempt.
You only wanna’ be friends when you’re broken and bent.
If you ever call me up sober, it’s only to vent.
I’ve been a mess since you left.

How can you bear to look at yourself
and realize that you’ve become somebody else?
How can you bear to hold my hand
and know that you’ve been letting other guys in your pants?

All of my secrets, I locked in your basement.
Then blasted your speakers so you had to face it.
How about all of those lies? Did he taste it?
I hope they infect him.
I hope it’s contagious.
