lyrics

you set yourself up
I can’t bite my tongue
I say too much
the damage is done
tears don’t change anything
they’re old news, overused
this shouldn’t be happening
your one function: self destruction
just waiting to detonate
it hurts to confess, but you’re useless

over and over she never learns
blackboard erased in the night
wake up
get ready to fight
blow everything up
tear everyone down

hammer it into your head, but you’re brain dead
my words bounce right off your buzz
I can’t ignore you now
for years you’ve worn me down
you’re not human anymore
it’s your mission to be the victim
everything’s a disaster
you feel alone and it’s true
how could we possibly respect you?

beyond recognition
the truth is a tragedy
a source of affliction
you bring out the worst in me
a pathetic depiction
of what you’re supposed to be
you are ruined to me

over and over she never learns
blackboard erased in the night
wake up
get ready to fight
blow everything up
tear everyone down
