Painful words thrown like ninja stars...
To leave more scars...
Every intention of hitting my heart so the next beat won't start.
I won't fall apart. Not this time.
Go ahead and try.
Hit rewind to remind you the truth of your lie... the hello of our goodbye.
See for yourself where it went wrong,
How you were the criminal,
The murderer all along.
Twist my mind,
Convince me I'm ill,
Tell me to take even more numbing pills.
So you can control me, like your little obedient robot
And make me believe that you're all I got.
Maybe you're right,
That's a possibility,
but then again I'm happy being the only one who loves me.
Tear me down,
Block the road and I'll run through the field.
Turn off the lights,
And I'll light a flame...
I'll burn the evil firewood that you've piled on my name.
I'm not giving in,
I won't let you back in to drown in your sin.
This door is closed tight,
Too late to make it right,
It's dead bolted and chained because I'm done fighting this fight.
So good day... and good night.
I'll be alright.
