lyrics

You sucker of blood
You ruiner of all that is good
You’re draining all of the life from me
I’ve stood my ground
But you’re never pulling your punches
You like to see that we suffer

Pulled apart like a doll
Thrown away on the heap
No remorse as they go
Always watch as they weep
Turn a blind eye to circumstance
So much colder than they know

Say something that
Means something
Not poisoned words
Hollow and blurred
Like a voice in my head
Saying I’m better off dead
Some things are better left unsaid

There's no reprieve
From plans that were formed to deceive
Kept in the dark and always so naive
Clutching at straws
Pushing on all of the buttons
Trying so hard just to make this work

Well we’ll go berserk
Lashing out
As we search for self worth

Chewed to bits like a toy
Tossed upon the pile
All the knives cut so deep
Stabbing as they smile
All the serpentine slithering
Their intentions becoming clear

Raise the flag
It's time to go
There's no backing down
It's here, it’s time to face our fears
We’re scared, holding in the tears
Be strong, there’s nothing for us here
Just weight we’ve carried round for years

Say something that
Means something
Words that are real
Something I can feel
As we’ve been left for dead
Some things are better unsaid

Say something that
Means something
Words that are real
Something I can feel
As we’ve been left for dead
Some things are better left unsaid

I’ll put you in your place
Deep in a corner of my mind
You are such a hideous disgrace

I hope it burns down around you
As you turn to face the music
But I bet you won’t care if it disintegrates
Dust into the air, you’ll just start anew
I hope I forget about you
