lyrics

Open your ears:

Your moral code is not godly as you think
You are righteous and possessive and your attitude stinks kid
Bit my tongue
For too long
Manipulate, mutate and snake around the heads of morons
I'm done and if you really see through me
You'll realise I lied when I said I was truly sorry
Bide my time
While my teeth grind
Your competence in friendship's looking fucked from here, as the green clears.

If I sing it in the style you like then
Will it maybe get through to your head
I've got more on the line than the sliver of your pride
I'm not sorry, not playing mr nice guy
It's on your head and you've been a prick again

Are you still listening, no?

Never have, I know you never will though
Surprised you hear shit at all, over your ego
Whatever happened to respect and trust and was dependancy a word you used to build yourself up
I know, you know,
And if you ask where next then I will tell you where to go
If you ask where next then I will tell you where to go

I couldn’t stand by your side if I tried
I’ve got no intentions to hide but my snide
I couldn’t stand by your side if I tried
You’ve got no alibi while my back eats your knife

(You know you’ve pushed me,)
(Don’t come back crying when the loneliness comes your way)

If you still feel so fucking proud
how’d you like the sound of us now?

If I sing it in the style you like then
Will it maybe get through to your head
I've got more on the line than the sliver of your pride
I'm not sorry, not playing mr nice guy
It's on your head and you've been a prick again
