Somebody give me a sign
That everything's going as planned.
And then everything falls away
Into the darkness of this shallow place.
The detail is striking.
The room's cold and fright'ning.
You kick and you scream,
You try everything to survive.
But you should know your fate by now
.

Pre-Chorus:
They told me how I should be.
But I broke the mold, somehow
.

Chorus:
It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now.
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done
To me
.

You, you know you gotta assert yourself, leave what you need for now.
It's not the time or place you're searching for.
All I can give is my worst of intentions.
You're nothing to me, and everyone can see
That your life's a lie,
There's no where left to hide
.

Pre-Chorus:
They told me how I should be.
But I broke the mold, somehow.

Chorus (x 2):
It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now.
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done. (To me)

Bridge:
Watch your back.
You'll lose yourself.
This is a battleground!
When will they know!
Your life's a lie.

Chorus (x 2):
It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done. (Somebody give me a sign)

It's too late, too late, you keep trying to resolve the past right now (That everything's going as planned)
But I swear I'll be the one (And then everything falls away.)
To let the world know what you've done.

Pre-Chorus:
They told me how I should be.
But I broke the mold, somehow.
