Turn off the lights, just close your eyes
And tell me what you see
I bet it doesn't have a God damn thing to do with me
There's nothing left to say
I finally know the truth about you

You covered all, you played it well
I was the last to know
My premonition was the only thing that let it show
I gave you everything, but I could never pacify you

[Chorus:]
So go on and cry me a river
Don't say this will haunt you forever
It never did, it never will

Tear it away, I wanna see
Just what you really are
And rip the veil
That hides that wretched stone you call a heart
This is my agony
Well, I'll be damned to stay beside you

So go on and cry me a river
Don't say this will haunt you forever
It never did, it never will
Vows are not meant to be broken
You never cared for a moment
You never did, you never will

Now I know the truth about you
All you need I will deny you
I'll be damned to stay beside you

So go on and cry me a river
Don't say this will haunt you forever
It never did, it never will

All that you see, you devour
The money, the greed, and the power
You always did, you always will

(Solo)

Now I know the truth about you
All you need I will deny you
