Jealousy's an ugly word, but you don't seem to care
Converse behind my back, but now I'm here
Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat
Don"t need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away

Hatred fuels my blood
I'll burn ya down (You can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall
I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone (See it in my eyes)
Now I can understand
It's sorrow that feeds your lies
Whoa, yeah!

You're on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breathe
A crutch for you that won't always be there
Hide in the dark another day
The fear in you is here to stay
So keep the fuck away from me and learn to trust the words I say

Hatred fuels my blood
I'll burn ya down (You can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall
I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone (Witness and see it in my eyes)
(Chorus vocalizing)
Now I can understand
Put faith in you for the last time
It's sorrow that feeds your lies
Huh! Yeah, yeah!

Running from me before I tear you down (Be afraid)
You chose the wrong side (It feels so right)
I won't help you, let you run away (Despise what you say - Chorus vocalizing)
Run towards the light exposing your soul (We won't be there by your side - Chorus vocalizing)
Salvation's dying (Somebody's crying)
We're all gone in the end (Chorus vocalizing)
Sweet child we'll miss you
Whoa, so far away, far away

(Guitar solo)

I can't trust anyone (Witness and see it in my eyes - Chorus vocalizing)
Now I can understand (Put faith in you for the last time)
It's sorrow that feeds your lies

Falling away
Can't buy back time
Burn it down anyways

    I can sing this song at the correct speed. It's not that hard if u try. It didn't take me that long to figure it out. The only part I get stuck at is the transitions between singers in the fast parts. Other than that...I pretty much got it down.
