Milk it for all it's worth
Make sure you get there first
The apple of your eye
The rotten core inside
We are the prisoners
Things couldn't get much worse
I've had it up to here
You know your end is near

[Chorus]
You had to have it all
Well have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard
You will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in your misery
And hate what you've become

Intoxicated eyes
No longer live that life
You should have learned by now
I'll burn this whole world down
I need some peace of mind
No fear of what's behind
You think you've won this fight
You've only lost your mind

[Chorus]
You had to have it all
Well have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard
You will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in your misery
And hate what you've become

Hold me down
I will live again
Pull me out
I will break it in
Hold me down
Better in the end
Hold me down

[Chorus]
You had to have it all
Well have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard
You will get what you deserve
When all is said and done
I will be the one
To leave you in your misery
And hate what you've become

Heaven help you
Heaven help you

    This song is Ben getting angry about Jeremy Hummel attempting to sue the band after he was kicked out. It's saying he was a greedy bastard who only cared about money... I can tell he was really pissed when he wrote this.

    Yes this was about drummer and co-founder of Breaking Benjamen Formally known as Plan 9, Hummel. He was kicked out of the band due to the fact that he was on maternity leave to spend time with his new baby boy Julian. Benjamen had gotten impatient and started to seek out new drummers. Eventually Terminating Hummel. Not being compensated for his labor he contributed to the band, he rightfully sued. My opinion, this made Benjamen look like a tool bag. Great song though. Artist that write their own lyrics: their pain speaks the sweetest to me.
