I am done pretending
You have failed to find what's left
I will suck you dry again
Some are not worth saving
You are such a pretty mess
I will choke the life within

Now you want to take me down
As if I even care
I am the monster in your head
And I thought you'd learn by now
It seems you haven't yet
I am the venom in your skin
And now your life
Is broken

After the lights go out on you
After your worthless life is through
I will remember how you scream
I can't afford to care
I can't afford to care

I am suffocating
You have failed to pull me in
I will drag you down again
Life is unrelenting
Feeding lies into my head
I will feed the lies you live

Now you want to take me down
As if I even care
I am the monster in your head
And I thought you'd learn by now
It seems you haven't yet
I am the venom in your skin
And now your life
Is broken

After the lights go out on you
After your worthless life is through
I will remember how you scream
I can't afford to care
I can't afford to care

    I think it goes back and forth. It says that i am a monster, basically bad for you. Someone not good enough. Then it says you feed lies into my head as if the postition has switched. I dont really know its just my take on it..

    It means they ripped off the title of one of the most classic hard rock songs by ufo. That's what this song means. Maybe their next song could be called we are the champions, or stairway to heaven or maybe detroit rock city

    The song to me means taking revenge on someone that has done you so wrong and making them pay in the worst most hurtful and brutal way. I love this song!
