Fuck you

You took what you wanted and left, like locusts
Everything I gave to you, everything that we've been through
You bled me dry and then left, like leeches
Go, you got what you could now leave, like vultures

Ripped apart in minutes what was built in seven years
The ink scarred on your back may as well of disappeared
For as long as I remember, you sold everything you owned
But now you sold our friendship, you're on your fucking own

Sleep with one eye open
Because sleep with one eye open

('Cause)
If I had it my way I'd slit your throat with the knife that you left in my back
All the shame, all this guilt, all this regret,
That's me

I'm inside of you
I'm inside of you
I'm inside of you
I'm inside of you

And this is your world
Fucking falling apart mate
From the inside out
Everything will fall apart at your feet
You got hell to pay
Yeah you got hell to pay

And you better fucking bow
Bow down to me
You better beg for mercy
Get on your fucking knees and cry me a fucking river

Sleep with one eye open
Sleep with one eye open
Sleep with one eye open

Best friends means forever
Best friends means forever, cunt

    I just now listened to the song and looked at these lyrics... This means so much to me now. I had a friend stab me in the back for a girl.. Now I will watch his world burn in front of his feet. >=(

    One of his (oli sykes) mate of "seven years" backstabbed him in some sort of way. And this song is about the hate that oli now has for that person.

    Fuck you,
    you took what you wanted and left, like locusts.
    everything I gave to you, everything that we've been through
    you bled me dry and then left, like leeches.
    go, you got what you could now leave, like vultures

    ripped apart in minutes what was built in seven years
    the ink scarred on your back may as well of disappeared
    for as long as I remember, you sold everything you owned
    but now you sold our friendship, you're on your fucking own.
    (because)

    If I had it my way I'd slit your throat with the knife you left in my back
    all the shame, all this guilt, all this regret, that's me
    I'm inside of you and this is your world
    fucking falling apart mate, from the inside out.
    everything will fall at your feet - you got hell to pay

    and you better fucking bow down to me
    you better beg for mercy
    get on your fucking knees and cry me a fucking river

    sleep with one eye open
    sleep with one eye open
    sleep with one eye open
    best friends means forever, cunt

    It's all about curtis ward.. That's why curtis is out of the band..
    There's something that the whole band got mad to curtis ward.. I've read that oli were screaming and shouting and spitting to curtis.. Oli said that he wanted to kill curtis while.. Somebody is pulling him..
    That's why best friends means forever>.
