Bumblefoot – What I Knew lyrics

So break the chain, deflate the pain
And erase the hate of the place you fell in
You dwellin' in stink and your mind goes slowly
Shrinking, breaking down in the sour soup

The mind is tickin' on borrowed time
And your heart won't beat on the jump start
You're 28 feet beneath the ground
And you won't be climbin' soon

Never would have been with you, knewing what I knew
Never would have give you love, doing what I do

Too late to give you up, knewing what I knew
Look what I knew...

I knew nothing - there was something there
And I saw it - I just didn't care
And now it's got me by the hair
Nurturing my face in shit

The truth was hanging right behind my head
Like a fat carrot on a stick
Now I move forward dumb and blind
Or backward chasing it
