Never said I was innocent,
I will burn in Hell for the things I've done to you.
Never said I was anything good,
I should die from the shame for what I put you through.
Lemme be the one to bring us back from the dead.
I will take the blame for everything.
You know I just wanna help you forget.
We are still livin' on broken glass,
We are still laughin' 'cause it just keeps happenin'.
All your friends they can kiss my ass,
They only see the simple things that they wanna see.
Lemme be the one to make the pain go away.
Shave my skin, show a brand new face.
You know I just wanna know that you're okay.
You don't have to like it but the swing is in my hands now.
Sometimes... I think... the power is better than a hearth rug.
Sometimes... I think... the power is better than anything.
Sometimes... I think... letting go is just like giving up.
Sometimes all I think I wanna do is die inside,
All I wanna do is die inside,
All I ever think about is you and me falling apart.
Never said I was innocent,
I will burn in Hell for the things I've done to you.
Never said I was anything good,
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Lemme be the one to make the pain go away.
Shave my skin, show a brand new face.
You know I just wanna know you're okay.
Lemme be the one to bring us back from the dead,
I will take the blame for everything.
I just wanna help you forget.
Sometimes...
I think...
Letting go is just like giving up.
Sometimes all I think about is falling apart.
