Paint the target where you like it
You've got everything you've ever wanted
It's not my fault that I dug a grave so deep
Lying at the bottom, and I'm looking up
She's all I see, she's all I see

I'm slipping further down a path I thought I'd never lead
I've got a vacant heart that's pulsing to a broken beat
He's sinking deeper now, where are your hands? How could you do this dear?
How could you leave him here?
Lies seeping through his skin just itching to reveal truth

There's a bottle at his side
Burning as he takes a drink, he takes a drink
He swallows with his pride
Chasing down and breaking, breaking

Self destruction never felt so sweet
Wake me up, wake me up
There's an ending I'm afraid to see

Manipulations got it's strings tied tightly around my wrists
A soft heart and a softer spine trapped me in her grip
She spun a web around me so tight I could barely breathe
Finished me with three words, a lie she whispered through her teeth

A four letter lie
Closet full of memories
No hate in his eyes till he find he's drowning
There's no hate in his eyes till he drowns in his lies as he takes a drink

There's a bottle at his side
Burning as he takes a drink, he takes a drink
He swallows with his pride
Chasing down and breaking, breaking

Self destruction never felt so sweet
Wake me up, wake me up
There's an ending I'm afraid to see

Your time is up, enough of the lies and sympathy
Don't make a promise you're going to break
It's not over, I'm nowhere near defeat
Who is the victim now?
I've got more spine now than you think

He's overcoming this without your hands
Now that his past has cleared, now you can leave him here
Lies seeped through his skin to release him to see the truth

There's a bottle at his side
Burning as he takes a drink, he takes a drink
He swallows with his pride
Chasing down and breaking, breaking

Self destruction never felt so sweet
Wake me up, wake me up
There's an ending I'm afraid to see
I'm afraid to see
