You like to hurt me
You know that you do
You like to think in some way
That it's me and not you
(But we know that isn't true)

You like to have me
Jump and be good
But I don't want to do it
You don't know why I don't act
The way you think I should

You thought they'd make me
Behave and submit
What were you thinking
'Cause I don't forget

You don't know why
I won't give in
To hell with the pressure
I'm not caving in
You know that I got
Under your skin
You sold your soul
But I won't let you win

You talk too much
You say I do
Difference is nobody cares about you

You've got all the answers
You know everything
Why nobody asked you
It's a mystery to me

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to
Or not to believe

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who you can trust now
Or you should believe
You should believe
You don't know who you can trust now
Or you should believe

You close your eyes
All well and good
I'll kick you ass
Like I said that I would

You tell them stories
They'd rather believe
Use and confuse them
They're numb and naпve
The truth is the truth hurts don't you agree
It's harder to live with the truth about you
Than to live with the lies about me

Nobody owes you
Not one god damn thing
You know where to put your
Just shut up and sing

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to
Or not to believe
I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You chose to hurt those that love you
And not set them free
Not set them free
You chose to hurt those that love you
And not set them free

You don't need
Anybody else to be
Sorry for you
You've got no heart
You can't see
All that you've done for me
I know the reasons
You tear me apart

    "just shut up and sing" - I think this is a direct quote from slash, and is probably what ignited the feud.
    "you chose to hurt those that love you, and won't set them free" - this is an obvious, direct, and verbatim reference to slash. The first part, refers to slash walking out on guns n roses hurting those that loved him (the fans). The second part is an obvious reference to the first song released by velvet revolver "set me free".
    There is a 3rd party involved in this song as well - the 'fans' of g'n'are that chose to disavow the 'new' g'n'are and that felt velvet revolver was the real new g'n'are.
