I don't wanna say what I got on my mind, Cause nothing tonight wants to
Come out on time, The truth is I'd rather sit out and unwind, Let somebody
Else tell their story this time

I wonder what happened to give me the right, To step on a platform and pick
Up a mic, & tell you the way to be living your life, Cause all my
Credentials were lies

You've had your say, now take your seat, I know my place, you don't know me

I'll probably end up in flames before the end of the night, Watch me burn
In the fire, watch me bid you goodbye, Your words fall right off the page,
Like they fall on deaf ears, You know that it's over, nothing left for you
Here

(Nothing left for you here)

I waited too long, letting people like you tell me what they want & what I
Shouldn't do, So mark me with words, but you can't tie my hands, There's
Nothing I'll say to make you understand

I know who I am, I know where I'll end up: in flames & that's fine, cause
I'm finally fed up, Stick with what I started, don't care how it hurts, The
Loudest get shot, at the worst

You've had your say, now take your seat, I know my place, you don't know me

I'll probably end up in flames before the end of the night, Watch me burn
In the fire, watch me bid you goodbye, Your words fall right off the page,
Like they fall on deaf ears, You know that it's over, nothing left for you
Here

(Nothing left for you here)

You know I'll never fold like you're the authority, I won't throw my hands
Up like you're the authority, You know I'll never fold like you're the
Authority, I won't throw my hands up like you're the authority

I'll probably end up in flames before the end of the night, Watch me burn
In the fire, watch me bid you goodbye, Your words fall right off the page,
Like they fall on deaf ears, You know that it's over, nothing left for you
Here

(Nothing left for you here)

I'll probably end up in flames before the end of the night, Watch me burn
In the fire, watch me bid you goodbye, Your words fall right off the page,
Like they fall on deaf ears, You know that it's over, nothing left for you
Here

(Nothing left for you here)
