I'ma be that nail in your coffin
Sayin' that I soften
I was duckin' down to reload
So you can save your petty explanations
I don't have the patience

Before you even say it I know
You let your pride or your ego
Talk slick to me no
That is not the way I get down
And look at how you lose your composure
Now let me show ya exactly how the breaking point sounds

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

What is it you want me to tell ya?
I'm not a failure
I would rather live and let be
But you canme with the right kind of threat to
Push me to let you
Know you can't intimidate me
You disrespect me so clearly
Now you better hear me
That is not the way it goes down
You did it to yourself and it's over
Now let me show ya exactly how the breaking point sounds

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

[Bridge]
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself

You did it to yourself!
You did it to yourself!
You did it to yourself!
You did it to yourself!

I wanna see you choke on your lies!
Swallow up your greed!
Suffer all alone in your misery!
Choke on your lies!
Swallow up your greed!
Suffer all alone in your misery!

    Personally i think this song is about someone who manipulated someone and they ended up betraying them. So the singer is the betrayed and he is tyelling the betrayer to choke on their lies and suffer in their misery alone because everyone hates them now. >. < kind of a situation i personally know.
