I'm in conniptions
For the final act
You came here for
The one derivative
You manage is the
One I abhor
I need a minute to eliminate
For everyone the
Everyday bullshit things
That you have done

Your impossible ego
Fuck is like a
Megalomaniacal tab
On my tongue
You fuckin' touch me
I will rip you apart
I'll reach in and take
A bite out of that shit
You call a heart...

I don't mind being ogled
Ridiculed, made to feel minuscule
When you consider the source
It's kinda pitiful
The only thing you really know
About me is...
That's all you'll ever know

I know why you blame me
I know why you blame yourself
I know why you plague me
I know why you plague yourself

I'm turning it around
Like a knife in the shell
I wanna understand why
But I'm hurting myself
I haven't seen a lot reasons
To stop it
I can't just drop it
I'm just a bastard
But at least I admit it
AT LEAST I ADMIT IT

I know why you blame me
I know why you blame yourself
I know why you plague me
I know why you plague yourself

YEAH

Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you, YEAH
Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you, YEAH
I can't fucking take it anymore
A snap of the synapse
And now it's fuckin' war
Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you, YEAH

I know why you blame me
I know why you blame yourself
I know why you plague me
I know why you plague yourself

I know why you blame me
I know why you blame yourself
I know why you plague me
I know why you plague yourself

Well, I know why you blame yourself
I know why you blame yourself
I know why you plague yourself
I know why you plague yourself

    Corey is pissed and fed up from posers. The quote "Kill you fuck you I will never be you" is directed to followers. People who are not being themselves, and trying to fit in by acting like someone else. The quote “I know why you plague me” basically means that he knows why people are fucking with him and he is sick of it and of all the posers in this world; people doing things for popularity and so on. The quote “I'll reach in and take a bite out of that shit you call a heart,” is just warning everyone not to push him any further or else he will snap and kill him. The quote “I know why u plague (yourself)” is informing the person that he knows why he is messing around with him, and that he has had enough and he cannot be pushed around any longer.
