Every word I said is what I mean
Every word I said is what I mean
Everything I gave is what I need
Virgin eyes and dirty looks on what I have and why I took
Counting all the hands I shook
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking
So bleed your heart out
There's no more rides for free
Bleed your heart out
I said, “What's in it for me?
What's in it for me?”

Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've shown is what I feel
Buying lies and stealing jokes and laughing every time I choke
Biding all the time you took
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
So bleed your heart out
There's no more rides for free
Bleed your heart out
I said, “What's in it for me?
What’s in it for me?
What’s in it for?
What’s in it for?

Every word I said is what I mean (Is what I, is what I, is what I)
Everything I gave is what I need (Is what I, is what I, is what I)
Everything I've held is what I've freed (Is what I’ve, is what I’ve, is what I’ve)
Everything I've shown is what I feel (Is what I’ve, is what I’ve, is what I’ve)
Virgin eyes and dirty looks on what I have and why I took
Counting all the hands I shook
Now I know why you've been shaking
Buying lies and stealing jokes and laughing every time I choke
Biding all the time you took
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
