Taking Back Sunday – I'll Let You Live lyrics

The first degree was a riot
We're making sure
Our lesson's learned
I'm not ashamed, but I'm trying
I've come to expect
The standards you have set

Tell me just how dangerous is second best
You've settle for less
And I'm sure you'll settle again

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out
(Does this make you feel safe?)
There's no stopping this
I'm gutting you out
(Does this make you feel safe?)

The closer that I look is just
The further that you get already
Stubborn skin thickens in attempt to understand
(Understand)

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out
(Does this make you feel safe?)
There's no stopping this
I'm gutting you out
(Does this make you feel safe?)

We got tired of waiting
(of waiting)
The guilt subsides when the night begins
And I know it's not what you deserve

Came as a gift from a good friend (a good friend)
That disapproves (but understands)
That you represent and actively encouraged
Of all of my worst habits they all are
Proof that we are both capable of the most terrible things
"Don't test me"

There's no stopping me
I'm gutting you out
(Does this make you feel safe?)
There's no stopping this
I'm gutting you out
(Does this make you feel safe?)

We got tired of waiting(of waiting)
The guilt subsides when the night begins (of waiting)
And I know it's not what you deserve

(Silent... For good)
(You're silent... For good)

And I know it's not what you deserve
(It's not what you deserve)
I know it's not what you deserve
(I know it's not what you deserve)
