Promises you never meant to keep
What I thought we had was love
Used to say I was the only one
How could I be so wrong?

When you chose me to be the one
Our life together has not begun
Manipulation, presume control
The lights are broken inside my soul

Overcome by the emptiness
Delusions of true love
Cast into the very dark abyss
Crest fallen and undone

When you chose me to be the one
You broke my spirit, we can't go on
Insinuation, it takes it's toll
The lights are broken inside my soul

Now I have my reason to
Turn my back on you
Now I don't believe in you
Love lies bleeding through

Everything that meant so much to me
I left it all for love
I gave you all I had to give
But it wasn't good enough

Thought I loved you
But it's too late
You said you loved me
But now I hate

Dead and buried
Let's fill the hole
The lights are broken inside my soul

Now I have my reason to
Turn my back on you
Now I don't believe in you
Love lies bleeding through

I can't get away
I hope you suffer
I won't let love ever drive me insane

Unleash the pain
Laugh as you suffer
You turned our love into my ugly shame

Sick of your ways
Sick of the future
I take my life back to live it my way

Just walk away
Leave me forever
You can't erase all the damage you've done...

(1st screaming stat - Eric)
(2nd blues licks - Alex)
