These chains won't break
These locks will hold all of your mistakes
You've set in reserve
Try not to shake
They'll never know all of these things
You've come to deserve

You've got the nerve
To count your sins but not your blessings
The way you instigate is often interesting
It's too sad to see that you believe in me
Sit in the corner
Think about the life you're missing
You can keep talking
But you know we'll never listen
It's too sad to see that you believe in me

I told you things
I guess I should have known
That you would let them out
Lies stay a while but
They through them out
You lie to me
You seemed torn up
I let you in, but you let me down

You've got the nerve
To count your sins but not your blessings
The way you instigate is often interesting
It's too sad to see that you believe in me
Sit in the corner
Think about the life you're missing
You can keep talking
But you know we'll never listen
It's too sad to see that you believe in me

It's not too late
You're not too sure
We think you have it in you (x2)

You've got the nerve
To count your sins but not your blessings
The way you instigate is often interesting
It's too sad to see that you believe in me
Sit in the corner
Think about the life you're missing
You can keep talking
But you know we'll never listen
It's too sad to see that you believe in me

And these chains won't break
These locks will hold
