I laid the devil’s curse on you
For all those years you put us through
I’ve been living with your words around my neck

Now I always feel so wrong
’Cause you have shaped me for so long
A heart of stone and all these things I have become
I’m consumed by you

You made me carve I my own skin
Been on the outside looking in
Oh I died so young I killed myself for you

Growing smaller every day
Like I’m always in your way
And then blame it all one me
You can blame on me

Will you pull the trigger
Tell me what to say
I never learn
Am I in your way?

Been screaming loudless
All my life
I’ve had enough
Make sure this time I’ll be heard
The payback that I deserve
I’m consumed by you

The glass I turned to
While being crucified by you
We play the skills that we’ve been dealt,
And oh I played it oh so well

Became a ghosts around this house
Distant smoke, you closed your eyes
The dead will dance for me tonight
I’m lead into the light

Will you pull the trigger
Tell me what to say
I never learn
Am I in your way?

Been screaming loudless
All my life
I’ve had enough
Make sure this time I’ll be heard
The payback that I deserve

And I need them all to know
How you were valuing my soul
That you made me think just 10 years old
That I must be the devil’s child
Convinced me with your lies
A family of hidden crimes
I won’t be quiet this time
Been screaming loudless
All my life
I’ve had enough
I just want to be heard
The payback that I deserve
