The Receiving End Of Sirens – Weight/Wait lyrics

You don't know me
No, you never did, dear
I'm the one your wife and kids were warned about
I'm the one you tried to keep at bay

I won't, no
I won't, no
I can't be kept away.

I hate to be the one who said 'I told you so'
But I am, I am, I am

And you never thought you would

I'm the one who eats your family whole
I'm the one who smiles your every goal
I'll refer to you as something you won't know, me
A demon within arms reach
A phantom in the oh-so-ugly hate

And I'm the one you tried to keep at bay
I'm here to stay, I'm here to stay, I'm here to stay
