The Word Alive – Glass Castle lyrics

[Verse 1]
So you think you can get rid of me?
I'll take your place at the head of this dynasty.
I am, I am the reason you're alive.

forget who put you here.

[Chorus]
You need to look back and see,
How you treated me, how you treated me,
When you bite off the hand that feeds,
You'll live without what you truly need.
Sacrificing everything, but does it even mean anything?
Any moment this could all be gone, without respect it won't be long.

[Verse 2]
Have you had enough of me?
You act like I'm something you can throw away.

[Chorus]
You need to look back and see,
How you treated me, how you treated me,
When you bite off the hand that feeds,
You'll live without what you truly need.
Sacrificing everything (any moment this could all be gone),
But does it even mean anything? (Without respect it won't be long)

[Hook]
I am the reason you can't run away,
I am the reason you can't escape.
Give up, you're mine!
You're terrible inside!
I am the reason you're alive.
I am the reason you're alive.

[Brige]
(You need to look back and see, how you treated me)
How you treated me!

[Outro]
You need to look back and see,
How you treated me, how you treated me.
When you bite off the hand that feeds,
You'll live without what you truly need.
Sacrificing everything, but does it even mean anything?
