Alkaline Trio – In Vein lyrics

My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing,
But you might as well just change your name.
'Cause I only recognize this shadow,
Kinda blackened superhero with nobody's best interests in mind.

Now there's blood in the water, that heart bleeds from this stone here,
And we turned into our cheap wine.
And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rot,
And you were so supportive as I drank through the pain.

You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

Dove off that east side platform, jack-knifed a bone dry floor.
One broken ankle save my name.
And this eraser burn, I dig in deep at every turn.
It keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same.

You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place,
Don't wanna be the one who takes,
I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

(Whoa-oh whoa-oh, Whoa-oh whoa-oh oh [x2])

I don't wanna take, I don't wanna take this place, no.
I don't want to take, I don't wanna take this place, no.
No-oh, no-oh. I don't wanna take this place, no.
No-oh, no-oh. I don't wanna take this place, no.

You recognize this shape, it's the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don't wanna be the one who takes this place,
Don't wanna be the one who takes,
I don't wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.
