Hey, you there, did you think it could be so easy?
Weren't you scared when she pulled away your skin and exposed your lungs?

Hit the lights, it's easy. You can't see when you're blinded.
You've run aground so watch your answers.

If I should die with nothing other than piece of mind that she's always writing lies, (I can't take another.)
Like a child, she can't be left alone.

Our love is divine? I'll show you how to forget the way he loved you like that, just let me love you like that.
But it's all a lie.

Other hand turns over, all the while you're blinded.
You've run aground so watch your answers.

Wait a minute here, what are you trying to do to me?
Is it fair if I keep my hands up here and only listen to you speak?
