lyrics

What the fuck!? Indeed... I've got something to say:
Another throat goes quiet and decides to walk away...
I've seen enough, I've heard enough to know the fakes,
From the ones who truly mean everything they say.

Left without a reason. Left without a choice.
You got so sick of screaming that you left without your voice.
A different place, a different time. Before it all turned black.
I find myself sitting here wanting to go back.

You never asked to much of us, we gave you all we could.
The blood, the sweat, the wasted tears­­, the message understood.
I know you only ever did this for yourself...
But now you've left us cold and empty just like your own hell.

Follow in the footsteps like so many before you.
I thought you'd given up but now I know the truth.
I'm inspired by the fact that I still find joy in this.
But I'll never know what I might have missed.

I may not always agree, but the words you said have always had a profound effect on me.
And I, for now, can only hope, the punching bag that you've become won't lead you to a rope.

One last time I'll say all I mean,
I'd go back if I had a time machine...
