I'm done, shoot your gun, 
I think it's time to take it back to where we started from, 
Your pain, my pain, 
I'll write it down and tell you exactly how I feel again. 

And all I see, 
Is a mass of confusion, who I am and what I gotta be, 
Yeah. 

Closed eyes, big lines, 
I guess you'll tell me just to let it ride sometimes, 
Looks good, tastes bad, 
Makes me wonder where I buried all the dreams I had. 

All I see, 
Is a less good version of a man I don't wanna be. 
All I feel, 
Is you tie me down to something that just isn't real. 
All I need, 
Is some truth god help me, 
Before the devil buries me. 

Yeah 

I can't do nothing, if I can't do something my way, 
Well I must be crazy if I follow every word you say. 
When the shit comes down, you'll be the first to walk away. 

[Chorus] 
Call the police, 
Cause I've lost control and I really wanna see you bleed. 

I'm awake, why wait? 
I don't need someone to tell me who to be today. 
I'm quite sure, unlike before, 
Came off the road and I forgot what I was looking for. 

All I see, 
Is a lees good version of a man I don't wanna be. 
All I feel, 
Is you tie me down to something that just isn't real. 
All I need, 
Is some truth god help me, 
Before the devil buries me, yeah. 

I can't do nothing, if I can't do something my way, 
Well I must be crazy if I follow every word you say. 
When the shit comes down, you're the first to walk away 

[Chorus] 

You can't just hack at me, you know, 
You might just, have to let me go. 
Close in, I need some room to grow, 
You don't, know what you're thinking of. 
Hiding behind you're pop sheet, 
So you, can reck someone elses dream. 

[Chorus] 

I can't do nothing, if I can't do something my way, 

Well I must be crazy if I follow every word you say. 

When the shit comes down, you'll be the first to walk away. 

[chorus] 

All I feel, 
Is you tie me down to something that just isn't real. 
All I need, 
Is some truth god help me, 
Before the devil buries me, yeah.
