(Stop the man)
From endin' up with all the chips so he can't
(Promise him an only chance)
To have the freedom that's been takin' from me

(You can try to lift your head, no)
You fucked up with me, now live with the truth
Find a reason to lie (try)

Seems like it hasn't been long; I've given
(So much; how could you hide?)
You're sick with all the guilt; you're never forgiven
(You try to wash it away, wash it away)

(Ask again) why all the dreams I had
Are now left broken
(Punished for a wounded past)
Afraid to wake and find reality, breathin'
(Why has life been taken from me?)
I fucked up, and now I live with the truth
With no reason to lie (I)

Feel like it hasn't been long; I'm driven
(To keep myself alive)
You're sick with all the guilty; you're never forgiven
(You'll never wash it away, wash it away)

(How can you live with yourself?)
