You've got a dangerous background 
And everything you've dreamed of 
Yeah you're the Dark Angel 
It don't show when you break up 
And I'm the one who oughta know 
I'm the one left in the dust 
Yeah I'm the broken hear ted fool 
Who was never quite enough 

I'm an insider, I been burned by the fire 
And I've had to live with some hard promises 
I've crawled through the briars 
I'm an insider 

It's a circle of deception 
It's a hall of strangers 
It's a cage without a key 
You can feel the danger 
And I'm the one who oughta know 
I'm the one you couldn't trust 
Yeah I'm the lonely silent one 
I'm the one left in the dust 

I'm an insider, I been burned by the fire 
And I've had to live with some hard promises 
I've crawled through the briars 
I'm an insider 

I'll bet you're his masterpiece 
I'll bet you're his self-control 
Yeah you'll become his legacy 
His quiet world of white and gold 
And I'm the one who ought to know 
I'm the one you left to rust 
Not one of your twisted friends 
I'm the one you couldn't love 

I'm an insider, I been burned by the fire 
And I've had to live with some hard promises 
I've crawled through the briars--I'm an insider
