lyrics

I know that I was used, but that was what I did choose. I saw the signs and I knew my place. Shit I saw it written right on your face. But I thought the sex was good. I said my lines just like I should. I took the time and I knew you well and you sent me straight right back to hell. And you were my sun you were my shine. You seemed so pure, so genuine. But you took my pride and my happiness, and you pulled it straight right out my chest. So I’ll just open up my mind and let you in this time. And hopefully you’ll find out in the end that the punishment fit the crime. You’ll see what’s in store, you’ll be begging me for more, then I’ll pull it right out your god damn chest and show all these people what it’s for. So I’ll open my mind and let you in this time. Cause really all I cared about was for you to be a friend of mine. I thought you were the best. You were better than the rest but you weren’t even there to wipe the motherfucking blood from off my chest and I will just sell my soul. I’ll sell it to the devil. And I know he would let me win. And I could bask here in all my sin. You were my rock, you were my roll. You gave me hope and you gave me soul. Now is it do or is it don’t. Was I a clown? Was I a joke? Now I played the fool I do confess. I clinch my fist and I beat my chest. Should I be hung for what I wrote? Well I say go ahead, that’s my vote. So open up your mind and let me in this time. Hopefully you’ll find out in the end that the punishment fit the crime. You’ll see what’s in store, you’ll be begging me for more, then I’ll pull it right out your god damn chest and show all these people what it’s for. So I’ll open my mind and let you in this time. Cause really all I cared about was for you to be a friend of mine. I thought you were the best. You were better than the rest but you weren’t even there to wipe the motherfucking blood from off my chest and I will just sell my soul. I’ll sell it to King Devil and I know he would let me win and I could bask here in all my sin. I can be bartered I can be won. I am a song and I can be sung. Should I be hung for what I wrote? Well I say go ahead that’s my vote.
