lyrics

Oh why would you do anything you're told

The voice on air has got an even tighter grip on you


The noose on your neck has made its way around

Pointless words have worn us out

We're done with, all that shit


Who's pulling on your strings

Object all you want but it's not done

I count my lucky stars

I’ll never meet the best version of you


Why would you? Oh why would you?

Why would you?


Take everything, it’s yours

I’m tying up loose ends

I’m burning the rope


Never meant a single word you said

I’ve got nothing to prove

You took it all from me


Grow a goddamn spine of your own

And make amends with your feel good friends


Never meant a single word you said

I’ve got nothing to prove

You took it all from me


When all is said and done, it's all the same

The ignorance coursing through your veins

You or I — who takes the blame?

One goes up, the other tastes the flames


Call it an ending

Reach out for something withered

Sing to the masses

You're selling but I'm not buying

Should we run, we run, we run and call it quits now?

Well I’ll walk, not talk

I’lll take my time and walk on


Breathe in new life

Breathe in new

Breathe in new life


Take everything, it’s yours

I’m tying up loose ends

I’m burning the rope


Never meant a single word you said

I’ve got nothing to prove

You took it all from me


Grow a goddamn spine of your own

And make amends with your feel good friends


Never meant a single word you said

I’ve got nothing to prove

You did it all for me
