Reach inside and pull out the embers
Throw away my everything
Reach down deep and feel the cinders
Giving off their glow and heat
A reminder of what I used to be
You take it (everything)
I take it (what do you want from me?)
You faked it (and I'm left behind)
Alone and naked I am blind
I tell myself that I will see
I tell myself that next time I will refuse to
Keeping my mouth shut
I don't want you to scream at me
Keeping my mind shut
Because God forbid I should think
Reach inside and take it apart (everything!
You've stilled the beating of my heart ( I guess I owe you everything!
Go ahead, take it (you know you're going to!
I'll take it (I have no choice left but to!
You faked it (I am left with nothing!
Cowering in my fear, I tell myself through my tears
That I will see, that I will see, that I will see...
I WILL REFUSE TO BELIEVE
I CAN'T ACCEPT YOU
I WON'T ACCEPT YOU
I DENY YOU
Take a good look at me and
TELL ME IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU'VE CREATED
TELL ME IF IT FEELS GOOD TO MAKE ME HATE YOU
TELL ME IF YOU GET A RUSH EVERY TIME I MAKE A CUT
Nothing to show, spent and gone, so used up
Next time I will refuse to believe...
