lyrics

You’ve got class,
but that won’t get you far, you’ll see.
You’ll find out for yourself.
You’ll find out through the misery.
And all those guys that you pick up to fill that void I left,
they’ll find out for themselves
just how insecure that you can be.

You’ve got high hopes
but your standards stoop so low
that they will never come true.
And you expect a ring around your finger?

Explain to yourself that it’s not you, it’s them.
Manipulate and you’ll shift the blame
without having to carry your own weight.

After everything you put me through
I can’t find it in my heart to forget you.
It wouldn’t let me if I wanted to.

You can tell me I was never there for you.
That everything I ever did reflected me,
when I everything I ever did reflected you. (were just to blind to see)
In the stress, I confess, I think less
cause you act like the best
while I’m left not comprehending
why you strive to be dependent.
You won’t change, you’ve made that clear.

His hands wrapped tight around your throat
and you know damn well you won’t do anything but choke.

After everything you put me through
I can’t find it in my heart to forget you.
It wouldn’t let me if I wanted to.

You’ve got high hopes
but with his hands wrapped tight around your throat
you won’t do anything but choke - you'll choke - so choke.
