(I guess the only reality is the one you seem to believe in.
Well I'm walking out, this is the last time, I feel like shit.
This isn't the way to treat old friends...)
Let's go again
Set me up
Watch me stand on top of my old house
Watch me spinning and watch me seeing the melon sky
Oh, look it's so beautiful tonight
But I was feeling so sweet
I could barely breathe so deep
But you had to come along
You had to shatter everything
Why'd you even fuck her in the first place?
Friends don't mean a thing when you can actually feel the knife sticking in your spine
For a second there I thought I was fine
But oh, whatever
I've tasted my own blood, and now every time you walk on by, I feel like spitting in your eye
This is not the way I pictured getting hurt.

    General CommentI didn't really like this song since i first heard it but after reading the lyrics i was prooved wrong about there being a bad saves the day song. This is the only song that was justifying that

    General CommentI really like the first part of this song,the part in parenthesis. The way Chris sings it really gets you. I think this song is about backstabbing.

    General CommentThis is such a good song!! Chris really gets back with his words. "I've tasted my own blood and now everytime you walk on by I feel like spitting in your eye. This is not the way I pictured getting hurt." Oh man that's so evil!! I love it!!! "Friends don't mean a thing when you can actually feel the knife sticking in your spine"

    General CommentI think that this is a cover song, although I'm not 100% about that... might be worth looking into.
