I've been sitting on something for a long time
You pulled it out from under me at the wrong time
What you did to me, it's not your first crime
What makes it worse is it's all on my dime

Fight all day
You're not hearing what I say
Stay all night
And you'll never know what's right
Cause the message on the line
Is the lesson that I should've learned that last

What you want is what you get
When you start with a promise but you end with a threat
What you want you'll never get
Cause you haven't dragged me down to the bottom with you
Not yet

I've been staying low waiting for a bad sign
You're always praying for clouds not sunshine
You keep saying no, it's not your worst line
Go ahead if that's the way it has be fine

Stay and fight
Cause you think you know what's right
All night and day
I don't wanna hear you say
That the message on the line
Is the lesson that I should've learned that last time

What you want is what you get
When you start with a promise but you end with a threat
What you want you'll never get
Cause you haven't dragged me down with you

I don't care what you mean to say
I know I might find out some day
What makes you tick, what makes you high
But now I just want off this ride
Cause maybe you're so sick this time
You'll spit out all your stupid tragic lies

What you want is what you get
When you start with a promise but you end with a threat
What you want you'll never get
Cause you haven't dragged me down to the bottom with you
Not yet

What you want is what you get (you want it)
When you start with a promise but you end with a threat (you want it all)
What you want you'll never get (you want it)
Cause you haven't dragged me down to the bottom with you
Not yet (you want it all)
