How can you call me your friend? (How can you call me your friend?)
You run me around in circles. But your words slide off.
You lie, so I won't try to fight you.

These words they choke me. They resonate in my heart.
My soul won't let me sleep.

How can you call me your friend? (How can you call me your friend?)
You bleed me dry with slander. But your words slide off.
The grace that I have found without you.

These words they choke me. They resonate in my heart.
My soul won't let me sleep.

And I will rise upon your wings and I will rise above your wings.
Stabbing backwards on to you here
Falling backwards on to you.
And I will rise, rise above you.
And I will rise, rise above you.

    General CommentI love this song it reminds me a lot of the friends I've had that pretened just to be my friend when truthfully all they did was use me. Like the person my friends talked about me behind my back. "You bleed me dry with slander"

    General CommentThis band plays hella cool music.. Their words are so deep.. This cd was actually the first cd I've bought and liked every song on it.. The reason why I like this song so much is because it's says a lot about things with me personally.. Bands that could touch someone like that deserve all the credit in the world..
