I'm not wishing anymore
I'm not writing songs for you
I sleep better in the dark
I'm not doing this for you

This is because of you I don't believe
Tongue tied an institute of my relief
You're my, my reason to shame
(my reason to shame)

I'm not wishing anymore
I'm not writing songs for you
I sleep better in the dark
I'm not doing this for you

This is because of you I don't believe
Tongue tied an institute of my relief

One wish that this is over
You are all I waste today
(discarded worthless throw it away)

Will it tear you apart?
Will it?
Will it tear you apart?

(When I turn and walk away
abandon, its not worth the effort
When Stalling means
Too fucking scared to create
abandon, its not worth the effort
When stalling and too scared)

One wish that this is over
You are all I waste today
(discarded worthless throw it away)

Will it tear you apart?
Will it?
Will it tear you apart?

When I turn and walk away
I'm not holding onto this
I'm not wasting words on you
I sleep alone in spite of it
I'll do anything for you

This is because of you I feel relief
Tongue tied to investigate what I believe
You're my, my reason to blame (my reason to blame)

I'm not holding onto this
I'm not wasting words on you
I sleep alone in spite of it
I'll do anything for you

This is because of you I feel relief
Tongue tied to investigate what I believe
You're my, my reason to blame (my reason to blame)

    General Commentwhenever i hear this song i think about someone who you love stabbing you in the back.

    (discarded worthless throw it away)
    i think this means like you dont give a shit about me and dont care what happens to me.

    Will it tear you apart?
    Will it?
    Will it tear you apart?
    i think this means will the guilt of what you did to me haunt your conciense (cant spell)

    i dunno that is just my opinion

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I agree with WouldItBeYou. I can really relate to this song in the fact of someone stabbing you in the back. It sounds kinda like one of those spiteful things when they are singing "Will it tear you apart?". Like they're saying, "C'mon, is it going to tear you apart, huh?" That's kinda the message I get, kinda spiteful. And the title of the song is After Dinner Payback. So, I guess it works.

    General CommentOk i'm tired of it i mean from autumn to ashes is my second favorite band but what im tired of is people calling them "fata" they talked about how not to say "fata" they came up with a long name so use it they say and if ur gonna call them "fata" just dont call them anything

    and o yeah this song fucking kicks ass

    General CommentThis song is about being in a relationship with someone that didnt work out and you still have feelings but they dont at all. throughout the song he is telling himself he is over it and will not let it bother him any longer and then at then end ,
    "I'll do anything for you", lets you know he is not over it. im feeling that now and it sucks. just wish i had a way to get it off my chest like from autumn to ashes.......

    SEE THEM LIVE !!
