woke up in mourning,
the person that I was to become. 
I have been cheapened,
my words have lost value I am numb. 
I felt lonelier than a wreckage survivor,
floating scared and alone in the sea. 
left only with his thoughts
his thoughts to keep him company. 

you said you wouldn't lie,
I'm looking for reason,
you said you wouldn't lie,
something to believe in,
yet I have been shamed by you dishonesty. 

attempts have been valiant
at proving your worth to you and I. 
you have not learned yet
your worth is measured by what's inside

you said you wouldn’t lie
I’m looking for reason,
you said you wouldn't lie,
something to believe in,
you said you wouldn't lie,
yet i have been shamed by your dishonesty. 

you said you wouldn’t lie,
values were deceiving, you said you wouldn't lie,
so find some real meaning you said you wouldn't lie,
now that you’re naked, scarred, and alone. 

cause you’ll find truth in this. 
I'm not new to this.
I'm not new to this
no I'm not new to this

you said you wouldn’t lie
I’m looking for reason,
you said you wouldn't lie,
something to believe in,
you said you wouldn't lie,
yet i have been shamed by your dishonesty. 

you said you wouldn’t lie,
values were deceiving, you said you wouldn't lie,
so find some real meaning you said you wouldn't lie,
now that you’re naked, scarred, and alone.

    General CommentMy favorite song by Last Week that I've heard.

    It really provokes past memories for me about people I've known in a negative way.

    It's just a message to those who have wronged him and he's trying to get them to see what they did wrong. At the end, he is above them because they are now "naked, scarred, and alone."
