"What You Deserve" as written by and Dennis/stevens Wolfe....
Failing and unsure why am I losing my nerve
Wasting my time why do I only see this through the hurt

[Chorus]
I can't get it out of my head I can't get it out that
I do this to myself me and no one else
So help me tell me how to break free
I'm to blame and that's what really hurts
That's what really hurts
You get what you deserve

Jaded and broken
Out of place waiting my turn
Guilty fractured
And like you I don't know the answer

[Chorus]

I can't get it out of my head I can't get it out of my head
I heard the words you said to me

I do this to myself me and no one else
So help me tell me how to break free
I'm to blame and that's what really hurts
That's what really hurts
You get what you deserve

    General CommentI'm probably just stating the obvious, but...

    This is about the singer making a mistake and paying for it. It hurts even more to go through it, because there's no one else to blame. It's all his fault. When he says "you get what you deserve," he's talking about people in general, I think. Simple song, but I love it.

    General CommentI listen to this song alot... :P Anyways, for me it's about being really hard on yourself. "I do this to myself, me and no one else" He's nice to the rest of the world, but he is always finding a fault with himself.
