You I trusted your intentions a trust you took
Advantage of
Now you, are sitting in the hole that you dug
Around yourself

[Chorus]
You've lied so much you thinks it's true
Do you know what the truth is?
How does someone get to be like you
The king of all excuses

Is she your partner in deception or caught inside the web you've spun?
Did you forget that you were family, the damage you have done

[Chorus]

I trusted you
I trusted in you

This time your gonna get it
All the things you've done coming back to you
This time your gona feel it
Your conscience slowly suffocating you
In time you will regret it
Say goodbye to all the things
You've gotten used to
Life will find a way
To bring this karma to you
To bring this karma to you

[Chorus]

Everything must come full circle
It kills me that I feel this hurtful
I wonder what your children think of you
The king of all excuses

    General Comment:Mike Mushok Shows the really heavy side of Staind on this song..... he boasted once how the album would include a song with a slipknot-like riff and this song is undoubtedly it..... this song makes me want to headbutt a screwdriver thats how insane this song is...... It is definately about betrayal and the anger that accompanies someone who has something else in mind other than their best intentions when you put your trust in them and they violate it.

    General Comment:Seems to be a song about someone who is completely dishonest and untrustworthy, and how it all catches up with them. I also heard that it correlates with a Bible verse, a parobole I think.

    General Comment:seems more like a Korn riff than a slipknot riff. pretty cool though, i like the opening riff in Cross to Bear

    General Comment:This is a really good song. One of the best off the album. Yes i agree Mike does show a heavier side of his guitar work in this song and its awesome. I think the song is about how some people just tell lies and how it affects the others around them, including their families and friends.

    General Comment:I think this song has a hidden meaning/agenda they are trying to get out in this song.

    I mean, most of the meaning is correct, but I actually read on a website (can't remember what) saying that this was about Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. And when you actually look at the lyrics, it kind of makes sense.

    General Comment:Damn people, right when I heard the beginning to this song i just screamed in my head: "Korn!"

    This new album Chapter V has a lot of influences, and Korn is a big one for this song. Anti-christian messages, hard guitar.

    lol Damn it sucks that Brian left Korn though, who has found his cross to bear.

    General Comment:i always thought it was some thing along the lines of an old manager or tour manger or some one who has fucked them over big time by like cancling shows and taking the money for it or some it like that but the building thing sounds more true to the song!

    General Comment:I thought it was basically comparable to the song For you. Typical teenager - parent beefs. but overall yep seems like its about deceptionist.
