Your face
Was never missed
You cleverness
And cunning words did not exist
Bitter bleak
Your fuckin weak
You know you dont deserve a thing
You fight for pride
To save your name
To heal the scars you waste to shame
Take the blame
Take the blame
Save it now so this can end
Cause there's nothing left to prove
To you

You've become the enemy
Let it go
Whoa, whoa
But you'll never take the blame
So let it go
Whoa, whoa

I'll tear it down
Arrogant
Sick of it
Flatter everyone you can
I'm pulling teeth
Cause talk is cheap
You lie regrets are elbow deep
So now its time
To chase the dream
With hand grenades and gasoline
Burn it down
Burn it down
Every gracious word you speak
Cause now I see right through
So fuck you

You've become the enemy
Let it go
Whoa, whoa
But you'll never take the blame
So let it go
Whoa, whoa

The time has come you know
To just let go
Just let it all go
And its not enough
That your handed everything
Still you smile to my face
But this time
I'll tear it down
I'll tear it down
And I'll tear it down
Cause there nothing left to prove
To you

You've become the enemy
Let it go
Whoa, whoa
But you'll never take the blame
So let it go
Whoa, whoa, whoa
You are your own worst enemy we know

    General CommentNo comments?

    This song I always play when I think about a guy that I use to be best friends with, and then one day, he randomly decided that he didn't want to know me anymore. He started calling me "emo filth" and all other hurtful comments.
    He won't admit what he's done though. Hes a very stuborn guy.
    For a while i seriously thought about changing the way I am so that I could have him back as a friend (we were very close you see), but then I realised:

    "Your face
    Was never missed
    You cleverness
    And cunning words did not exist
    Bitter bleak
    Your fuckin weak
    You know you dont deserve a thing
    You fight for pride
    To save your name
    To heal the scars you waste to shame
    Take the blame
    Take the blame
    Save it now so this can end
    Cause there's nothing left to prove
    To you"

    General CommentThis is my "Screw You" song
    It's basically my theme song for this one girl
    It's quite perfect.

    There are some errors here though...
    I think it's "Your face Is never missed"
    and "to heal the scars and ERASE the shame
    Dig the grave
    dig the grave"
    "i'll tear it down
    Arrogant
    SYCHOPHANT"
    "I'm pulling teeth
    cause talk is cheap
    and MY regrets are elbow-deep"
    And i think that's it

    but yeah, amazing song
    Story of the Year is my true love

    General CommentWho the crap?.....this song is about their former i think drummer, possibly guitarist, i think guitarist, he sued the band during the making of "in the wake of determination" and so they wrote a song about him, hence the title "sure your friends (the band) pay your enemies" and multiple song titles are diff on this then they lsited, this song is now pay your enemey, meathead is now jarhead, and i think thats it.
