(stop the man)
fom endin up with all the chips so he can’t
(promse him an only chance)
to have the freedom that’s been takin from me

(you – can – try – to – lift – your – head – no)
you fucked up with me now live with the truth
find a reason to lie (try)

seems like it hasn’t been long – I’ve given
(so much how could you hide)
you’re sick with all the guilt you’re never – forgiven
(you try to wash it away – wash it away)

(ask again) why all the dreams I had
are now left broken
(punished for a wounded past)
afraid to wake and find reality breathin
(why – has – life – been – taken – from – me)
I fucked up and now I live with the truth
with no reason to lie (I)

feel like it hasn’t been long – I’m driven
(to keep myself alive)
you’re sick with all the guilty you’re never – forgiven
(you’ll never wash it away – wash it away)

(How can you live with yourself)

(chorus repeat)

    General CommentI love these guys, great music!
    As for the meaning of this song, right before they played this song on the radio the band introduced it and said that it was about one of the band members fathers (I don't know if it was Lajon) but its about how someone ratted on his father for doing somehting illegal and he is now in jail for that. So the song is about how the man who ratted now has to live with the guilt of essentially ruining part of a mans life.
    Just what I heard :)
