The sale
Most grand in history
Was done in pure deceit
The man in 30 years of debt
We're repossessed for it

By a world that's only
Numbers and a name
But I won't buy another day

So take this life, I'm over and done
Living for everyone
Pass these expectations
For someone else's dreams
This life, just who is it for
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away from me

The boy, innocent, naive
Was give and no receive
The soul or what seems to be left
Of me can feel the theft

Layer by layer
Inch by inch
my dream we were saved
But it hurts the pinch

This life, just take back this fate
And in my heart, it breaks
At least I won't have to cry
For someone else's face
This life, just who is it for
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away

Hey you, where were you
When it all went down
Did they buy you too
(Was it untruthful)
So much for the blues
My heart sings but
It ain't mine to lose
It's yesterday's news

Layer by layer
Inch by inch
My dream we were saved
But it hurts to pinch

The world has only
Numbers and a name
But I won't buy another day

So take this life, I'm over and done
Living for everyone
Pass these expectations
For someone else's dreams
This life, just who is it for
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away from me

This life, just take back this fate
And in my heart it breaks
At least I won't have to cry
For someone else's face
This life, just who is it for
'Cause it ain't mine anymore
You see little by little
They raped it away from me
(By you, by you, by you)
Yeah...oh yeah

Raped it away from me
Hey you, where were you
Hey you, where were you
Hey you, where were you

The sale
Most grand in history
Was done in pure deceit
