so many lies I've confessed,
so many lies made a mess.
pushed it all into something
pushed it all

you turned and everything went black
you turned and everything went black

wouldn't have tried to compete
wouldn't have lied but to keep
something told me you'd hurt me
somethings hold back

you turned and everything went black
turned and everything went black

you pushed it all so you'd never see it
you pushed it all
laughing and
you're pulling strings
dancing on the souls of the weak

you're so pretty, you are
you're so pretty

you turned and everything went black
turned and everything went black
you turned and everything went black
you turned and everything went black

I never sought power for power's sake.
cause power in the hands of a dangerous man is power in the hands of an enemy.
an enemy of yours and an enemy of mine
that manipulates kindness for his own personal highs
as he's counting lines, counting numbers
counting lines, counting lines, counting numbers
so don't look at me and sneer
'cause I am nothing like you
the difference is clear
I'm your nigger you built with fear
I hope I live to see the day
when your ideals go crashing away
to show you that your reflection is a cold
and as black
as the organs that pump blood to your veins
because you see, I never wanted to own you, or them,
or really anything
just me


but you pushed
pushed and pushed me
you pushed
pushed and pushed me
pushed it all into something black

    My InterpretationThe unedited version replaces "I'm your maker you built with fear" with "I'm your nigger you built with fear".

    General Commentheres some corrections to the lyrics
    "that manipulates kindness for his own personal highs"
    "cause you see, I never really wanted to own you, or them, or really anything. Just me"
