Collect your bones
Man, did you hear the news?
The boy's back in town
And he reeks of the blues
Warm welcome home
To the bitter truth.
So someone spiked the drinks
With bad blood tonight
The venom takes control
I'm kicking down the door.
So fuck the invite
Spare me the small talk
Every second the price on my head grows
I'm dodging bullets from a gunman who everybody knows
I can hear you calling out
But it's a waste of your time
And I just can't bring myself
To slap a mouth that never shouts
So raise your glasses one more time
May the best man overdose on pride
I could destroy you
But not in these shoes
You lack the stones to be more than a metaphor
I saw this comming
Slow as an avalanche
Here's some advice for you next time:
Make sure you put at least two bullets in the head
So make this your last mistake
This is not a cheap shot
It cost an arm and a leg
So please give me something to shake
Something to lean on, something to shatter or break
I can hear you calling out
But it's a waste of your time
And I just can't bring myself
To slap a mouth that never shouts
I can hear you calling out
But it's a waste of your time
May the best man overdose on pride
So go ahead state your name
Next time there will be no next time
Next time there will be no
Next time there will be no next time
Next time there will be no

    General Commenti talked to their bassist darren on myspace about this song. its alot about trying to face yourself to change for the better. thats pretty much what the whole album is about.

    General Commentthe fact that idiots try to get a rise out of people on the internet never fails to make me laugh. i'd like to catch up with them in 10 years and see how little they've actually made out of their lives. find a better use of your time.
    to stay on topic, the bled is an amazing band with fantastic lyrics. this song is one of the best album openers i've heard in a while.
