It's my fault
I should have never let my guard down
Overcome by the distraction of it all
Confident seemed too high to fall
This moment played out like a movie, a movie

Was I wrong in thinking I was invisible?
Assuming that the first few shots just weren't enough
All my senses shot to hell
And in a minute I'll be gone
Thinking that I was invisible
Take it from me, one last look would be pushing my luck
So I stared

Thought I was silent, must have telegraphed my movements
He didn't have much else to aim for, point blank range
Jump cut me to the next scene
Here is proof of regretting
There will not be a caught part two
I'll see it's true

Was I wrong in thinking I was invisible?
Assuming that the first few shots just weren't enough
All my senses shot to hell
And in a minute I'll be gone
Thinking that I was invisible
Take it from me, one last look would be pushing my luck
So I stared

I wish I was indifferent, or hadn't caused a mess
The consequence in front of me will never see another day
If I did something different and hadn't caused a mess
A mess, a mess

Was I wrong in thinking I was invisible?
Assuming that the first few shots just weren't enough
All my senses shot to hell
And in a minute I'll be gone
Thinking that I was invisible
Take it from me, one last look would be pushing my luck
So I stared

    General CommentMan cant believe theres no post for this. wow. great song. i think its about a guy who may just b gettin over a girl. "Take it from me, one last look would be pushing my luck
    So I stared " And so he picks up a dirty lil habit like cutting and drinking. " Assuming that the first few shots just weren't enough
    All my senses shot to hell"

    and now he just wants to get outta this pain from the girl so hes gonna kill himself. He thinks no one cares and that hes "invisible"

    " Thinking that I was invisible" " And in a minute I'll be gone" and hes afraid his death will cause ppl some pain " I wish I was indifferent, or hadn't caused a mess
    The consequence in front of me will never see another day
    If I did something different and hadn't caused a mess
    A mess, a mess"

    dunno thats just me. great song tho.
