So you say that you have nothing to give but you give me a way to say you're much too uncontrollable,
Give it a rest and let me show you how it should be, and how it could be, if you didn't; sell yourself short with things that distort all reality, banality should be your new nickname
Your appearance may pass, but that will never last So before I witness tragedy I've got to cut all ties

You've been searching way too hard to find a way to take away the pain
you've inflicted on yourself, get help, but stay away from me
All the drugs might keep you up but you're going down

Yeah so I've got some hell to pay, for my mistakes, and all that I've taken for granted
Maybe I'll wake up wiser, maybe its time to get out of these habits they're so toxic that I can't breathe
Sorry just won't do, I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry
Save it it's no use, I'm sorry I'm sorry

You've been searching way too hard to find a way to take away the pain
you've inflicted on yourself, get help, but stay away from me
All the drugs might keep you up but you're going down

This is who you are, this is what you are
(Cause it goes on and on and on and on and on)
And it goes on and on and on and on and on
It can't go on and on and on and on and on
Oh it can't go on and on and on.....

You've been searching way too hard to find a way to take away the pain
you've inflicted on yourself, get help, but stay away from me
All the drugs might keep you up but you're going down x3

    General Commenti love this song.
    i think it's about someone who has friend that has serious issues but aviods them at all costs, like by using drugs. and the person is sick watching their friend dig themselves deeper in the hole, and tries to help them fix things, then opens his eyes to thats who his friend is and it's always going to be the same old story so they walk away.

    General CommentWhen it says "Save it it's no use, I'm sorry I'm sorry" it should be "Save it it's no use, believe me I'm sorry."
    Excellent song, I love the way Ryan Wickard sings "I'm sorry."
