Lay down, lay down with your drunken fools
I never thought you could be so cruel
And all the rumors I heard were true
You had another man in our room
Peel off the bandages from the wounds
I still have plenty of scars to prove
I'm sick of covering up the truth
So now I'm taking it back from you

From the start,
Drew a target on my heart
So you can throw your poison darts
You'll never kill, never kill...

You left the trail right from the start
Of bloody nails and broken hearts
And you keep tearing them apart
With bloody nails and broken hearts

Now I know fairy tales don't come true
When Cinderella don't fit the shoe
Someday I'll get back the love I gave
Someday you'll pay for the mess you've made

From the start,
Drew a target on my heart
So you can throw your poison darts
You'll never kill, never kill...

You left the trail right from the start
Of bloody nails and broken hearts
And you keep tearing them apart
With bloody nails and broken hearts

You left the trail right from the start
Of bloody nails and broken hearts
And I bet you thought I'd miss
Your bitter kiss

Your bitter kiss
Your bitter kiss
I'll never miss your bitter kiss
Your bitter kiss
Your bitter kiss
I'll never miss your bitter kiss

So now I'm taking it back from you
(So now I'm taking it back from you)
And now I'm taking it back from you

You left the trail right from the start
Of bloody nails and broken hearts
And you keep tearing them apart
With bloody nails and broken hearts

You left the trail right from the start
Of bloody nails and broken hearts
And I bet you thought I'd miss
Your bitter kiss

Your bitter kiss
Your bitter kiss

    General CommentI think that this song is pretty straight forward in terms of the meaning. He's dating this girl who has a history of breaking hearts. And she does exactly that to him - tries to break his heart. "right from the start" she tried to hurt him... and then the icing on the cake was of course, that other man in the room. But instead of being heartbroken over her, he realizes that she's an evil bitch, and doesn't want anything to do with her - or her bitter kiss - ever again.

    The line "Drew a target on my heart" reminds me of the line in their song This Suffering (from II) when he says "Like a target drawn across my chest"
    I think that the two songs have sort of similar meanings.

    General CommentI'm thinkin' maybe the fairytale line is a reference to the pezz song of the same name.
    Same girl maybe?
    I'd like to meet Ben's exes. And then never see them again. lol

    General Comment and I do think that it means that she is trying to break his heart and does just that in the end.
