I was blind till I opened up my eyes to see
And all this time I never noticed
All you ever had was hidden motives
You're just a curse
Another lie, another waste of my time

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

I'm obliged to forget you after all is said
And all this time I tried to fix you
Was just another way to avoid the issue
You're just a ruse
Another guise, another waste of my time

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

And no, no I won't get over this (it's a little too late)
I'm going insane (you gotta get, no, no I gotta get away)
Oh this is gonna fuck with my head
And I'll be looking for it in the end

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away
