Talk we'll work this out
I don't need to shout
I just need to scream
So stop telling me I'm not the man that I should be

You blame me, shame me
You take it all, out on me
So stop telling me I'm not the man you should believe

If dying is your way out
Then count me in I'm coming
Maybe your difference and
And I'm so used to being a coward
It's all I've ever been
I quite before I win

You can't call for help
You can't make a scene
Stop acting out
Like you're the one that's meant to be

Take me, hate me
But you can't make me come clean
So stop telling me I'm not the man you should believe

If dying is your way out
Then count me in I'm coming
Maybe your difference and
And I'm so used to being a coward
It's all I've ever been
I quite before I win

I'd like to keep cutting
I'd like to keep cutting
But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

I'd like to keep cutting
I'd like to keep cutting
But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

I'd like to keep cutting
I'd like to keep cutting
But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

I'd like to keep cutting
I'd like to keep cutting
But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

If dying is your way out
Then count me in I'm coming
Maybe your difference and
And I'm so used to being a coward
It's all I've ever been
I quite before I win

    Lyric CorrectionI hear it like this..might not be right either.

    Talk won't work this out
    I don't need to shout
    I just need to scream
    So stop telling me I'm not the man that I should be

    You blame me
    Shame me
    You take it all out on me
    So stop telling me I'm not the man you should believe

    If dying is your way out
    Then count me in I'm coming
    May be your different spin
    And I'm so used to being a coward
    It's all I've ever been
    I quit before I win

    Stand tall and fight this out
    You can't call for help
    You can't make a scene
    Stop acting out
    Like you're the one that's meant to be

    Take me, hate me
    But you can't make me come clean
    So stop telling me I'm not the man you should believe

    If dying is your way out
    Then count me in I'm coming
    May be your different spin
    And I'm so used to being a coward
    It's all I've ever been
    I quit before I win

    I'd like to keep cutting
    I'd like to keep cutting
    But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

    I'd like to keep cutting
    I'd like to keep cutting
    But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

    I�d like to keep cutting
    I�d like to keep cutting
    But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

    I'd like to keep cutting
    I'd like to keep cutting
    But I can't stand to watch myself bleed

    If dying is your way out
    Then count me in I'm coming
    Maybe your difference and
    And I'm so used to being a coward
    It's all I've ever been
    I quit before I win

    Talk we'll work this out
    I don't need to shout
    I just need to scream
    So stop telling me I'm not the man that I should be

    You blame me, shame me
    You take it all out on me
    So stop telling me I'm not the man you should believe

    If dyin' is your way out
    Then count me in I'm coming
    Maybe you'll difference me
    And I'm so used to being a coward
    It's all I've ever been
    I quit before I win

    Stand tall and fight this out
    You can't call for help
    You can't make a scene
    Stop acting out
    Like you're the one that's meant to be

    So take me, hate me
    You can make me complete
    So stop telling me I'm not the man you should believe

    If dyin' is your way out
    Then count me in I'm coming
    Maybe you'll difference me
    And I'm so used to being a coward
    It's all I've ever been
    I quit before I win

    I'd like to keep cutting
    I'd like to keep cutting
    But I can't stand to watch myself bleed[x4]

    If dyin' is your way out
    Then count me in I'm coming
    Maybe you'll difference me
    And I'm so used to being a coward
    It's all I've ever been
    I quit before I win
    I quit before I win
    I quit before I win

    General Commenti really think he's saying "talk won't work this out, i don't need to share, just need to scream."

    Lyric CorrectionThe intro lyric is,

    Talk won't work this out.
    I don't need to shout
    I just need to scream
    So stop telling me I'm not the man that I should be

    General CommentDefinitely missing the "stand tall and fight this out" part of 2nd verse.

    First line is absolutely "talk won't work this out."

    Chorus should have the line "Maybe a different spin" instead of the "maybe your difference and."
    Come on, "Maybe you're difference and" doesn't even make sense in any way. Common sense, people.

    My InterpretationFavorite song on the album, of course next to "My Swagger", but the song is obviously a reflection upon himself.

    General CommentIs it just me, or do the lines "I'd like to keep cutting, but I can't stand to see myself bleed" seem intentionally backwards? Like people who cut usually WANT to stop, but feel a need to see themselves hurt/bleed. Just thought that was interesting.
