I’m watching you wither, watching you fray
Wondering if you’ll make it one more day
You’re outside your element, inside my gaze
Looking for sun when the moon is ablaze

So I’m watching you quiver, and shiver and shake
You’re paying the price for your latest mistake
Why is it up to me whether you live or you die?
If nothing I do makes a difference, why should I try?

And if I could save you I’m not sure I would
You hurt me before and it didn’t feel good
A creature of habit, know no other way
You take all you can, and to you that’s ok

I know what you want, and I know it’s not me
So it would be best if you just let me be
Why is it up to me whether you live or you die?
If nothing I do makes a difference, why should I try?

If you’d let me I’d help you but you’ll just sit and stare
So why should I bother when I know you don’t care
Sometimes you seem harmless when doing your thing
But I’ve seen your fury and I’ve felt you’re sting

Part of me hates you, the rest understands
But why did your fate have to fall in my hands
And why is it up to me whether you live or you die
If nothing I do makes a difference, why should I try?
