Let me show you what it feels like
To be out on your own again
Everything was alright
When I could say you were a friend
But somewhere deep inside your soul
I knew something wasn't right
Why should I stick around this cursèd home
And let my heart pay the price?

My knack for sympathy's not
Working anymore
I must have used it up
But I'm not quite sure what for
And when your friends are gone
You won't know what to do
Payback's a bitch, you'll find
When it all comes back to you

All these walls are caked with dust
And this hallway feels so empty
I guess it doesn't seem like much
But this is what you left me
Not a bitter word went left unsaid
No sedative for the pain
The nightmare's over, I had to end it
'Cause this is you when chaos reigns

My knack for sympathy's not
Working anymore
I must have used it up
But I'm not quite sure what for
And when your friends are gone
You won't know what to do
Payback's a bitch, you'll find
When it all comes back to you

(Breaking news out of Anaheim: People can be cruel, heartless bastards. You could be one of them. Find out more tonight at 11.)

Phone shaking by my side
Pushing me to face the light
Sang every song to soothe
They became all about you
I laughed to laugh as you did
Smiled to believe that they were wrong
Supposed to stay together
We were supposed to stay together, whoa

Let's raise a toast to what could have been
And hold a wake for disregard
A vigil for the thoughtless minded
Grim dirges with no notes nor bars
No remnants of your final goodbye
Your lies all left extinct
Now you're gone and we're left standing
While we chant three cheers for anything

My knack for sympathy's not
Working anymore
I must have used it up
But I'm not quite sure what for
And when your friends are gone
You won't know what to do
Payback's a bitch, you'll find
When it all comes back to you
