FORGET YOUR PAST.

Suckled on a saccharine teat,
Spoon-fed half-truths, to lull you to sleep,
Sugar coated, Overdose, It's grotesque, so bloated on fantasy.

I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF
I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF

Reality's too bitter a pill for you to swallow, so you wallow in your fairytale world,
Medicated misery and ceaseless sorrow, you carved out your own personal hell

Not a soul in the world you can blame but yourself,
You carved out your own personal hell,
It's a long way down to the bottom of the barrel,
Scraping 'til your fingers wear down to the bone,
Who needs enemies with friends like these?
This is killing us both, stop I'm begging you please

I hope I never see your face again
I'll miss you like the rope you've tied around my neck

I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF
I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF
I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF
I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF

Suckled on a saccharine teat
Spoon-fed half-truths, to lull you to sleep
Sugar coated, Overdose, It's grotesque, so bloated on fantasy

*Alex Dench*
Reality's too bitter a pill for you to swallow, so you wallow in your fairytale world
Medicated misery and ceaseless sorrow, you carved out your own personal hell

I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF

*Alex Dench*
I CAN'T REDEEM YOU, SAVE YOUR SELF

Tell me why you can't look me in the eyes
It's been weeks since you let me touch you
Since we slept in the same bed, what goes on inside your head?
When I'm away you're at the end of the line at 3AM
You're the scratch on the roof of my mouth I can't quite itch
You're the crick in the back of my neck that they can't fix

So bittersweet, such a tragedy,
I can't believe this is happening again.

SAVE YOURSELF, FROM YOURSELF
