Thought you could face the world now you lost your nerve
All the things you held so close until the tables turned
And when I tried to warn you still you took the risk
How did I know we'd drift apart how did I know it would come to this
Now everything is over and it never will return
You're just a part of my life a memory I wanna burn
I could feel it ending you won't face the truth
I can't live with all your lies I can't take more of your abuse
No I can't take anymore Don't apologize to even the score
Hypocrisy and unity they're not just words to me
No I can't take anymore
Want to send you a letter just to put your mind at ease
I could write it up in the sky I still don't think that you could see
You won't admit that it's over you won't face the truth
I can live with all your lies I can't take more of your abuse
All the things you try to hide won't wash away
All the life you took from me you can't disguise will never fade
So don't look for the answers or somewhere to place the blame
There's nothing that can save you now
can't get back what you threw away

    General CommentI interpret song as a former friendship that went sour and he's been hurt by the relationship he's had with this person. He obviously wants to break off all ties with this other person, who is having more of a detrimental effect on him and a positive one.

    I can live with all your lies I can't take more of your abuse

    he can live with the memory of this person, but he doesnt want a friendship anymore.

    General CommentI always realized the lyrics to this song were misprinted in the album sleeve, and are now misprinted all over the "internet. He obviously says "how did YOU know we'd drift apart, how did YOU know it would come to this?"

    This song is about a fucked up relationship, and how he wishes he never wasted time with her
