You've got your reputation
I've got anonymity
I've got my self-respect
You can't take that from me

You've got to protect your interests
You've got your enemies
I've got a hundred reasons
To expose your treachery

There is no happy ending
Only what remains to be

I want an explanation
I want an apology
You ruined everything
You tried to run away but you can't
I want to hear the answer
I want the opportunity
You wasted so much time
You tried to run away but you can't

You had your way of speaking
I was full of naivete
We had a common interest
And a trust based on a need
I've got my own ideas
I've got my integrity
You've got your binding contracts
You've got your misery

Your power and position
Your hunger and your greed
Walk on the backs of others
Toward the goals you will achieve

    Who hasn't wanted to scream that in the face of a shitty friend from time to time? Awesome song, awesome band.
