"Initiate" as written by Aurelio Valle, Wayne Magruder and Peter Gannon....
It's too late to try and take it back now
String me up and hang me upside down
How long before my head hits the ground?
This ain't easy for me

It's further from the truth, it may seem
I lied because I want you to believe me
I know I've got it coming, wait and see

Tell me, that's not how it's supposed to be
It's the last time I'll be on my knees
That's not how it's supposed to be

So sad, yeah, I ain't got much to show
How long before they start throwing stones?
Watch me as I'm pelted to the bone
And make a song for me

    General CommentTo me, it sounds like a last plea before a breakup. The guy lied about something big, and now he's getting dumped.

    General CommentI just wanted to mention that the last line is actually, "and don't be sorry for me", not (as is indicated in the lyrics provided) "and make a song for me."
    I think the song is about coming to a realization that the relationship has come the point of a dead-end, where the guy feels he has to lie in order to maintain the relationship and he's realized that "that's not how it's supposed to be." So maybe he should rethink his intentions and/or prerogatives. He's also acknowledging and accepting what the result of this is going to mean.

    at least that's what I hear. it's a great song.
