I try so hard to keep it together
My blood runs cold
I clench my fists
(You know I did)

I’ll seize the day by the throat and watch it die
Last thing you'll see will be this face
Remember this face
This one’s for old times
This one’s for old times
You did this to yourself

I try so hard to keep it together
My blood runs cold
I clench my fists
(You know I did, you know I did)

I’ll seize the day by the throat and watch it die
Last thing you'll see will be this face
Remember this face
This one’s for old times
This one’s for old times

So empty inside
So empty inside
So empty
So empty inside
So empty inside
(You did this to yourself)
So empty inside

This is my counterstrike
Right here my call to arms
I’ve scarred my battle cry
‘Search and destroy’ you fucking whore
I’m burning down your house now
I hope to god you’re in your house now
Burn bright like a star, traitor
The sun smiles on your corpse, traitor

Your cries mean nothing
I’ll take my time
Your tears mean nothing
I’ll bide my time

I can’t leave you breathing
I can’t leave you breathing
I can’t leave you breathing

Oh the stories you'd tell
Maybe you'll learn
When the dirt fills your lungs
Maybe you'll learn
When the dirt fills your lungs

I am your nightmare
I am the shape in the dark
I am your ending
Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust
God knows I’ve had better

    General CommentI love Franks' lyrics, they're just so amazing,

    It's funny though because you listen to the songs and you experience that and its great and then you see the lyrics apart from that and i dont know, it just makes it so much better. It's actually what i loved about Pencey prep and i know that Pencey is dead and really that topic has no place here but i dont care because im a selfish bitch like that.
