LyricsEdit

Johnny 3 Tears: I loved you, you made me
Hate me, you gave me
Hate, see, it saved me
And these tears are deadly

You feel that? I rip back
Every time you tried to steal that
You feel bad? You feel sad?
I'm sorry, hell no, fuck that

It was my heart, it was my life
It was my start, it was your knife
This strife, it dies
This life and these lies

And these lungs have sung
This song for too long
And it's true, I hurt to
Remember I loved you

Deuce: And I've lost it all, fell today
It's all the same
I'm sorry, oh
I'm sorry, no

And I've been abused, I feel so used
Because of you
I'm sorry, oh
I'm sorry, no

J-Dog: wish I could have quit you
I wish I never missed you
And told you that I loved you
Every time I fucked you

The future that we both drew
And all the shit we've been through
Obsessed with the thought of you
The pain just grew and grew

How could you do this to me? Look at what I made for you
It never was enough, and the world is what I gave you
I used to be love-struck, now I'm just fucked up
Pull up my sleeve and see the pattern of my cuts!

Deuce: And I've lost it all, fell today
It's all the same
I'm sorry, oh
I'm sorry, no

And I've been abused, I feel so used
Because of you
I'm sorry, oh
I'm sorry, no

Seems like all we had is over now
You left to rest
And your tears are dried up now
You just lay without a sound

Seems like all we had is over now
You left to rest
And my fears are over now
I can leave with my head down</span>

And I've lost it all, fell today
It's all the same
I'm sorry, oh
I'm sorry, no

And I've been abused, I feel so used
Because of you
I'm sorry, oh
I'm sorry, no

J-Dog: I used to be love-struck, now I'm just fucked up
Pull up my sleeve and see the pattern of my cuts
I used to be love-struck, now I'm just fucked up
Pull up my sleeve and see the pattern of my cuts

Deuce: (I'm sorry, no)

    • Though, J-Dog states in many interviews that the song is actually about the death of a close girlfriend/wife, and wasn't written from anyone's point of view.
  • A live version of this song is featured on Desperate Measures.
  • During live performances of the song, the raspy background vocals during the third verse are done by Charlie Scene and Johnny 3 Tears in place of Charlie screaming solo.
