This is a song

lyrics

Right now is the second time you'll ask me
You're so paper thin its hard to believe
that I could ever think of you as one of my friends
Your downfall will be so hard I'll feel you
all the way down here at 10454
Its where I'll be all summer long
if you find the spine to apologize

And when you do I'll be waiting
to slam the door right on your face
Because I will never ever contemplate forgiveness
Just like you never had a spine to begin with

You've got my AB+ all over your hands
and tonight I see the negative in all of your plans
You can talk all you want, do whatever it takes
to keep the alcohol running through your veins
I can't help but to think I lost
You not only sold me out, you reinvented the term
But its ok, you never cared anyway
You're just another girl that I was wrong to think I could change
I was wrong to think you could change.

So set me up to take the fall and defend the coward while
I'm stuck in this fucking hospital
They can dress my wounds but you can't dress
the traitor in you

Here's a warning to the Eastern campus:
You've just gained a liar
I've got some good news for the Western pubs:
Your wallets are not about to get a single ounce lighter
You're a fair weather friend and you never will be
anything more than a leech to the party scene
So hold your breathe because its gonna be a long night
Don't say your prayers, just say your goodbyes
and I'll hear your cry from 10545.

You've got my AB+ all over your hands
and tonight I see the negative in all of your plans
You can talk all you want, do whatever it takes
to keep the alcohol running through your veins
I can't help but to think I lost
You not only sold me out, you reinvented the term
But its ok, you never cared anyway
You don't belong here
and don't you ever think we're the same.

This is my pain in an audible format
I hope you hear me so that you never forget
that you are living proof every hit that I've taken
was never worth the bruise
Is he still worth it now?
So let your lip quiver and let your heart shiver
and I'll see you in hell because you're just another
sinner like me

I'm ending this three year silence
Now the airwaves will carry my melodic reminder
This is me letting go of the violence
that tore us apart and put our friendship behind us
All thats left is your pathetic excuse for an apology
used where no forgiveness is due
But to tell you the truth, I'm so much better without you
A friend is lost, but my life will go on.
