Staring at a blank sheet
No words, no thoughts, no memories
I have sown the seed
But what has grown will always bring me to my knees
I'm a bastard liar
I'm a no-good thief and a calloused soul
You are the bee sting resting on the roof of my mouth
You're the absence of reason for the stories you told
Flood me with the same cause of death
Be it sickness or injury or from myself
Everything is imperfect
Everything is a hoax
I'm the out-group punchline of an inside joke
The cross you've stapled yourself to
Can't hold a candle to the hell I'll put you through
Turn your head and see mine swinging in my noose
I'm right by you

I am just like you 'cause I'm a dirty rotten thief and I'm a liar too
I am just like you
I will steal from the broken like the broken do

Hey, you don't understand
Make your bed with beggars hands
Hey, you don't comprehend
Make your bed with failed amends

We are the wolves amongst the herds of sheep
I am another liar in the den of thieves
I missed out on the way it should be
Another freak of virginity

Suffering all the same
(I will not be your victim)
Bury me in tragedy
(I will not be your worst mistake)
Suffering all the same
(I will not be your victim)
Cast me down among the thieves
(I will not be your worst mistake)

I will not be your victim
I will not be your soul to take
You will not be the reason I repeat all the same mistakes
I will not be your victim
I will not be your soul to take
I won't be your mistake
