lyrics

How does it feel
to know you can't heal yourself?
Do you taste blood when
you tread on the ones who help?
I always said I'd dance on your grave
my friend.
Because you always had
such violent intentions.
I always tried
to give you a chance to run,
but you said I was heartless
when you held the gun.

And you pretend you're a martyr
Burning up at the pyre
and when the smoke touches your tongue
you're gonna know you're the one--
the one who
started the fire

You always said
you'd come around clean in the end
and we walk on eggshells
by morning they're broken again
and in spite of everything
you're out there burning
the bridges I've tried to defend
And the slap to my face
keeps us running in circles
all over again

(chorus)

I always said
I'd dance on your grave my friend
because you couldn't keep
a level head
and I got the blame
for the damage you made
but you are the fool going up in the flames--
I tried
to save you
I tried
to save you
I tried
to save you
every time

Chorus
