Guest Vocals on this track by Jarek Suttinger


You always said that words don't mean a thing
Just fight back with sticks and stones
Well I guess you took your own advice
When you left without a word and never came back home

I swear you'd be proud of the man that I've become
Without your help without you there
You're just so distant

The only thing that's constant is the change
Would you notice me if I were any different?

I'm just so tired of being milked dry
I can't keep faking a smile to hide behind
don't leave me in this place forever
I'm blindly praying that someday you'll make an effort

I'll never make the same mistake again
now I know that blood ties don't mean a thing
and maybe it's just selfish thing to think
That I could ever be something that someone could ever need x2

It's the days like this
When I most consider it….
Run the knife through my wrists
Until they're left hanging limp.

Stop telling me you understand what's going on in my head
I'm as cold and empty as the streets I walk at 3 a.m.
Sometimes I think I should have offed myself
When I had the chance

I'm sick of being useless
Someday I swear I'll prove it
I'm worth more than just another one of your past regrets
I’m sick of being useless
Someday I swear I’ll prove it
Someday I'll give you a reason to care
