Lyrics © Matthew Shufelt

Well it’s hard at first to live without you
Please take away this pain
Look what I’ve done, I’ve become a monster
Look at the things I say
Should’ve seen this one coming
If you had only known that I was around
How could you be so condescending?
I see it in your smile
I’m a man and I need to control you
Then dispose of you
If you try to hide these lies, I’ll fall
I need to break out

Live my life on my own ('Cause it’s over)
If I died would you care? (I still love her)
Keep these things to yourself ('Cause it’s alright)
I need a place I can go just to get by

I’ll break the mode that’s become of us
I’m the last in line who could break your trust
I’m leaving, I’m breaking down
If I had one shot to go back in time
Could I change what I said, could I change your mind?
No matter how hard you try, you will find a way out
If you think that it’s alright


from Sugar of Lead, released February 8, 2013
