  • Before you ask for something better
    You should know I'm practiced at goodbyes
    Are you so deprived
    Think you're doing me a favor
    I don't need no lesser savior
    I'm doing fine

    Fragile things so close together
    Taped up broken from before
    Part of something or all of nothing
    A very long hard way to fall

    Go then, if you don't feel right
    Living in our home
    Choking, eat your pride, eat your pride alone

    Go then, if you don't feel right
    Living in our home
    Choking, eat your pride alone

    Needless tension, the walls around you
    Built before you came to tear them down
    It was you I found
    Take some time to think it over
    If it's so hard to walk this road we mind
    Then it's time to say goodbye

    Fragile things so close together
    Taped up broken from before
    Part of something or all of nothing
    A very long hard way to fall

    Go then, if you don't feel right
    Living in our home
    Choking, eat your pride, eat your pridealone

    Go then, if you don't feel right
    Living in our home
    Choking, eat your pride alone

    So go then, if you don't feel right
    Living in our home
    Choking, eat your pride, eat your pride alone
    If you don't feel right
    Living in our home
    Eat your pride alone Writer/s: Jerry Cantrell, Michael A. Inez, Sean H. Kinney
