  • Falling on my face again
    So I know I'm right on track
    It's hard for me to make amends
    When you stab me in the back
    Sail it on to another sorry shore
    Talking shit, say I'm your filthy little, filthy little
    Like I just happen to be in the right place right time
    Just settle down

    I earned my place with the tidal waves
    I can't escape this feeling that something ain't right
    I called my name as I crashed the gates
    Still I can't escape this feeling that something ain't right
    Why don't you think before you speak?
    'Cause you don't know me at all
    You don't know me at all

    Tell me how you really feel
    Write it on the bathroom wall
    If anyone was watching
    I know you'd say nothing at all
    Treading water, yeah, you're angry and you're bored
    But I'm sick of this, I'm just your filthy little, filthy little
    Like I just happen to be at the right place right time
    Oh, would you settle down?

    I earned my place with the tidal waves
    I can't escape this feeling that something ain't right
    I called my name as I crashed the gates
    Still I can't escape this feeling that something ain't right
    Why don't you think before you speak?
    'Cause you don't know me at all

    Spread your lies like fireflies
    In a wild hot summer, trying to pull me under
    You sharpen words to use like knives
    When you lose your colour, there'll be nothing left

    I earned my place with the tidal waves
    I can't escape this feeling that something ain't right
    I called my name as I crashed the gates
    Still I can't escape this feeling that something ain't right
    Why don't you think before you speak?
    'Cause you don't know me at all
    You don't know me at all
    You don't know me at all
    You don't know me at all
    You don't know me at all Writer/s: ALEX GASKARTH, JOHN FELDMANN, SIMON WILCOX
