Had Enough

  • Milk it for all it's worth
    Make sure you get them first
    The apple of your eye
    The rotten core inside
    We are all prisoners
    Things couldn't get much worse
    I've had it up to here
    You know your end is near

    You had to have it all
    Well, have you had enough?
    You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve
    When all is said and done
    I will be the one
    To leave you in the misery and hate what you've become

    Intoxicated eyes, no longer live that life
    You should have learned by now, I'll burn this whole world down
    I need some peace of mind, no fear of what's behind
    You think you've won this fight, you've only lost your mind

    You had to have it all
    Well, have you had enough?
    You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve
    When all is said and done
    I will be the one
    To leave you in the misery and hate what you've become

    Oh, oh, oh

    Hold me down (I will live again)
    Hold me down (I will break it in)
    Hold me down (better in the end)
    Hold me down

    You had to have it all
    Well, have you had enough?
    You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve
    When all is said and done
    I will be the one
    To leave you in the misery and hate what you've become

    Heaven help you

  • Nicole from Okemah OkI relate this song to my addiction. That's how it often makes me feel.
  • Mike from Falmouth, MaAwesome song off an awesome album.
  • Trenton from Flatwoods, KyThis is one of my favorites by breaking benjamin
    but i always thought it was about a relationship with a girlfriend; this explaination makes a lot more sense.
  • Robbee from Englewood, OhThis song is actually about greed from their old drummer. He try to sue breaking benjamin after leaving the band claiming "He wasn't paid for the songs he helped write. LOVE this song by the way.
