  • I am done pretending
    You have failed to find what's left
    I will suck you dry again
    Some are not worth saving
    You are such a pretty mess
    I will choke the life within

    Now you want to take me down
    As if I even care
    I am the monster in your head
    And I thought you'd learn by now
    It seems you haven't yet
    I am the venom in your skin
    And now your life
    Is broken

    After the lights go out on you
    After your worthless life is through
    I will remember how you scream
    I can't afford to care
    I can't afford to care

    I am suffocating
    You have failed to pull me in
    I will drag you down again
    Life is unrelenting
    Feeding lies into my head
    I will feed the lies you live

    Now you want to take me down
    As if I even care
    I am the monster in your head
    And I thought you'd learn by now
    It seems you haven't yet
    I am the venom in your skin
    And now your life
    Is broken

    After the lights go out on you
    After your worthless life is through
    I will remember how you scream
    I can't afford to care
    I can't afford to care

    After the lights go out on you
    After your worthless life is through
    I will remember how you scream
    I can't afford to care
    I can't afford to care
    I can't afford to care
    I can't afford to care Writer/s: JASEN RAUCH, BENJAMIN BURNLEY

  • Nicole from Okemah OkThis song deeply speaks to me on a personal level, I relate "the monster in your head" part of the lyrics to my addiction and how before going into recovery how my life was broken.
