  • You're hypnotized, can't see the signs
    I'd like to help you, but I think it's too late
    Made up your mind and now you're blind
    I guess it's easier than making mistakes

    Don't ask me why then roll your eyes at the answer
    You want to fight, but I won't bite at the page
    And I'ma try and change your eyes to the pain
    'Cause I will tell you

    So don't tell me what I can't see
    'Cause we both know it's you, not me
    You don't want this but it's what you need
    And you'll see it when you believe

    You'll see it, you'll see it
    You'll see it when you believe
    You'll see it, you'll see it
    And you'll see it when you believe

    Give me a break 'cause I can't take
    Another second, you're a fucking addict
    I need the time to change your mind
    How can I move you when you're stuck in your ways

    Don't ask me why then roll your eyes at the answer
    You want to fight, but I don't bite on the bait
    And I'm not tryin' to change your eyes from the pain
    I'm just saying, no I'm just saying

    Don't come crawling back to me when you break down
    'Cause you dug yourself into this hole all by yourself
    Don't come crawling back to me when you break down
    You can find somebody else

    So don't tell me what I can't see
    'Cause we both know it's you, not me
    You don't want this but it's what you need
    And you'll see it when you believe

    So don't tell me what I can't see
    'Cause we both know it's you, not me
    You don't want this but it's what you need
    And you'll see it when you believe

    You'll see it, you'll see it
    You'll see it when you believe
    You'll see it, you'll see it
    And you'll see it when you believe

    Yeah, hell yeah
    You make me want to slit my wrists and play in my own blood
    Yeah, hell yeah
    You make me want to kill myself just for the fucking fun
    Yeah, hell yeah
    You make me want to slit my wrists and play in my own blood
    Yeah, hell yeah
    You make me want to kill myself just for the fucking fun

    So don't tell me what I can't see
    'Cause we both know it's you, not me
    You don't want this but it's what you need
    And you'll see it when you believe
    And you'll see it when you believe Writer/s: JORDAN KEITH ATTWOOD FISH, LEE DAVID MALIA, MATTHEW KEAN, MATTHEW STEPHEN NICHOLLS, OLIVER SCOTT SYKES
