  • I've come so close, it's almost hard to believe
    When you're up close, it blinds you brilliantly
    Just one rush can change your life forever
    Just one push can end it all together

    Why can't we learn from the plague that surrounds us
    Learn from my mistakes
    Learn from this mistake
    Learn from our mistake
    Learn from their mistakes

    There's no shoulder to cry on when you have no shame
    There's no finger to point when you are to blame
    Open book, in my eyes shows you rain, then storming
    I can't look, when covered by the nothing and the suffering

    Learn from my mistakes
    Learn from this mistake
    Learn from our mistake
    Learn from their mistakes
    Learn from my mistake

    Believe me, all my friends, in the ending of the story
    There's no junkie out there with a happy ending
    It consumes you, and haunts you like the devil
    It's the art of the process that kills off all the rebels

    Learn from this mistake
    Learn from my mistake
    Learn from our mistake
    Learn from my mistake Writer/s: ANSELMO, BOWER, BROWN, KEENAN, WINDSTEIN
