  • You chose to take from the past
    You want a game that's built to last
    'Cause love without affection
    Is hate without the pain
    Life is a connection
    Separate from the brain
    You chose to take from the past

    Can't you see the pain in my eyes?
    Can't you see the betrayal in disguise?
    I can't live with all your lies again
    I can't trust anything, even you, my friend

    You wanna live in the past
    You'll do anything to make your pain last
    'Cause love without affection
    Is hate without the pain
    Life is a connection
    Separate from the brain
    You just take from the past

    Can't you see the pain in my eyes?
    Can't you see the betrayal in disguise?
    I can't live with all your lies again
    I can't trust anything, even you, my friend

    Run away, go away, run away, go away
    Run away, go away, run away, go away
    Run away, go away, run away, go away
    Run away, go away, run away, go away

    Run away, go away, run away, go away
    Run away, go away, run away, go away
    Run away, go away, run away, go away
    Run away, go away, run away, go away

    Can't you see the pain in my eyes?
    Can't you see the betrayal in disguise?
    I can't live with all your lies again
    I can't trust anything with you, my friend

    Can't you see the pain in my eyes?
    Can't you see the betrayal in disguise?
    I can't live with all your lies again
    It's the end Writer/s: James Shaffer, Jonathan Davis, Raymond Luzier, Reginald Arvizu, Ross Robinson

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjMaybe.................Loving someone just for the sex, is kind of like hating the person. You just don't know about it, so there's no pain. You're just using them for sex, so you're happy. I guess...that's all I can think of.
  • Zero from Nowhere, Nj"Love without affection is hate without the pain," just seems like a throwaway line. I just can't seem to form a meaning to it. I think Mr. Davis should have spent a little more time on his lyrics...
