  • I put a bullet in my radio
    Something just hit me funny I don't know
    Just pulled the trigger going down the road

    You slammed the door and knocked me off the wire
    Been walking lines and you've been burning tires
    Slow and uneasy ain't that what you like

    It's insane
    It's in vain
    You stay to maintain the pain

    I hear your name and man it burns a hole
    I swear I hate you but I can't let go
    The kind of damage that you can't console

    It's all in vain
    It's all insane
    I swear you'll stay
    I swear you'll stay to maintain the pain

    It's all in vain (I hear your name and man it burns a hole)
    It's all insane (I swear I hate you but I can't let go)
    I swear you'll stay (The kind of damage that you can't console)
    I swear you'll stay to maintain the pain

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnMy favorite song on Revolution, I live and breathe this song - very intense!
  • Samantha from Smyrna, Tajikistanto me this song is all about trying to move past someone who has repeatedly hurt you time and time again..like where she says " i hear your name and man it burns a hole- i swear i hate you but i can't let go- the kinda damage that you cant console"..to me- she loves this person but in a love/hate type of way..all he wants to do is cause conflict and she cant move on.
