Friendly Fire

Album: Nothing More (2014)
  • I don't care about the story
    I don't care about the myth
    I don't care how you see my life
    You haven't witnessed it
    Use fear as a weapon, and pity as a whip
    Convince everyone around
    That I'm a piece of

    Give me a kiss
    You sold me out hold on, wait what did I miss?
    Gossip gets you off
    But you couldn't resist

    Make me a sinner
    Because you paint the picture
    Buy your believers, you couldn't resist

    We're on the same side

    Friendly fire,
    Honest liar

    Now here comes the twist
    You did this for me? hold on, wait what did I miss?
    Your good intentions? ha, ha
    What do you get out of this?

    Does it make you feel alive?
    Does it make you feel so high?
    How does it feel?, How does it feel?

    So you think it's your place
    And you think you're so brave
    I'll tell you now what I see
    A child's insecurity projecting
    From the sidelines, a critic
    A voice that won't admit it
    That you have never risked it
    How vicarious the cynic
    My Judas, my brother
