  • It's funny how I can give the best advice
    But I can't follow
    So I tell myself, so I tell myself
    It's funny how I can push the pills but
    But I can't swallow
    So I tell myself, so I tell myself

    Run... Run away

    Blame is a coward but self righteous
    A funny little creature hiding out in me
    Hate is power with a price tag
    A funny little creature screaming out in me

    (It's funny how the little)
    It's funny how the stories that I tell myself
    Leave so many things out
    Do I believe myself, or someone else?
    It's funny how I know what's wrong
    About everything and everyone else
    When I don't know myself
    When I don't know myself

    Run... Run away

    Blame is a coward but self righteous
    A funny little creature hiding out in me
    Hate is power with a price tag
    A funny little creature screaming out in me

    (It's in me)

    Fear is a liar
    Pleads right before
    If you fight your shadow
    You get lost in the war
    Ambitions are cheap
    Preach up to the whore
    Drunk or simple
    We always want more
    I always want more
    I always want more

    Lust is beauty in a bodybag
    A funny little bitch that's screaming
    "Just use me!"

    Blame is a coward but self righteous
    A funny little creature screaming out in me
    Oh, let me go! Oh, let me go!
    It's screaming out in me
    It's gonna get worse, before it gets better
    It's gonna get worse, before it gets better
    Bite down and
    Trust me
