  • It's like loving a lion that cannot be tamed
    I snap at the thought or the sound of your name
    Pulling teeth from my stomach you've been eaten alive
    My blood fills your lungs, my soul your inside

    My feet they stand on ashes
    From the fires that you've made
    Burning bridges
    Just to save your face

    If I say I wouldn't be hostile
    Could you say you would do the same
    If we're all made just a little bit broken
    Tell me who is to blame
    Tell me who is to blame

    I'm sensing a feeling picking wounds of regret
    That left alone there's no scarring ill dig and ill dig
    Scratching and itching I'll keep biting my lip
    From this pain that I'm feeling
    Picking wounds of regret
    A cut cannot heal
    Unless you leave it alone
    I'll open mine daily
    Leaving bones exposed

    Exposed!

    If I say I wouldn't be hostile
    Could you say you would do the same
    If we're all made just a little bit broken
    Tell me who is to blame
    Tell me who is to blame

    To blame!

    Standing on ashes from the fires you've made
    Burning your bridges just to save your face

    Wounds of regret

    If I say I wouldn't be hostile
    Could you say you would do the same
    If we're all made just a little bit broken
    Tell me who is to blame
    Tell me who is to blame

    To blame!

    We're broken, imperfect
    We were all made the same
    We're broken, we're broken, imperfect
    We are all to, blame! Writer/s: AARON PAULEY, ALAN ASHBY, AUSTIN CARLILE, PHIL MANANSALA, VALENTINO ARTEAGA
