  • If I'm a bad person, you don't like me
    Well, I guess I'll make my own way
    It's a circle, a mean cycle
    I can't excite you anymore

    Where's your gavel? Your jury?
    What's my offense this time?
    You're not a judge, but if you're gonna judge me
    Well, sentence me to another life

    Don't wanna hear your sad songs
    I don't wanna feel your pain
    When you swear it's all my fault
    'Cause you know we're not the same
    We're not the same
    Oh, we're not the same
    Yeah, the friends who stuck together
    We wrote our names in blood
    But I guess you can't accept that the change is good
    It's good, it's good

    Well, you treat me just like another stranger
    Well, it's nice to meet you, sir
    I guess I'll go
    I'd best be on my way out
    You treat me just like another stranger
    Well, it's nice to meet you, sir
    I guess I'll go
    I'd best be on my way out

    Ignorance is your new best friend
    Ignorance is your new best friend

    This is the best thing that could have happened
    Any longer and I wouldn't have made it
    It's not a war, no, it's not a rapture
    I'm just a person, but you can't take it
    The same tricks that, that once fooled me
    They won't get you anywhere
    I'm not the same kid from your memory
    Well, now I can fend for myself

    Don't wanna hear your sad songs
    I don't wanna feel your pain
    When you swear it's all my fault
    'Cause you know we're not the same
    We're not the same
    Oh, we're not the same
    Yeah, the friends who stuck together
    We wrote our names in blood
    But I guess you can't accept that the change is good
    It's good, it's good

    Well, you treat me just like another stranger
    Well, it's nice to meet you, sir
    I guess I'll go
    I'd best be on my way out
    You treat me just like another stranger
    Well, it's nice to meet you, sir
    I guess I'll go
    I'd best be on my way out

    Ignorance is your new best friend
    Ignorance is your new best friend
    Ignorance is your new best friend
    Ignorance is your new best friend

    Well, you treat me just like another stranger
    Well, it's nice to meet you, sir
    I guess I'll go
    I'd best be on my way out
    You treat me just like another stranger
    Well, it's nice to meet you, sir
    I guess I'll go
    I'd best be on my way out Writer/s: Hayley Nichole Williams, Josh Farro, Joshua Neil Farro
