  • Hmm,
    na na nana na na na
    na na nana na na na

    I'm stupid and confused
    My ego's raw and bruised
    Your words were weapons and
    They tore me down again
    Replay our conversation
    You threw your accusations
    I'm always so complacent
    I never change the station

    Help me find a sharper knife, I need
    to cut you out my life
    I take it all, I let it slide
    But hey, you went too far this time

    Congratulations, got what you wanted
    You're winning now
    Congratulations, you got your shot in
    You wore me down
    And I really don't think you get it now
    No, I really don't think you get it now
    It's killing me, I admit it now
    Congratulations, you tore my heart out
    Congratulations

    It must feel good digested
    To be so damn aggressive
    But the pounding in my chest is
    Begging for protection
    You think you're innocent
    Pure gold and heaven-sent, but
    My tears are instruments and
    They sound like consequences

    Help me find a sharper knife, I need
    to cut you out my life
    I take it all, I let it slide
    But hey, you went too far this time

    Congratulations, got what you wanted
    You're winning now
    Congratulations, you got your shot in
    You wore me down
    And I really don't think you get it now
    No, I really don't think you get it now
    It's killing me, I admit it now
    Congratulations, you tore my heart out
    Congratulations

    Save me from myself, 'cause I
    Need somebody's help
    Yeah, I dig the deepest wells
    And I get lost
    You, you got it all, I guess
    And me, I'll take the fall for this
    Oh

    Help me find a sharper knife, I need
    to cut you out my life
    I take it all, I let it slide
    But hey, you went too far this time

    Congratulations, got what you wanted
    You're winning now
    Congratulations, you got your shot in
    You wore me down
    And I really don't think you get it now
    No, I really don't think you get it now
    It's killing me, I admit it now
    Congratulations, you tore my heart out
    Congratulations
    Congratulations
