  • if anyone was headed for the gates of hell i knew you'd be first
    i used to picture your obituary and i wished you the worst
    the danger of the playground
    the radio said you drowned
    and i'm sorry
    almost sorry

    no sympathy is given to the perpetrator charged with the crime
    im willing to admit that it feels good to be a victim sometimes
    and i wont ever get to thank you for the terrible things you said
    'cause i'm sorry
    that you're dead to the world
    where i hoped you would be
    never imagined you'd live on in me
    you gave me destination but i paid for the ride
    the place you punched my ticket left a crater inside
    where i cried (he cried)
    where i cried (you died)

    where i cried from the bruises
    learned to live with the scars
    now you live in the mirror
    when i look there you are
    you're the shadow on the faces of the ppl i meet
    have you claimed eternal shotgun in my passenger seat
    well i'm sorry
    almost sorry

    sometimes the best design is done by damage
    the accident can cease
    the rainbow still looks pretty when it bleeds
