  • I'm not quite myself these days
    Guess we all come undone
    Time to time, in different ways
    Well, I have myself to blame
    Guess I don't understand
    I need help in many ways

    God's got a plan for me
    Well I'm gonna tell you one thing
    I don't got the patience or the time
    What can I say
    I'm no angel, I'm not forsaken
    But I can bleed

    Tear me open, I believe
    God will set you up to bleed
    And no one can deceive
    What is meant to be
    And bloody murder we will scream

    Well I guess it's time for me
    Tell me what I'm left to believe in
    'Cause I don't know the concept of the pain
    don't want the faith, I'll just lose it
    I can prove it
    Watch me bleed

    Tear me open, I believe
    God will set you up to bleed
    And no one can deceive
    What is meant to be
    And bloody murder we will scream
    God will set you up to tear me open

    'Cause I'm not giving up
    No self-control
    Suffocated to the bone
    I'm my worst enemy
    Who can't be saved
    I'm just His disgrace

    Tear me open, I believe
    God will set you up to bleed
    And no one can deceive
    What is meant to be
    And bloody murder we will scream
    God will set you up to tear me open

    These days are strange, it's true
    There's not a thing that I would change
    No mistakes that I'd undo Writer/s: Deryck Jason Whibley, Thomas William Thacker
