Album: Am I the Enemy? (2011)
  • No one said that this would be easy
    I think we're past the point of achieving
    Any common ground in believing
    I've can work this out

    I used to look to you for direction
    That was before I saw the deception
    That was hidden behind your eyes
    That was just your empty pride

    If you gain the world by trading your soul
    (If you gain the world, if you gain the world)
    Remember you'll reap just what you sow
    (If you gain the world, if you gain the world)
    There's no one left to save you now
    You'll get what you deserve your own place in hell

    Lost your way it made you change it made you dark
    But once upon a time you spoke from the heart

    If you gain the world by trading your soul
    (If you gain the world, if you gain the world)
    Remember you'll reap just what you sow
    (If you gain the world, if you gain the world)
    There's no one left to save you now
    You'll get what you deserve your own place in hell

    Blinded by big city lights
    I'm not saving you tonight
    I know that's what you live for
    You'd rather die than end a fight
    Rather suffer than be right
    I know that's what you live for

    I know that's what you live for

    If you gain the world by trading your soul
    (If you gain the world, if you gain the world)
    Remember you'll reap just what you sow
    (If you gain the world, if you gain the world)
    There's no one left to save you now
    You'll get what you deserve your own place in hell

    Your own place in hell. Writer/s: JOHN FELDMANN, RONNIE WINTER
