Put Me Out

Album: Vulnerable (2012)
  • You bought your smile in a corner
    You paid a pretty little penny, you did
    You paint yourself in a picture
    As you deny the kind of person you've been

    You get what you feel, what you wish to be
    You can't live sarcastic sincerity
    You sharpen your guilt like a guillotine
    You get what you fear, you get what you fear

    I gave you everything, you threw it away
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette
    Love like a cancer, still you beg me to stay
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette

    Come on!

    You pop right in to the moment
    You paid a pretty little penny, you did
    You never noticed how broken
    As you deny the kind of person you've been

    You get what you feel, what you wish to be
    You can't live sarcastic sincerity
    You sharpen your guilt like a guillotine
    You get what you fear, you get what you fear

    I gave you everything, you threw it away
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette
    Love like a cancer, still you beg me to stay
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette

    Fear, you kneel to pray
    Live life on your knees embrace the disease
    Stop to breathe in, as you start to choke, your new life begins

    You put me out! Like a cigarette!
    You put me out! Like a cigarette!
    You put me out! Like a cigarette!
    You put me out! You put me-

    I gave you everything, you threw it away
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette
    Love like a cancer, still you beg me to stay
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette

    I gave you everything, you threw it away
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette
    Love like a cancer, still you beg me to stay
    Put me out like a cigarette, out like a cigarette

    You put me out!
    You put me out!
    You put me out! Writer/s: Quinn Allman, Jeph Howard, Robert McCracken, Daniel Whitesides, John Feldmann
