lyrics

You must’ve misunderstood me when I said go drop dead, I didn’t mean “keep talking”
Well patience is a virtue and you’re not the virtuous type.
No, you’ve never been the patient kind
You must’ve given up on all that nonsense from when you had me convinced you were unique
Then again you never said it, like a fool I just let your eyes tell the story
I’m always letting lying eyes tell me stories

No way out, I won’t be here this time

(chorus)
It’s funny how I wanted to trust you, but you cut me off and it cuts through
You just do what all the other sluts do and you’re insincere
I guess I never really meant that much to you and personally it sucks who you’ve become and what you’re up to.
But you cut the ties and made it all too clear (so hit the bricks)

You took your fickle, fading moral code with you when you hit the road and now you’re looking in the mirror
Forgot to practice what you preached, sold out your beliefs after so long and now you’re here
I took a small amount of pity, you were new to the city and for years you would bide your time
But you could only wait for so long, now what I was after is gone and I don’t give a damn if I cross your mind

Wear your faith on your left sleeve and your sins on your right

(chorus)

It’s funny how I wanted to trust you (No!)
but you cut me off and it cuts through (Way!)
you just do what all the other sluts do (Out!)
and you’re insincere
I guess I never really meant that much to (Wear!)
you and personally it sucks who (Your!)
you've become and what you're up to (Sins!)
but you cut the ties and made it all too clear
