Lyrics

You’re pacing the room like you’re stuck in a cage
So desperate to get out of this place
It’s obvious that you want to escape
We’ll plan your attack and then run far away

He buried his seed so deep in your head
With echoed reminders of the things that he said
The game is over now and you don’t know which way to turn
This place is on fire and you’re happy to watch it burn

It’s no surprise
He lied when he told you
He knew what was good for you
No surprise
You wasted your time just trying to fight it
It’s no surprise
You struggle with demons he made you believe in
But this kind of life just won’t do

I know you’re afraid to be out on your own
But I’ll do my best to keep you from being alone
You have your freedom now
To be who you were meant to be
No need to look over your shoulder
‘Cause your secret is safe with me

So far away from the scene of the crime
I bought you an alibi so you wouldn’t have to lie
Remember when they come for you
All you have to do is tell them half the truth
And then come what may
We will find a way
To get ourselves out of this mess he made

It’s no surprise
He lied when he told you
He knew what was good for you
No surprise
He wasted your time
Now you can’t rewind it
It’s no surprise
You struggle with demons he made you believe in
But this kind of life just won’t do

The defense will claim you were blinded by rage
But the evidence was engulfed in the flames
We’ll find somebody else
Who can easily take the blame
And then we’ll get out of here
and never be seen again

It’s no surprise
He lied when he told you
He knew what was good for you
No surprise
He wasted your time
Now you can’t rewind it
It’s no surprise
You struggle with demons he made you believe in
But this kind of life just won’t do
No, no this kind of life just won’t do

One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever!!”
