Skeleton Heart

you said Iíd never amount to anything  
so I said I never wanted to be anything  
(all you have is nothing I care for,  
all you are is nothing I care for)
 
fuck your problems, and fuck your hate  
fuck your everything that makes you so great  
a burnt out star that fell from the sky  
with all your words having me rolling my eyes  
(Iím over, Iím over, Iím over your lies!)  
guess Iím the nothing that cares for nothing  

open up your scars  
I see through that skeleton heart  
the reason you crawl, the reason you fall  
forgive them not, forget them is best  
when all you have is imperfections  
they can be imperfectly perfect with my, goodbye
 

emotions become the depths of the sea  
locked away inside my chest, like Pandora  
(the horror!, the horror!)  
we are not one in the same  
inconvenienced by fate  
youíre as low as can be, feeding me misery  
(a fucking disease)  
thinking I needed your love  
it was only a wanting to belong  
for you it was only a means to an end  

open up your scars  
I see through that skeleton heart  
the reason you crawl, the reason you fall  
forgive I wonít, forget them I canít  
when all you have is imperfections  
they can be imperfectly perfect with my, goodbye
 
  
I had much love and respect  
but now just over the lost cause  
some people just donít get along  
so stay away, and Iíll do the same  
(wonít grab your hollow hands again)  
abuse, heartlessness and insincerities  
wonít ever get the best of me  
I opened up my door so many times  
but now itís closed forever  
(no need to pretend)  
this evil was dark, this evil clawed at me  
this evil was what you fed to me  
but now this evilís set free
