lyrics

when there's a situation
they always wanna talk
to give some convoluted
reason why it was your fault
and then they take your silence
as a sign they're absolved
while you just sit there shaking
way too freaked out to respond

this is why i wanted out
this is a thing i have been carrying around
this is a mess no one else wanted to clean up
this is why i love you so much

you wonder if your weakness
somehow brought all this on
if hurting other people
is how you prove that you are strong
i read that fighting monsters
can turn you into one
your tactics start to look like
things your enemies have done

this is why i wanted out
this is a thing i have been carrying around
this is a mess no one else wanted to bring up
this is why i love you so much
