lyrics

Disguise your intentions, friend
Dress them up in white
Parade artificial innocence
So you can sleep tonight
You fucked my trust up
Now I'm back where I started
I'm making friends
But it's all so half hearted
I'm torn like the skin on my back
Between forced forgiveness and a plan of attack

No one lives here anymore
Newspaper lines the windows and we boarded up the doors
I was told that we're in this together, even if the light it dim
Instead you left me waiting on the outside looking in

They told me, "It's better to be safe than sorry
It's easier to forgive than forget"
Well I don' think we forgive
We just learn to live with it
They told me, "It's better to be safe than sorry
It's easier to forgive than forget"
Well I don' think we forgive
We just learn to live with it

These days are too shortly numbered to only occupy
A small space in your mind
So give up, give up
Memories may rust
But their marks still hang around
But if I get up and leave now
I can start rebuilding this home
And pull myself out of Stockholm syndrome

They told me, "It's better to be safe than sorry
It's easier to forgive than forget"
Well I don' think we forgive
We just learn to live with it
They told me, "It's better to be safe than sorry
It's easier to forgive than forget"
Well I don' think we forgive
We just learn to live with it

You shed your skin, I've grown into mine
Scrapes and bruises never got left behind
I can't change these aspects
But I can choose where I go
Bridges to ashes, trust to dust
I waited for the healing but I never adjusted
You've got your friends
And I've got time on my side
You shed your skin, I've grown into mine
Scrapes and bruises never got left behind
I can't change these aspects
But I can choose where I go
Bridges to ashes, trust to dust
I waited for the healing but I never adjusted
You've got your friends
And I've got time on my side

They told me, "It's better to be safe than sorry
It's easier to forgive than forget"
Well I don' think we forgive
We just learn to live with it
They told me, "It's better to be safe than sorry
It's easier to forgive than forget"
Well I don' think we forgive
We just learn to live with it

We just learn to live with it
We just learn to live with it
We just learn to live with it
I'm learning to live with it
