about

This song was about dealing with someone in my life who I thought was good for me, when in reality they were hurting me more than I knew. It’s a commentary on everything that would happen in that sort-of abusive relationship. It’s about continuing to go back to that person because you feel safety and comfort in something you already know. I guess a look at the struggle of finally being able to get rid of that.

There are a lot of early 2000’s riffs and harmonies in this song. We were trying to make something really big and powerful to back up the message of the song, and we definitely nailed that here. - Mark

lyrics

You made it crystal clear
And I don't need your explanation
It's not like you to care
Just go ahead and play the victim

String me along, one more time for your own sick pleasure
Tell me once again, everything I already know to make yourself feel better
I know plain as day, you only say these things to make me go away

You were my security, you made me happy
You have no integrity, you only have self-pity
What am I to say to you, when I know what you've been through
You can never be wrong, and that's how you're wrong

You made it crystal clear
And I don't need your explanation
It's not like you to care
Just go ahead and play the victim

I could always understand the places you could be
But your selfish and broken, and you think that it's healthy
This isn't a shot at your grief
But living in the past won't change history

I know that you're two-faced
But I can't ignore the pretty one
And how can you live yourself
Knowing you do this just for fun
