Lyrics

Blame

Written By: Heath Rogers

Seperate my self from you
I couldn't take it, I couldn't fake it
I've come unglued

Now where do I go from here
Without you, I'm confined to
My alone, I fear

I blame you for why I hurt
I blame you for what I've become
I gave you everything I've ever had
I showed you all the little things I am
But you insist on trying to change me
Why do you insist on changing me

Sinking down my calms worn thin
I wont give into, I wont pretent to
Shelter within

Tear away my self esteem
You can't break me, You can't save me
So don't beg and pleed


Taste and Breathe

Written By: Heath Rogers

I can feel it in my veins
The strings I can't replace
These words that define me
The hate that surrounds me
Finding out who I am

I can Feel you
Taste and breathe you
I can feel you
Taste and breathe you

Lost my world inside
It all became the lies
I'm cought in the center
I've felt all the pressure
of finding out who I am

What about Me

Written By: Heath Rogers

So confused on how it's supposed to be
All your ways make no sense to me
Cought up in your world of lies
Myself, how can I define

Tearing away at my self esteem
Your trying so hard, trying to break me
Can't stand the way you make me feel
Can't deny the pain you bring is real
All the things I wanted to say to you
But I can't there's nothing left to do
I suffered, You took away

What about me
(suffering)

What is it you want from me
Why all the pain
What is it you want from me
Why all the shame

So cofused on how it's supposed to be
All your ways make no sense to me
Cought up in your world of lies
Myself, How can I define
Tearing away at myself esteem
Trying so hard, trying to break me
Can't stand the way you make me feel
Can't deny the pain you bring is real

I don't want it
I don't need it
