Lyrics

What goes down goes down even further on the knees to please anything that moves
And the world just passes you by on your cloud nine while you lay on your back with your legs up high
And what i thought was the truth is just bullshit and everything that you did proved to me just how low you could
Go on a scale for whores you've reached a new plateau

You are beneath me
You cannot touch me
Even with every brick in the world
You could not break me
An unclean progression
A spreading infection
You put your mouth to every hole in the wall and just wait for the injection

I'm pulling and grabbing at everything i can just to keep my head above water
And every time i reach my hand out you're there to push me back under
Did you ever think about anyone but yourself or does the concept go right over your head
Does your life revolve around all the money and wealth you can squeeze out of a man once he's been in your bed

I'm trying hard to let this all go
There's only one thing i'd like to know
Did you open your throat to let it all go down
Or did you spit it back out and let it fall to the ground

You are beneath me
You cannot touch me
Even with every brick in the world
You could not break me
An unclean progression
A spreading infection
You put your mouth to every hole in the wall and just wait for the injection

Everything is gone i have nothing left to give to you
Now everything is gone i just wanted something that's real
Everything is gone i have nothing left to give to you
Now everything is gone i just wanted something that's real
Everything is gone i have nothing left to give to you
Now everything is gone i just wanted something that's real
Everything is gone i have nothing left to give to you
Now everything is gone i just wanted something that's real
