Verse #1​

I can see you standing there trying to act like you don’t care.
Pretending like it doesn’t hurt when all sycophants just treat you like dirt.
I can understand how you feel when people inflict wounds that are hard to heal.

Watch out, better beware
Watch out, better take care

They are out to control they are out to lead
On your weakness is what they feed.
And then they stand there and watch you bleed.

Verse # 2

I can see the sadness in your eyes as they stand there just telling you lies.
They think they know what is best for you but in reality they haven’t a clue.
They always question your identity with friends like that who needs an enemy.

Repeat Chorus

Guitar Solo

Verse # 3

Don’t throw all your burdens on me I can’t save you I’m not a remedy.
Don’t be sorry don’t let them start don’t let anyone take your heart.
You just have to fight you have to stay true cause no one else will believe in you.

Repeat chorus
