lyrics

It is not about trying to change your mind
and it is not about the past you left behind
or how cannot sleep because you meant so much.
It's about your mind; what you're afraid to touch.

What you're afraid to touch.

If you don't get what you want, you don't want anyone with it too.
There's more than one on this planet and we know that as well as you.

You want to be right.
You want to be right.
You want to be right.

Cuz when you say goodbye to a friend you left
it shouldn't hurt to cry about the times you shared
so when you close your eyes and see a giant mirror
try to tell yourself "I wish you were here"

And I'm falling short of my own reflection
and I'm falling down in the wrong direction.
You could save yourself if you could listen to someone else,
but as for me, I won't be coming back to Hell.

You admit you have issues with your pride
and you think that's reason enough to let it swallow you up inside.
How can you sleep knowing so much of yourself is built upon lies?
You won't see the truth, but you could see it too if you'd open your eyes.

You want to be right.
You want to be right.
You want to be right.

Cuz you don't want to hear when you've done something wrong.
You just plug your ears and try to play along
but no one likes a cheat and you like no one.
You've been on your turn for far too long.

And I'm falling short of my own reflection
and I'm falling down in the wrong direction.
You could save yourself if you could listen to someone else,
but as for me, I won't be coming back to Hell.
Yeah, that's right. I won't be coming back to Hell.

And I won't shut my mouth until I shut my head
and you won't scare me out of all the goals I've set
and after time to think, I think I'm better now.
I can climb without someone to drag me down.

You drag me down.
You drag me down.
You drag me down.
