You're A Waste of Air


Why did I ever spend another day with you?

Why did I spend another night in your arms?

Somebody set the alarm

Wake my ass up

Before I make another mistake

Give me back my heart

I'm tired of all the goddamn fakes


Fake tears!

Fake times!

Fake smiles!

Weren't we supposed to be together awhile?

If I do recall,

Didn't you say forever?

Forever must only be a few days

Enough to watch me fall

And then slam me into a wall


I hate your fucking guts

Trust me,

If I had a gun

Your ass would be afraid

Your name would be the one to fade

Carved in stone

You're six feet under

I no longer have to suffer

You'll never amount to anything

You might as well give up now
