Lyrics

Say I'm just a man
Behind the shaking of my hands
When the melody is gone
Beneath the need to understand
But did it ever occur to you
That I was never the excess weight
Because it never occurred to me
That you're not listening anyway
So with a sinking in my chest
I admit it was once or twice
That it felt like you knew me best
Now all I feel is the god-damned shame

I'm not...

Call it out by name
Call it, unashamed
Calling me what I could never be
I should never see that
I am not insane
I am not insane
I am not the reason for your ruse
Blood-lust, self abuse

Mix that broken scent
With the taste of pure regret
And burn it in a pit
Of the words you never meant
Because it never occurred to me
That I should never have held your hand
When it always occurred to me
That you don't care to understand
And so, I guess that I play the fool
And this is what I deserve
For believing a word you said
When the joke was on me instead

I'm not...

Call it out by name
Call it, unashamed
Calling me what I could never be
I should never see that
I am not insane
I am not insane
I am not the reason for your ruse
Blood-lust, self abuse

Tainted

My, oh my, am I?
You said we'd be just fine
You told me, eye to eye
But you were never mine

I'm not standing anyway
I am not what you say
I'll always be
I hate that this is me

Call it out by name
Call it, unashamed
Calling me what I could never be
I should never see that
I am not insane
I am not insane
I am not the reason for your ruse
Blood-lust, self abuse

Tainted
