My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing
But you might as well just change your name
Cause I only recognize this shadow
Kinda blackened superhero with nobodys best interests in mind

Now theres blood in the water, that I squeeze from this stone here
And we turned into our cheap wine
And I swallowed every drop, yes I could feel my stomach rot
And you were so supportive as I drank through the pain

You recognize this shape, its the back of your hand
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
You paste it on my face here again and again
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
And I dont wanna be the one who takes this place in vein

Dove off the deep side platform, jack knifed to bone dry it full
One broken ankle saved my name
And as he waits to burn, I'm digging deep
At every turn it keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same

You recognize this shape, its the back of your hand
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
You paste it on my face here again and again
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
And I dont wanna be the one who takes this place
Dont wanna be the one who takes
I dont wanna be the one who takes this place in vein

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

I dont wanna take, I dont wanna take this place, no
I dont want to take, I dont wanna take this place, no
No, no, I dont wanna take this place, no
No, no, I dont wanna take this place, oh

You recognize this shape, its the back of your hand
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
You paste it on my face here again and again
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
And I dont wanna be the one who takes this place
Dont wanna be the one who takes
I dont wanna be the one who takes this place in vein
