I've been mistaken
You've swindled once again
Now there's no question
I, I was wrong

And now I stand alone
Just studded in your throne
Your true colors shone
You don't belong

And now I'm lost
And now I run from you
And now I see
Just how I bleed from you

And all the lies, all the lies
How could I let you in?
But now it's clear
I went along for the ride, ow, a-a-aow

Hey, mister, merry man
I know you'll come again
Till you find just what
You're lookin' for

And if I'm your little lamb
Why'd you leave again?
Ah, no, I'd bet
You'd stay for more

And now I'm lost
And now I run from you
And now I see
Just how I bleed from you

And all the lies, all the lies
How could I let you in?
But now it's clear
I went along for the ride, ow, a-a-aow

And now I'm findin' out
You were nothin' 'bout
Ah, what I thought you were
And now I understand

Just how you work your plan
First you're warm
And then you just burn

And now I'm lost
And now I run from you
And now I see
Just how I bleed from you

And all the lies, all the lies
How could I let you in?
But now it's clear
I went along for the ride, ow, a-a-aow

And now I make my way
Through another day
Ah, 'cause I know better now
You'll run another line

It's someone else's time
But in me you still resound

And now I'm lost
And now I run from you
And now I see
Just how I bleed from you

And all the lies, all the lies
How could I let you in?
But now it's clear
I went along for the ride, ow, a-a-aow

Ow, a-a-a-ow

No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
