Temptation
Why won't you leave me alone?
Lurking every corner, everywhere I go

Self-control
Don't turn your back on me now
When I need you the most

Constant pressure tests my will
My will or my won't
My self-control escapes from me, still

Hypocrite
How could you be so cruel
And expect my faith in return?

Resistance
Is not as hard as it seems
When you close the door

I spent so long trusting in you
I trust you forgot
Just when I thought I believed in you

What're you doing?
What're you doing?

It's time for me to deal
Becoming all too real, living in fear
Why did you lie and pretend?

This has to come to an end
I'll never trust you again
It's time you made your amends
Look in the mirror my friend

That I haven't behaved as I should
Everything you need is around you
The only danger is inside you

I thought you could control life
But it's not like that, there are
Things you can't control

Let's stare the problem, right in the eye
It's plagued me from coast to coast
Racing the clock to please everyone
All but the one who matters the most

Reflections of reality are slowly coming into view
How in the hell could you possibly forgive me?
After all the hell I put you through

It's time for me to deal
Becoming all too real, living in fear
Why'd I betray my friend?

Lying until the end
Living life, so pretend
It's time to make my amends
I'll never hurt you again
