Lyrics

Patience left me staring from the bottom of a bottle
And now I'm seeing red
Unglued, off the hook, and untied
You're standing on the only nerve I've got to spare
Laid back, reserved, and calm is the way I spend my days
As for now, I'm just looking for how I'm going to get my vengeance back to you

Through my pain I see you there
In my mind I hear you lying
Through cold eyes I blindly stare
You'll never learn
So, strike the match and watch it burn

Both eyes on you, I'm watching
Gonna tell you one time and I ain't going to speak again
Snake and move and stone slither
Put a rabbit in a hat and then make it disappear
Eyes black and so unkind
On the weak is who you prey
Play shell games and then shift the blame, look away but defeat comes back to you

Through my pain I see you there
In my mind I hear you lying
Shake my head and blindly stare
You'll never learn
So, strike the match and watch it burn

Patience left me staring from the bottom of a bottle
I ain't going to speak again
Snake and move and stone slither
Because you just snapped the only nerve I'd had to spare
Laid back and deadly calm
avenge the meek, they'll have their day
Always hide behind the weak and the blind but now I bring my vengeance back to you

Through my pain I see you there
In my mind I hear you lying
Through cold eyes I blindly stare
You'll never learn
So, strike the match
And Through my pain I see you there
In my mind I hear you lying
Shake my head and blindly stare
You'll never learn
So, strike the match and watch it burn
