Lyrics



Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

If I shall die before I wake

I pray the Lord my soul to take



I, I keep a record of the wreckage in my life

I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind

They talk shit, but I love it every time

And I realize



I've tasted blood and it is sweet

I've had the rug pulled beneath my feet

I've trusted lies and trusted men

Broke down and put myself back together again



Stared in the mirror and punched it to shatters

Collected the pieces and picked out a dagger

I've pinched my skin in between my two fingers

And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors



Come on little lady, give us a smile

No, I ain't got nothing to smile about

I got no one to smile for, I've waited a while for

A moment to say "I don't owe you a Goddamn thing"



I, I keep a record of the wreckage in my life

I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind

They talk shit, but I love it every time

And I realize



No sweet dream but I'm a hell of a knife

That I'm no sweet dream, but I'm a hell of a knife



No, I won't smile, but I'll show you my teeth

And I'ma let you speak if you just let me breathe

I've been polite, but won't be caught dead

Letting a man tell me what I should do in my bed

Keep my exes in check in my basement

'Cause kindness is weakness, or worse, you're complacent

I could play nice, or I could be a bully

I'm tired and angry, but somebody should be



Come on little lady, give us a smile

No, I ain't got nothing to smile about

I got no one to smile for, I've waited a while for

A moment to say "I don't owe you a Goddamn thing"



I, I keep a record of the wreckage in my life

I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind

They talk shit, but I love it every time

And I realize



I, I keep a record of the wreckage in my life

I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind

They talk shit, but I love it every time

And I realize



Someone like me can be a real nightmare, completely aware

But I'd rather be a real nightmare than die unaware, yes

Someone like me can be a real nightmare, completely aware

But I'm glad to be a real nightmare, so save me your prayers



I, I keep a record of the wreckage in my life

I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind

They talk shit, but I love it every time

And I realize



I, I keep a record of the wreckage in my life

I gotta recognize the weapon in my mind

They talk shit, but I love it every time

And I realize



I'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a knife

That I'm no sweet dream but I'm a hell of a knife

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
