​Meltdown

This song is by Bruce Dickinson and appears on the album Skunkworks (1996).

Hey, you wait, cringing in the dark, you create what you always fear
A puppet of hatred, dishing out poison
You use me for bait, your begging bowl of lies,
Chain letters of sniveling compromise
I can smell the difference, your truth and your fiction, you and your
Twisted convictions

Were you my friend when I belonged?
Were you my friend when I was strong?
Were you my friend when I was weak?
Were you my friend when I was crawling, calling... out of my head?

Cold, like your blood, the snake is always cool
When things get tough, you slither on the ground
You cover up your tracks when I'm around
It's over now my friend, your dog has had its day
It's payback time for what you had to say
You're stuck with the life you made,
Stuck with the plans you made
Stuck with everything you are

Were you my friend when I belonged?
Were you my friend when I was strong?
Were you my friend when I was weak?
Were you my friend when I was crawling, calling... out of my head?

Everything's gonna happen now, everything's gonna happen now
Everything's gonna happen now, everything's gonna happen now

Were you my friend when I belonged?
Were you my friend when I was strong?
Were you my friend when I was weak?
Were you my friend when I was crawling, calling... out of my head?

Crawling, calling, out of my head
Crawling, calling, out of my head
