This song is by Hollywood Lies and appears on the album Building An Empire (2008).

An empty bottle writes these letters from my soul
It says, I can't go on like this, it says, I can't go home again
When every ounce of me is screaming out your name, take it for all that it's worth
You always taught me how to be a better man
Do as I say, not as I do
But when you threw away your life for what you thought was best, thank you for taking us down with you
You know, I never repaid you for that
Now that I'm older, I've seen what you've done
Your selfishness has lead to your grave, and your silence is killing us both
We're both starving, but in different ways
I'd do anything for you, and you know that
I just wish that you knew who you were, 'cause I have no idea who I am, and I'm begging you to come hold my hand
I'm not ready to give up, I'm not strong enough to do this
Why can't you see right through this facade of lies
Compromise - what is that word? It's not something I'm used to
