​You Know Damn Well

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

You know damn well why we don't talk anymore
I can see it clearly down the scope of this empty bottle
I've got my problems and we both know that's for sure, but these three digits will keep hanging around my neck just like a noose
It's strangling away my life, or what's left of it
I swear there's got to be a mix-up, let's get this straight - we never wanted this, and we never needed this
So take your ticket and keep standing in line
While I move to the beat, my heart pulses in time
Oh, right now, we're just sifting through the ashes of our infinite mistakes
And when we hide away, it only says little of our character
So take a step out of your simple life and walk around
Just open up your eyes and tell me what you see
I pick myself up off the dusty wooden floor again
I'd tear my heart out just to know that it was still beating
Flat lining, I'll sail emotions to the shore of crippled nights
I'll spend my time alone, so please won't you call me out? 'Cause I'm standing in line
You're the only one I want to sleep with tonight, so tie your red ribbon
You caught me staring at my rib-cage, slow, baby
Another couple nights, you'll think I'm crazy
But when is enough enough?
