​Failing Grade

This song is by The Creepshow and appears on the album Life After Death (2013).

We'd only heard of such betrayal
Through rumors before
(Kept feeding the fire and finally
We've had enough.)
Until it showed itself alone
At our front door
(So distorted and bloated and dragged
Straight through the mud.)

Don't flinch! I won't think twice to
Call your bluff
And this time I won't be dragged
Through the wreckage and flood

We've seen this all before!
There's no one else but me to
Pull us - from the brink
You'll see - the truth - compared
To this mess you've made
Maybe - someday you'll
Wake up from this fantasy
And then - it will be too late for
You to elevate this failing grade

I know it frightens you to finally
See the truth. (That love, hate and
Anguish was only a waste of time.)
But if you only know the vice she
Had on you. (It twisted and tightened
Her grip on your swift decline.)

A new chance to exercise our common
Grudge. A clean slate
A promise forged on the fire in blood

We've seen this all before!
There's no one else but me to
Pull us - from the brink
You'll see - the truth - compared
To this mess you've made
Maybe - someday you'll
Wake up from this fantasy
And then - it will be too late for
You to elevate your way and save this failing grade

We've seen this all before!
There's no one else but me to
Pull us - from the brink (brink)
You'll see (see) - the truth (truth) - compared
To this mess you've made
Maybe (made) - someday you'll
Wake up from this fantasy
And then - it will be too late for
You to elevate your way and save this failing grade
