lyrics

This is fate for the scoundrels!

Scoundrels!

Make amends for what you've done.
A truth I never imagined was (You).
You fucked it up and ruined everything.
A life like a wolf in sheep's clothing
White noise, can you see it in the air?
Towards the light, embrace the nightmare
They hold the keys now there's nowhere to run
You can hide but they will seek
Now here they come
And while you're out tonight
I hope you never find a way home
From the selfish ones that you have now become
And while I sleep tonight
I know I’ll never be like you
Always failing to carry the world on your own
Being surrounded by the wrong kinds of people is the worst thing you can do.
And if you laugh the world will laugh too.
But if you weep you'll weep alone
I can't be thinking
I'm sitting here drinking
Alone in the dark
Played myself as the victim

And not to mention
My only intentions
We're never exceptions
For you to ever act this way
Beauty is skin deep,
Inside you're dead
Walk with the devil
And you'll go to hell
Bite the bullet.
You won't be born again.
Such is life,
This is the bitter end
And while you're out tonight
I know you'll never find a way home
From the selfish ones that you have now become
And while I sleep tonight
I know I’ll never be like you
Always failing to carry the world on your own
You're never gonna make it on your own
It's time to forgive
The ones who always doubted me
It's time to move on
The world is right in front of me
I’ll never look back
On anything you've done to me
A life of disguise
That turned into a tragedy
And if you carry the burden of burdens, there's too much weight to hold on
Spit out your last ounce of blood
Turn blue and know that judgement is coming for you.
Where you'll come out the casualty
And while you're out tonight
I hope you never find a way home.
From the selfish ones that you have now become
And while I sleep tonight
I know I’ll never be like you.
Because I know.

This is fate for the scoundrels!
