An Idiot's Guide To Being An Asshole Lyrics

So you can tell them what you want
I know you'll do it anyways

Belt out empty lies and they'll empathize with all
you'll have to say
About why you crossed the line
And keep on living out this lie
And I'm afraid you can't just pick things up and leave
this mess behind
Gassed up that bridge with match in hand
But the joke's on you time is passing and you must
decide
Do you fear the things that I have to hide?
Listen up and fall in line and be happy with the rank
and file
You'll think back and crack a smile cause life's too
short to live it in denial

We all know that
You don't have that long to abstain
You can't turn back
Before you're a part of this game

I know I promised I would be there for you but you're
on your own
These times we've seen only lend themselves to
Leave you standing on your own while you're
contemplating
Ending what has just begun
A tiny spot on a burning son

You give it up and take it back
But the stabs go deep when on constant attack
These bonds must not be broken
On this tie that binds

So you're still standing here looking at the hand that
you've been dealt
Is it what you wanted?
Well step right up and I'll get you your reprieve
fulfilled through
Hollowed eyes stripped clean from over-gazing
A constant eye on the prize
Overshadows everything you've ever thought you'd care
to know

Gassed up this bridge with match in hand with match in
hand
But the joke's on you time is passing and you must
decide
Do you fear everything that I have to hide? Listen up
and fall in line and be happy with the rank and file
You'll think back and crack a smile cause life's too
short to live it in denial
Now I can trust you
As far as I can throw
You've weighed me down and now there's nothing left to
say
And since we're done down here
And since we're through
Are you waiting for your parting gift?

Turn around and accept your weakness
This is not your call to arms
This is just a false alarm and it's time to abort and
it's time to abort
You can only strive to be perfect
The disillusions keep you sane
It's a hard fact to choke on when your not even in the
game

I know I promised I would be there for you
A promise I would keep if I knew how
If I could only find a way to wipe that grin right off
your face
Maybe things would change and I could stay.
