lyrics

When you asked for my sympathy, you never mentioned a symphony at your feet.
When you strike with your cries, you knock my balance down for prosperous surprise.

So stop with your sobbing stories in your life. You’re too fucking helpless.
There’s no way that you could survive in your mind. You’re too scared to live your life.

I won’t take back all the words you said.
And I’ll never forget, “I won’t take back all the things you did to me.”

Testify what’s in your mind and let it all move faster.
As you get yourself out of commission, you’re bringing it to justice in your defenseless prison.

So stop with your sobbing stories in your life. You’re too fucking helpless.
There’s no way that you could survive in your mind. You’re too scared to live your life.

Testify what’s in your mind. Break out your bad senses to prove me wrong, and prove you’re right.
Testify what’s in your mind and let it all move faster.
As you get yourself out of commission, you’re bringing it to justice in your defenseless prison.

So stop with your sobbing stories in your life. You’re too fucking helpless.
There’s no way that you could survive in your mind. You’re too scared to live your life.

SO TESTIFY!
