lyrics

Forgot your voice last time we met.
Couldn't forget the constant regret.
Should have let go, but instead I clung onto every worthless fucking word you swore you meant.

But my generosity comes with a price, and I'm not sure that you can pay it.
It's worth so much more than your lack of respect.

'Cause I'm free of this, and I like it.
No more crying, just never mistake kindness for weakness.
It will leave you in pieces, you can quote me on that, I would know.
'Cause your lying and cheating is exactly the reason for this cold in my heart.

Thought I was your friend, now look at me.
You made me a plague for this world to see.
So sit there with your crown and tell me you don't feel this.
I am not that tough.

But my generosity comes with a price and I'm not sure that you can pay it.

'Cause I'm free of this, and I like it.
No more crying, just never mistake kindness for weakness.
It will leave you in pieces, you can quote me on that, I would know.
'Cause your lying and cheating is exactly the reason for this cold in my heart.

Well I get why you're silent but now's not the time to stay quiet and hide that you're not really fine.
I remember the old you and that's not who you are, your old methods of function have gone very far.
And I just can't handle the fact that your new prototype will refuse to react to the life you once lived and the things you enjoyed.
It'd be nice if you let someone help fill the void.

'Cause I'm finally free of this mess, and I think I like it.
No more crying, but why'd you mistake kindness for weakness?
It will leave you in pieces, you can see it on me, I would know.
'Cause your lying and cheating are all too good reasons for this cold in my heart.
