LyricsEdit

Never really had a problem with you
All along I thought our friendship was true
Put my trust in you right from the start
I never dreamed that you would be
My enemy the knife to take my heart

You screwed me in the perfect way
A friend betrayed
Just another mourner
Content to follow orders

Leave behind your conscience
Abandon those who need you most
Convince yourself you’re noble
But we both know it’s not so
But if you cross
My battle line
You’ll find
You’ll be sorry that you tried

If it’s war that you want
Then you got it
If it’s pain
Well I brought what you need
If it’s true what you say
You’re the best
Then let’s play
You won’t believe it
Until you see it
When I kick your ass and
Look you in the eye
And with a smile and a cheerful heart i’ll
Turn to you and
Wave goodbye

I'll be honest i was plenty surprised
Turned from family to full-on despised
Just like you to take the coward's way out
A book of lies with no replies
This diatribe's your victory no doubt

You knew the cruelest things to say
Then ran away
Filled with spite and jaundiced
Like Judas thereupon kissed

Just a mindless weapon
Pointed at an enemy
A simple tool providing someone
Else with victory

Now that you crossed my battle line
It's time that I blow your little mind

Farewell my friend
I really must give you the credit
You achieved a goal
Perhaps the first time in your life you felt control

I'll never trust the same
I'll see friendship as just another game
Full of winners and losers
Selfish abusers
You failed to fly but
Somehow I’m to blame?

If it’s war that you want
Then you got it
If it’s pain
Well I brought what you need
If it’s true what you say
You’re the best
Then let’s play
You won’t believe it
Until you see it
When I kick your ass and
Look you in the eye
And with a smile and a cheerful heart i’ll
Turn to you and
Wave goodbye[2]
