Cloudy skies start my morning rise
And sunlight never hits my eyes
Dark as night the days are
Cold and wet my pillow
Restless winds are blowing
Trying hard to stay alive
My life is such a waste of time and
You’re to blame
You’re to blame

Sleepless nights start my every day
And dark rings never leave my eyes
All alone my days speak
To the world I’m lonely
Tired of fighting for the
Lied of dream that never comes
I know I’ve tried my best, because
You’re to blame.

All the tears I’ve cried
Now I ask, for what
It seems that I can see again
All your thoughtless vows
It’s a daze I could not leave
But now I’m here
I’m scared I could fall back inside
Lost beneath my skin and ruminate in pain

Times I thought that we were through
But what I could not see
Was the truth
And I’ve grown so weak, so chapped my mind
Surrender all my hopes to my resent
Weak inside
Weak alive
And I drop my head, no self-respect
Abuse myself ’til all that’s left is gone
What you gain is all the blame
Maybe now somehow, I’m free
Maybe somehow, I’m free

It’s not temporary
I have changed
No more cloudy skies
Awake, but sane
No more drugs to help forget your name
‘Cus you’re to blame for my pain
Live in shame

You're to blame
I place the blame
