Rated: E · Lyrics · Dark · #2243910
Inspired by the blues but I don't write music. I still enjoy reading this piece
I grew up sad, I grew up curious, I grew up shy
I wanted to die, I wanted to fly, I had to know why
They told me shut up, they told me sit down, they said go away
Go off and play just not too loud, never too loud
Don't make a sound, don't make a sound, not one single sound
I'll send you away, you're crying too loud, too fucking loud
Can't hear my own pain, my own fucking pain, god you're a shame
Just a damn pain, but not the right pain, god what a shame

I tear them down, he tears me down, tear me down
She tore me down, they tear me down, tear me down
Who tore me down? They tore me down, I tore me down
Who did it first? Who did it first? Who did it first?

I grew up a mouse, I grew up a mouse, in my own house
I wanted to please, I just wanted ease, I just wanted ease
How can I please? Man this is old, so god damn old
How can I please? Oh I can't please, I just can't win
The people who love me, make me so scared of my own sin
Where do I go? Tell me who knows, tell me who knows
If it's God who knows, I just can't pose, I just can't pretend
Guess that just shows, I'm not the one, anyone chose

I tear them down, he tears me down, tear me down
She tore me down, they tear me down, tear me down
Who tore me down? They tore me down, I tore me down
Who did it first? Who did it first? Who did it first?

I grew up tired, I grew up angry, I grew up mad
I got so mad, so god damn mad, out my damn mind
What's there to find? What's there to find? I gotta find...
Something to chase, something to be, please just save me
I'll do anything, just as long, as it comes easy
Thrills are easy, chills are easy, it feels so good
I like when it's dark and alone, around the neighborhood
I like their stares, I like their smiles, I like the unknown
I like to feel cold and hard down to my bones

Please tear me down, I wanna go down, please tear me down
I tear me down, I beg you to help me, just tear me down
Who did it first? Who did it worse? Make me by breakin me
I need to feel, the worst I can feel, I'm beggin' you please
I'm done with the ease, I just want disease, I need the disease
Please tear me down, I tear me down, can you break me down?
