right again

now i can’t believe this
you mean you’re right again?
somehow i just knew you’d turn it around and be right again

you never had to admit
that you were in the wrong
never even had to admit you were in the wrong

somehow you just keep skating
while the rest of us drown
how can you just keep skating while you watch us drown

how come you called me a liar
when we know it was you
you call me a liar but we both know that it was you

you keep getting away with this
you’ve done it for so long
is that why you get away with it, because you’ve done it so long?

did you ever meet me before?
someone who told you like it really is?
someone who wasn’t afraid of you?
did you think you might die?

when i talked right back to you
did your face turn all to stone
was i the first you turned away from
when you were looked in the eye

you have a history of scaring us
into believing your lies
why do you scare us into believing your lies

did you get it from your folks at home
were they like this to you?
maybe your folks at home were like this to you

and even though they all talk about it
they won’t say it to you
why do they talk about it if they won’t say it to you?

but i’m sitting down with you now
and saying it to your face
sit right down and let me tell it to you to your face

did you ever meet me before?
someone who told you like it really is?
someone who wasn’t afraid of you?
did you think you might die?

when i talked right back to you
did your face turn all to stone
was i the first you turned away from
when you were looked in the eye
