lyrics

The Devil You Know

I, have built myself up to take a fall
It seems I'll never find a way to break these walls, I'm my own downfall
But you, always go through hell just to watch me crawl,
And still somehow I make it out, for my last curtain call

Unstable, reactions, you're always so withdrawn
This fable, we fashioned, is all but dead and gone

Better is the devil that you know
Damn the devil that you don't
(Can't trust anything or anyone)
Only hoping that it's not too late
Is this destiny or fate
(Can't trust anything or anybody)

I, have seen the way that you look at me,
I never wanted your apologies, Or lies you tried to feed to me
And you, undermine like you know it all,
but still some how I make it out, for my last curtain call

Unstable, reactions, you're always so withdrawn
We wrote our own scripts and we both played our parts

Better is the devil that you know
Damn the devil that you don't
(Can't trust anything or anyone)
Only hoping that it's not too late
Is this destiny or is it fate?
(Can't trust anything or anybody)

What you don’t know won’t hurt you but in the end it only pulls you under
Until you're six feet down, with no way out, like the devil’s got your number

So,
The tables have now turned
You never seem to learn
And it’s killing you so slow
This Devil that you know

Better is the devil that you know
Damn the devil that you don't
(Can't trust anything or anyone)
Only hoping that It's not too late
Now you know this is your fate
(Can't trust anything or anybody)

What you don’t know won’t hurt you but in the end it only pulls you under
Until you're six feet down, with no way out, like the devil’s got your number
