    You own this


called it off in my defense
couldn't lose with false laments
and burnt out smiles made for you
i smashed the bottle, the last ounce of truth

called it off, so absurd
all these battles we fight with words
falling out of my dreams
to walk around dull reality

who would know the man got shot
my sentiment is always lost
where it goes? no one knows
left behind long ago

called it off and i was so sure
that one of these days we'd all be cured
of this modern day craze
but i don't know my mind is a haze

walked back home when morning rose
with tired dreams and drunken hopes
and all the pain that i create
came pouring out from my self hate

called it off and i don't care
about you not being there
getting lost in my dreams
i can't come back to reality
