Lyrics/Order -INTRO- -VERSE 1- The hating, and the waiting, hesitating, I just want to be done with you. Faking for the taking. And I'm waking up to the fact That you're lying and denying Just to find all the answer you seek. It's pathetic, not poetic. IT'S JUST SICK! IT'S JUST SICK! -CHORUS- Is compromise something you don't understand? You force your hand but my eyes are wide open. Caught in the web of your self-serving plan, Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open. -VERSE 2- Seeing is believing, now I'm leaving. All the damage is done And you've broken any notion of trust Because you're lying and denying Just defining(?) all the answer you seek. It's pathetic, not poetic. IT'S JUST SICK! IT'S JUST SICK! -CHORUS- Is compromise something you don't understand? You force your hand but my eyes are wide open. Caught in the web of your self-serving plan, Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open. -BRIDGE- Seeing is believing, now I'm leaving. All the damage is done. All the damage DONE! -SOLO- ALL THE DAMAGE DONE! -CHORUS- Is compromise something you don't understand? You force your hand but my eyes are wide open. Caught in the web of your self-serving plan, Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open. Don't force my hand when my eyes are wide open. FORCE MY HAND! When my eyes are wide open. -OUTRO- The lying and denying, IT'S JUST SICK! The lying and denying, IT'S JUST SICK!
