Verse -	My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing,
	But you might as well just change your name.
	'Cause I only recognize this shadow,
	Kind of like a superhero with nobody's best interests in mind.

Verse - Now there's blood in the waters, that I squeezed from this stone, 	here, And we 
into our cheap wine.
	And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rotting,
	You were so supportive as I drank through the pain.
