Lyrics:
Fear can drive stick
And it's taking me down this road
A road down which
I swore I'd never go                             Verse 1
And here I sit
Thinking of God knows what
Afraid to admit
I might self-destruct

So lock the windows
And bolt the door
Cuz I've got enough problems                     Pre Chorus 1
Without creating more

I feel like I was born
To devastation and reform
Destroying everything I loved
And the worst part is                            Chorus
I pull my heart out, reconstruct
And in the end it's nothing but
The shell of what I had when I first started

Usually I'll cause my own first hit
It seems to me to be slightly masochistic
But there'd be no story
Without all this descension                      Verse 2
So I inflict the conflict
With the utmost of contemption

So lock the windows
And bolt the door
Cuz I've got enough problems                     Pre-Chorus 2
Without creating more

I feel like I was born
To devastation and reform
Destroying everything I loved
And the worst part is                            Chorus 2
I pull my heart out, reconstruct
And in the end it's nothing but
The shell of what I had when I first started

Thank you God
For giving me the insight
So I might make
These wrongs right                               Intermission
If and when
There ever is a next time
Cuz failure is a blessing in disguise

Pull my heart out, reconstruct
And in the end it's nothing but
The shell of what I had when I first started     Interlude
The shell of what I had when I first started

I feel like I was born
To devastation and reform
Destroying everything I loved
And the worst part is                            Chorus
I pull my heart out, reconstruct
And in the end it's nothing but
The shell of what I had when I first started

When I first started
The shell of what I had when I first started     Outro

THE END your done, now do it again. Then rate it. Now comment. Good job.

dude, it's not in drop db i listened to the song and saw them play it live, they weren't pressing down the E A and D strings with just one finger, their fingers were in the power chord position. So then I knew that it was either in standard or half step down. So I listened to the song and I heard NO E flats!!!! I know that they mostly play in Eb/Db tuning but not this song for some reason.

And as for what was said about the verse, I know you're supposed to listen to the notes ring, I just thought people would be smart enough to relize that without me saying.

So please, PLEASE, don't go giving this a two star rating without actually trying to play it and listen to the song more dude.
