I O U

So you told me you thought that I was beautiful
And it made me forget the everyday
But then you forced and you 'creep'ed your way inside
And you left me with this hollow body
Left me here with all the blame

I donít owe you anything
But you will take it anyway
When there is nothing left to feel
Is that when Iíll no longer ache?

See I know that you need fond memories
And you, and you want me to feed you pleasantries
But I, I donít think that I can cooperate
And I donít really care if you canít take it
'Cause you deserve all the shame.

I donít owe you anything
But you will take it anyway
When there is nothing left to feel
Is that when Iíll no longer ache?

And you can tell all your friends I was the crazy one
And maybe Iíd agree with you on that
Time with you taught me to find what I need
From my very favorite delusions
You can still hold me down to whatever you want
Yeah I know thatís the way that you feel strong
But you canít keep here inside your box
ĎCause I donít belong there anymore
I don't want to be here anymore
So Iím giving you all the pain.

I donít owe you anything
But you will take it anyway
When there is nothing left to feel
Is that when Iíll no longer ache?

I donít owe you anything
But you will take it anyway
When I have nothing left for you to steal
Is that when Iíll no longer ache?
