This isn’t about me anymore
This isn’t about the work I’ve done
Yet I’m caught up in the center
of a mistake of my own creation

Everything I build falls faster
Than my blistered hands can hope to work
But now you’ll place me in the cross-hair
The victim of your own insecurities

I trusted you to keep it together
I trusted you; you let me down
So now, how can I believe you

I trusted you to keep it together
I trusted you; and you let me down
Now I see you’re lying to me

I built an empire for you
I built a place for you to rule
I built a home for you to call your own
and you threw it all away

I built an empire for you
but then you played me for a fool
I sowed my blood, my toil into this soil
you threw it all away
Threw it all away

I trusted you to keep it together
I trusted you and you let me down
But now I see you’re lying to me

We trusted you to keep it together
We trusted you and you let us down
But now we see you’re lying to us `

I trusted you to keep it together
(We trusted you to keep it together)
I trusted you and you let me down
(We trusted you and you let us down)
But now I see you’re lying to me
(But now we see you’re lying to us)

I built an empire for you
I built a place for you to rule
I built a home for you to call your own
and you threw it all away

We built an empire to rule
but then we played ourselves a fool
we sowed our blood, our toil into this soil
just to throw it all away
Throw it all away
