You tried so hard to push me down
To seek me out
Oh, I'm through fighting it
And you tried so hard to bring me pain
To keep me sane
Oh, I'm through hiding it

You tried so hard to blind my eyes
To kill my life
Of every mistake I do
You tried so hard to keep me barred
To make me scarred
Oh, I'm done blaming you

(Chorus)
I am blind
A fool for all I believed in
Darkened eyes
Wishing I was asleep; dreaming

I tried so hard to place the blame
To keep the hate
Oh, against all you've done
I tried so hard to keep me clean
To make you see
That you spilled all my blood

A blinded fool, I see now

(Chorus)

(Music)
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

(Chorus 2x)

I tried so hard to keep my hope
To make it known
Oh, I know that I'm the fool
I tried so hard to keep alive
To not be blind
Oh, but I've played the fool
