Succumb To

Succumb To

Three years of bullying, three years of loneliness

I don't know what you who you think you fooled,

But if you think my anger has cooled,

You're wrong

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger

Three years without true friends;

I don't know who you think you were fooling

But if even those of you who didn't bully me, think back

You would see the difference in how you treated me and "the others"

If you think my hardness against you has softened,

You're wrong

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger

How could I be so

Naïve,

Thinking I could be friends with any of you

Very well, then, you didn't laugh while watching me being bullied

All the time,

But that doesn't mean I trusted you

If you think my bitterness has lessened,

You're wrong

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger

Years later, I have a new life

The person you would see now

If you would ever see me, would be someone other

Than the handicapped, weak boy you thought you knew

That

Hopeless,

Pathetic

Loser

That's how you made me feel, how I think of your feelings for me back then

If you think my feelings towards you have gotten better,

You're wrong

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger

Sverre, you were the worst; you turned my friends against me

If I ever saw you again, and was reminded of

A

Certain

Painful

Kick

I wouldn't know what to do

To get that dark and disturbing feeling out

I would have to take the sting on my crutch and

Make you feel

That even I can get angry

That's how you make me feel, years after that period of

Loneliness

Bullying,

Hardship

If you think I've recovered from all that, you're wrong

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger

With these words, I tell the world what you all did to me

You made me lose my childhood friend

You didn't stop to see if something was wrong

Not all of you were like that goddamn handicap hater,

But those of you who weren't, were

Ignorant,

Selfish,

Too hooked up into yourself

You would've noticed how I felt, at least some of it

You wouldn't have taken my sporty attitude for granted

No, I was just playing cool, so I wouldn't make that class into something I didn't want to it to be

I was too nice, too much willing to give all of me without thinking

If you think you knew me at all, you're wrong

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger

I don't know what I did for being treated like that

One moment I was air, the next I was being bullied

Do you think that I can tell you "it's okay"?

No, you're wrong, former class"mates"

Even now, when I've found true friends, who I can

Laugh with

Tell jokes

Talk with about serious things

I will always have that black cut in my soul for what you did to me

As far as I'm concerned, there's no hope for you

You'll never see what you did

(Chorus)

Don't come to me for forgiveness; it's too late for that.

Because of you, I'm having

Flashbacks

Trouble being alone

Hard not to succumb to the anger
