Verse 1

Turn around now, don't you dare look back.

Leave behind the feelings, cover your track.

Let yourself know you'll never be together.

You'd rather be alone, you deserve better.

Verse 2

He drained the light from your heart and soul,

He left you reeling, feeling like burnt out coal.

Now turn your heart stone cold with hatred.

Discard him like he's just a skin you've shed.

Chorus

Be the venomous snake that he turned out to be,

Be the reason for his never ending misery,

Get ready to bite,

You'll start training tonight,

For the perfect strike.

He should have known you'd be the vengeful type.

He poisoned your heart, you'll poison his life.

Now get ready to bite,

Gather all your anger, all your might,

For the perfect strike.

Verse 3

Burn away the memories with the burning tears.

Realize that this thing might even take a few years.

But you'll hold on, because he has to pay.

For faking it night after night, day after day.

Verse 4

Show him that you don't give a damn anymore.

Don't let him see your heart's still on the floor-

Done that long enough, gave him a thrill.

Now you'll lie in silent wait for the perfect kill.

Chorus

Be the venomous snake that he turned out to be,

Be the reason for his never ending misery,

Get ready to bite,

You'll start training tonight,

For the perfect strike.

He should have known you'd be the vengeful type.

He poisoned your heart, you'll poison his life.

Now get ready to bite,

Gather all your anger, all your might,

For the perfect strike.

Bridge

Strike a match on the pictures, or hold them so close that they sting.

Anger should be all that you're feeling.

You'll wreck his life, like he broke your heart,

Like he tore all your dreams all apart.

Oh, it's just the start.

Chorus

Be the venomous snake that he turned out to be,

Be the reason for his never ending misery,

Get ready to bite,

You'll start training tonight,

For the perfect strike.

He should have known you'd be the vengeful type.

He poisoned your heart, you'll poison his life.

Now get ready to bite,

Gather all your anger, all your might,

For the perfect strike.
