Verse 1

I watch the gears of fate turn.

I watch my faith in you burn.

I watch you wage a war over

Losing what you never had.

I know you'll never think sober,

You're stubborn, you have it bad.

Chorus

Forget about the rest of the universe.

Let's talk about how you're caught up in the curse.

Is she worth the bitterness?

Is she worth the petty mess?

Is she worth coming up with a new excuse

To defend her role in this and find refuge

In blaming the people who

Just want a smile on your face?

Verse 2

I watch your light sharply dim.

I watch my heart stop its scream.

I watch you take your sweet revenge.

You can't forgive their mistake.

It's sad, I find it very strange,

For you it's a piece of cake.

Chorus

Forget about the rest of the universe.

Let's talk about how you're caught up in the curse.

Is she worth the bitterness?

Is she worth the petty mess?

Is she worth coming up with a new excuse

To defend her role in this and find refuge

In blaming the people who

Just want a smile on your face?

Bridge

Well I refuse to be a double agent

And do wrong to the very friends

Who just want a smile on my face.

You lost my respect in your game of chess.

Chorus

Forget about the rest of the universe.

Let's talk about how you're caught up in the curse.

Is she worth the bitterness?

Is she worth the petty mess?

Is she worth coming up with a new excuse

To defend her role in this and find refuge

In blaming the people who

Just want a smile on your face?
