Verse 1

What did I do to deserve this?

Why did you break me, tell me, please?

Silence, silence

Is the only answer you ever knew.

I can hear it

Screaming in the voice that belongs to you.

Chorus

Saying, "you took your chances,

Now you can't air your grievances,

Now you have to live with the outcome,

Whether it eats you alive or makes you numb."

Verse 2

You say you misunderstood me.

If you knew then, we'd never be.

Applause, applause

Is all that I have left for you, liar.

I hope you can

Hear my voice screaming higher and higher.

Chorus

Saying, you took your chances,

Now you can't air your grievances,

Now you have to live with the outcome,

Whether it eats you alive or makes you numb.

Bridge

Whether it makes you wish you were dead

Just so you can stop the images burned in your head,

Whether it makes you look like an ass,

Whether it makes your toy airplane crash

Against the cruel cold waves' dances,

You can't air your grievances,

You can't air your grievances.

Chorus

Well, you took your chances,

Now you can't air your grievances,

Now you have to live with the outcome,

Whether it eats you alive or makes you numb.

Outro

Well, you took your chances,

Now you can't air your grievances,

Now you have to live with the outcome,

Whether it eats you alive or makes you numb.

That's the price of playing blind and dumb.

Now you have to live with the outcome.
