Lyrics:

I could listen to you scream
Pretty music to my ears
I could listen to it all day
If you want me to
I could talk about my world
How you brought about ruin
I could talk about your greed
If you want me to

I could look into evil
See a heart just like mine
I could throw away reason
If you want me to
I could walk into darkness
Find the hole you crawled into
I will be the intruder
If you want me to

You can whis­per your Lord's Prayer
And pre­tend that it matters
But don't you wish you'd just listened more?
You can hide in the shadows
And pre­tend I won't find you
But don't you wish you'd just listened more?

I could listen to more lies
About prom­ises you kept
Will you walk on water
Like you said you would?
I could make you my prisoner
But you were dead men talking
When you burned the oceans
Like you said you would

You can beg for God's mercy
And pre­tend that He hears you
But don't you wish you'd just listened more?
You can drown in your sorrow
And pre­tend you were helpless
But don't you wish you'd just listened more?

This was always your one life
I won't pre­tend that it matters
But don't you wish you'd just listened more?
This was always your one home
I won't pre­tend that I'll miss you
But don't you wish you'd just listened more?
