Contusions (Give Me the Blame)
Lyrics
[Verse 1]
I tell you that I refuse
And I black out from the impact
You make it so you can't lose
When I'm choked up and can't fight back

The scars you give me are revealing
The truth that I can't take these beatings

And you're always still lying
while I'm trying and I'm rattled
There's so much more than kneecaps
and torn shoulders in this battle
It must be nice that I keep needing
I let you in but I'm receding

It's gone on way too long now
And it's fucked up, but I'm stalling
I feel it every day now
There's no leaving when you're calling

It feels out of my hands now
And I don't know how to change it
And I don't know how to hate it, no

[Chorus]
Give me the blame
It's all one with the abuse, my life's receding
Mournful on my knees for you
You take till I give in, you got me bleeding till I'm blue
So misleading like you do

[Verse 2]
I tell you turns the lights on
You should see just who you're hurting

I close my eyes to pretend
what you're doing's not unnerving
You're trying hard and that's what matters
It's been a war and I'm so battered

You claim this shit's so easy
But I don't know how it happened
All that's left's been worn out, bruises run down
Oh I'm damaged

It feels out of my hands now
And I don't know how to change it
And I don't know how to hate it, no

[Chorus]
Give me the blame
It's all one with the abuse, my life's receding
Mournful on my knees for you
You take till I give in, you got me bleeding till I'm blue
So misleading

[Verse 3]
If your gifts of love are my injuries
And you don't feel nothing when you look at me

Tell me why you're making me pay
It doesn't feel right but I'll be okay

If you want to keep taking my breath away

Let me see your eyes before I fade away

If love's got no limits like you say
It's okay to show me pain
It's okay to show me
[Exit]
