The Art Of Losing

This song is by Rise Against and appears on the album The Unraveling (2001).

I'm not fucking blind to the way
That you talk around the truth
Not just what you say
But what you do
Played this tug of war way too fucking long
Like every time
Again I've lost
You've won

You took advantage of the trust that I gave (I gave)
Took my forgiveness rubbed it back in my face (my face)
Reaching for words but there's nothing to say (to say)
I'm left to wonder will this ever be the same (the same)

This rage
Burning through my veins
Regret consumes my mind
Cutting deeply like a razor blade
Will I live to see another day
Without questioning your motives
With constant doubt

You took advantage of the trust that I gave (I gave)
Took my forgiveness rubbed it back in my face (my face)
Reaching for words but there's nothing to say (to say)
I'm left to wonder will this ever be the same (the same)

And as we sit back
Waiting for these scars to heal
Try to convince ourselves
That this
That this isn't real
Will you allow me forget your past
Or will you always hang it over my head
