"Better" - Lyrics

A stone house with brick walls
And a good foundation should never fall
But when you use dynamite for construction
Better prepare for the grand eruption
And if you're hoping the wind is blowing
In a way that will keep your circuits cool
Then you're the fool (Don't know what's inside)

And all I could hear was an army of voices ringing in my ear
And telling me the choice is gone
There's no place to run
And all I could hear was you telling me I'm only
Good with my back in a bed
While you settle the score
With my face pushed to the floor

And yeah, I should've known better (Better)
But I, I swear it was better, before
Good face and a sweet tongue
With the family swearing that he's the one
But when you close off the doors and connections
Isolation as is means of deception
It's pretty easy keeping quiet
When your mouth's still shut by someone else's violence
And the only thing worse than the noise was silence
'cause then you never know what'll happen next
If you're lucky, it's nothing
If you're not, I'll call it sex
But that was just to make himself feel better
Wasn't it? (Well, wasn't it?)

All I could see was a stranger in the mirror
With blood on her lips and her mind giving in to doubt
There's no way out of this

And all I could see in retrospect
Are all the memories that I wish would have stayed repressed
It was easier giving sympathy
When I was still denying that it happened to... (Happened to...)
And yeah, I should've known better (You kept telling me)
Yeah, I should've known better (You kept telling me)
Yeah, I should've known better (You kept telling me)
But I, I swear it was better before
