Okay, so basically I've had an instrumental floating around for over a year now, from my first band, that I never tacked lyrics onto. After leaving my second band I decided to make a return to my original music, and so the other night I wrote this to express my anger over all the betrayal I've gone through in these past months (between friends, bandmates, and girls). One of my former bandmates offered to help me with recording this to put on YouTube, so that might be coming soon. But anyways, without further ado:

Overruled


I never thought that you'd leave me,
I thought that maybe this was for real.
All you ever did was deceive me,
With no regard as to how it'd feel.

You're always on the attack,
You put a knife in my back,
Took everything I gave you for granted.
And then you threw me away,
Like I had nothing to say.
So blind and broken, I don't know what I should believe.
You're always on the attack,
You made it fade into black,
You'll never understand what's important.
I'm walking out through the door,
I won't take this anymore,
Your judgment's been overruled.

I never thought that I'd leave you,
I was a victim to all your lies.
Don't know why I'd ever believe you,
Anyone could see right through your disguise.

You're always on the attack,
You put a knife in my back,
Took everything I gave you for granted.
And then you threw me away,
Like I had nothing to say.
So blind and broken, I don't know what I should believe.
You're always on the attack,
You made it fade into black,
You'll never understand what's important.
I'm walking out through the door,
I won't take this anymore,
I hope that you will learn from all this.

Was it worth everything that you did to me?
Did you get everything that you ever wanted?
Look behind, all the times and the memories,
You can't go back to when all of this had started.

You always left me here alone,
What makes you think I'd forgive you?
You never gave what I gave you,
I'm done with this and it's over with.
You always left me here alone,
What makes you think I'd forgive you?
You never gave what I gave you,
I'm done with this and it's over with.

Was it worth everything that you did to me?
Did you get everything that you ever wanted?
Look behind, all the times and the memories,
You can't go back to when all of this had started.
Was it worth everything that you did to me?
Did you get everything that you ever wanted?
Look behind, all the times and the memories,
You can't go back to when all of this had started.

Was it worth everything that you did to me?
Did you get everything that you ever wanted?
Look behind, all the times and the memories,
You can't go back to when all of this had started.
Do you cry in the night when you think of me?
Do the tears sting your eyes with regret and sadness?
In your heart, you deny all the memories.
All the things that I did, and how well you had it.

Great lyrics mate.

Love the symbolism and imagery it created. It conveys the betrayal you've felt quite effectively.

You're always on the attack,
You put a knife in my back,

Love it.

i dig the lyrics, but alot of the choruses seem way too long to me. its tough, because theyre all good, but choruses are generally relatively short, and these aren't. not sure what to do about that.

its good though

Thank you. And the longer bits are actually the prechorus. It sounds long, and I realized that while writing, but with the actual instrumental part it ends up being fine. Thanks for the concern, though.
