Suffer
Heart-Set Self-Destruct Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

For all the things you make me do
For all the pain you put me through
For the bruising bloom and the empty room
For the shade of cobalt blue
I want to hurt you

For all the words you made me waste
For all the many fears I've faced
For the seducing lies and accusing eyes
For all the tears you've made me taste
I want to hurt you

I want to hurt you
I want to see you suffer
I want to hurt you...
I want to see you suffer

For all the tales you make me tell
And for the soul you've made me sell
For the terrible slights and unbearable nights
For every turn on this carousel
I want to hurt you

For all the failures you make me feel
For all the wounds that you cannot heal
For this lonely room in the gathering gloom
For the hurt I can't conceal

I want to hurt you
I want to see you suffer
I want to hurt you...
I want to see you suffer

I want to see
I want to see
I want to see
I want to see you suffer

For all the blood you make me bleed
And for the life you make me lead
Because you played your part in breaking my heart
For this game I can't concede

I want to thank you
For the choices you make me choose
For the control you make me lose

I want to hurt you
I want to see you suffer
I want to hurt you...
I want to see you suffer

I want to break you
I want to see you suffer

I want to make you
I want to make you suffer
Annihilate you
I want to see you suffer
Obliterate you
I want to see you suffer




I want to hurt you
I want to hurt you
