The Mistake You Can't Live Without - Three Days Grace lyrics (page 2 of 2)
from the album "Transit of Venus"

SIGN OF THE TIMES

This is a sign of the times, another mountain to climb, the sun burns as hot as the flame in the devil's eyes.
There's chaos on the rise, the sky is raining knives, we have mistaken the toll that it's taken on you and I.
The oceans have all gone dry, Venus is passing by, you and I.
I'll give you what you need.

CHALK OUTLINE

I've been cursed, I've been crossed, I've been beaten by the ones that get me off.
I've been cut, I've been opened up, I've been shattered by the ones I thought I loved.
You left me here like a chalk outline on the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away.
You keep coming back to the scene of the crime, but the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway.
All you left behind is a chalk outline.
I've been cold in the crypt, but not as cold as the words across your lips.
You'll be sorry, baby, someday, when you reach across the bed where my body used to lay.

THE HIGH ROAD

I told you I was hurt, bleeding on the inside; I told you I was lost in the middle of my life.
There's times I stayed alive for you, there's times I would have died for you, there's times it didn't matter at all.
Will you help me find the right way up or let me take the wrong way down?
Will you straighten me out or make me take the long way around?
I took the low road in, I'll take the high road out, I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.
Standing in the dark, I can see your shadow; you're the only light that's breaking through the window.
There's times I stayed alive for you, there's times I would have died for you, there's times it didn't matter at all.
Will you help me find the right way up or let me take the wrong way down?
Will you straighten me out or make me take the long way around?
I took the low road in, I'll take the high road out, I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.
Well, I'm not gonna give it away, not gonna let it go just to wake up someday gone.
The worst part is looking back and knowing I was wrong.

OPERATE

I know how you're operating, only come around when you know that I need it.
Cut out my heart and you leave me bleeding, but you're the only one who brings out the demon.
Like pills you make me righteous, like I can rise above it all; like pills you leave me lifeless, shaking in a bathroom stall.
Why you want to do this, don't want to see you in my phone, leave me alone.
I know how you're operating, only come around when you know that I need it.
Cut out my heart and you leave me bleeding, you are the only one who brings out the demon, you bring it out.
Like pills you grab ahold of me, one hit just makes me want you more, until we're in a motel room locked up behind closed doors.
Why you want to do this, don't want to see you in my phone, leave me alone.
I know how you're operating, only come around when you know that I need it.
Cut out my heart and you leave me bleeding, you are the only one who brings out the demon, you bring it out.
You're doing it now.
It used to be you brought out the best in me, now it seems you bring out the beast in me.

ANONYMOUS

In my mind worlds collide, something inside me is gone, still I keeping going on.
In my mind oceans divide, I don't know where I belong, but still I keep holding on and on.
I get by in a world with no conscience by shutting it out and being anonymous, and the problem is you're just like me.
We get by in a world with no conscience by shutting it out and being anonymous.
Hello, is there anybody out there?
I get by in a world with no conscience, I try and I try but I am anonymous, and the problem is you're just like me.
We feel so anonymous.

MISERY LOVES MY COMPANY

I am in control, I haven't lost my mind, I'm picking up the pieces of the past you left behind.
I don't need your condescending words about me looking lonely, I don't need your arms to hold me cause misery is waiting on me.
I am not alone, not beaten down just yet, I am not afraid of the voices in my head,
And down the darkest road something follows me, I am not alone, this misery loves my company.
Leave me in the cold, you better run away, I'm gonna dig a hole and bury all the memories we've made.

GIVE IN TO ME

She always takes it with a heart of stone, cause all she does is throw it back at me.
I've spent a lifetime looking for someone, don't try to understand me, simply do the things I say.
Love is a feeling, give it when I want it, cause I'm on fire, quench my desire.
Give it when I want it, talk to me, woman, give in to me.
You always knew just how to make me cry, and never did I ask you questions why.
It seems you get your kicks from hurting me, don't try to understand me, cause your words just aren't enough.
Love is a feeling, quench my desire, give it when I want it, taking me higher.
Love is a woman, well, I don't want to hear it, give in to me.
You and your friends were laughing at me in town, but it's okay.
You won't be laughing, girl, when I'm not around, I'll be okay, I'm gonna find some peace of mind.
Love is a feeling, give it when I want it, cause I'm on fire, quench my desire.
Give it when I want it, talk to me, woman, give in to me.
Love is a feeling, it's taking me higher, give it when I want it, cause I'm on fire.
Talk to me, woman, give it when I want it, give in to me.

HAPPINESS

I reach out when I have a confession, I reach out in desperation,
I reach out when no one is listening, so I go looking for the next best thing.
Happiness straight from the bottle, when real life's too hard to swallow.
I feel them judging on me for their own pleasure, if they really knew, they'd know better,
That I'm the one who caves under pressure, when desperate times call for desperate measures.
Happiness straight from the bottle, when real life's too hard to swallow.
I know there's got to be some peace in me, but I can't find it, I get so sick of looking.

GIVE ME A REASON

Feed on me, you know I'm never far; feed off me, like a vulture on a deer hit by a car.
I can only do so much, and of course it's never enough, I don't think that you see exactly what you're doing to me, don't speak.
Give me a reason to turn and run, give me a reason to burn this house down, give me a reason, I wish you would.
Give me a reason for disaster and I'll be happy ever after, give me a reason, I wish you would.
So you've tried your best to get out of this mess, but that's just a joke, you've never awoke to the sound of a mother screaming at night, don't speak.
Give me a reason to turn and run, give me a reason to burn this house down, give me a reason, I wish you would.
Give me a reason for disaster and I'll be happy ever after, give me a reason, I wish you would.

TIME THAT REMAINS

Don't do as I have done, win where I have lost, have where I have none.
Don't let your demons drive, they'll just steer you wrong, you won't get out alive.
Cause you can't unlive the pain, you can't rewind to yesterday, you might never find your place in the time that remains,
So if tomorrow never comes from living fast and dying young, I hope the best is yet to come in the time that remains for you.
Don't get me wrong, the mistakes I've made along the way made me who I am today.
The time is gonna come, you will wake up and realise just how fast your life goes by.

EXPECTATIONS

Baby, innocent, one day gonna be decadent; prom queen, Miss America, in the backseat in a pair of cuffs.
Sixteen, little runaway from the five-o and got away, from a small town with no scene, looking for a shot on the big screen.
Expectations go to hell.
Not so innocent on the street hustling, never be Miss America in the backseat of a Celica,
Crashing with a deadbeat, living large on a love seat; in a small town, no scene, turns out it was nothing but a pipe dream.
Expectations go to hell.
Rich girl wannabe, bought a quick pick for the lottery.
Watching TV with her boyfriend, fell asleep, left the ticket on the nightstand.
He stayed awake to see the ball drop, turned it way down, she never woke up.
Grabbed the keys to her car in the back lot, threw a shot of Jack back, left with the jackpot.
Expectations go to hell.

BROKEN GLASS

All we are is broken glass, thrown to the floor, we were never meant to last,
And all we are are empty shells, try to pick us up, you're gonna cut yourself.
We march the streets at night, looking for a thrill, looking for a fight, it was the first day of the rest of our lives.
We work fast, never gonna die, riding up the highway, forty-five, we didn't know it couldn't go on forever.
All we are is broken glass, thrown to the floor, we were never meant to last,
And all we are are empty shells, try to pick us up, you're gonna cut yourself.
We fought to rule the world, not knowing just how fragile we really were, like it was the first day of the rest of our lives,
Then the bricks began to fall and we can see the cracks along the wall, we didn't know it couldn't go on forever.
We believe that we can go on forever.

UNBREAKABLE HEART

Hijacked when you weren't looking, behind your back people are talking, using words that cut you down to size.
You want to fight back, it's building inside you, holding you up, taking you hostage, yeah, it's worth fighting for.
They'll try to take your pride, try to take your soul, they'll try to take all the control,
They'll look you in the eyes, fill you full of lies, believe me, they're gonna try.
So when you're feeling crazy and things fall apart, listen to your head, remember who you are, you're the one, you're the unbreakable heart.
Hijacked when you weren't looking, behind your back people are talking, using words that cut you down to size.
You want to fight back, you're out in the open, you're under attack, but your spirit's not broken, you know it's worth fighting for.
They'll try to take your pride, try to take your soul, they'll try to take all the control,
They'll look you in the eyes, fill you full of lies, believe me, they're gonna try.
So when you're feeling crazy and things fall apart, listen to your head, remember who you are, you're the one, you're the unbreakable heart.
Don't look them in the eyes, believe me, they're gonna try to fill you up with lies.
