There's nothing you can tell me I don't already know
It's my best defense
That's why I'm pleading guilty to a crime I might commit
It's my only chance to escape my wrath

I know it makes you cry but I need an alibi
So I hang myself out to dry
Tell the truth to lie

I'm moving backwards, I blame myself
'Cause I'm my own Scapegoat, I'm in a rut
I point the finger right at my self
'Cause I'm my own Scapegoat
I'm off the hook

Don't misunderstand me, I don't practice to deceive
I just need some reprieve for this life I lead

It's only smoke and mirrors when I tell you what you want to hear
'Cause I'm trying to get to there from here
Now, isn't that clear?

Don't make excuse for being a loser -- No!
Don't want forgiveness for such a sickness -- Oh No!
Eternal penance, eternal sentence -- Oh Yeah!
I'll say I'm sorry but it won't be the last time

An ounce my prevention is worth at least a pound of yours
So here I go again. Will it ever end?
