lyrics

And all I know to do
Is tell myself that I'm over you
Whether or not I know it's really true
I'm broke and broken, so I'm through

What I've become, I know I can't afford
Well I can't settle, and I can't score
All I can do is close the door
And tell myself that I don't need you anymore

That door will open no more
That door will open no more
Open no more

Queen bee
You sink your sting deep into me
You give me temporary relief
Feels like heaven inside of misery

You feel like love, I know you're just a fling
A one night stand with a wedding ring
A vacant cage, a cardboard box with wings
Looks like a castle to a desperate king

My eyes are open no more
My eyes are open no more
Open no more

An amusement park, I think that's what it's like
It's fun to go there from time to time
You pay the toll and ride all the rides
But it's no fun to stay there overnight

'Cause when the ride ends
Here come the shakes after the lone binge
Wake up faceless, I've made the same mistake again
Let go the reigns the way I lost so many friends

That ride is open no more
That ride is open no more
Open no more

This ain't the way home
It's just a detour on a winding road
When I can't get to where I want to go
It's better on the sidewalk than the gutter, you know
I wouldn't be here if I could find my home

Can't settle down, can't settle for this
Stuck here, enraged and perilous
All I've ever wanted was an ounce of respect
Before all I say and do is done and said
I won't give in to the temptations of second best
This road only leads through a life of regret
Oh, no more no more
Oh it ain't open no more

This road is open no more
That door is open no more
Open no more
Open no more

Open no more...
