Verse One:

Shame won't stand by you,
Cause you overpower it.
Shame won't look at you,
Cause the fire in your eyes,
Scares it away.
Shame won't confront you,
Cause you will confront it first.
Shame won't tear you down,
Because you've built a wall.

(Chorus)

So I say:
Shame on you,
Shame on everything about you.
Shame on you,
Shame on the things that you do.
Shame on you,
Shame on the thoughts that tear apart,
Your broken smile.
Shame on you,
Shame on your torn up mind,
It's been prying at you for a while.

Shame can't eat on you,
Your bitter poison makes it wilt.
Shame can't enter you,
Too bad cause you deserve it.
Shame can't even reach you,
Because if you didn't keep it out,
It would tear,
Tear… you apart.

(Chorus)

You despise the shame,
That use to rule over you.
You hate the shame,
It tears so many people apart.
You would die with shame,
If you would let it in.
You won't take the shame,
If you did,
If you did…
You wouldn't be here,
If you did.

(Chorus)
