Written by the lovely Matt Casarino. We admit it's kinda bratty... we like it that way.


I’ll never make the same mistake
Thinking I know the way you feel
I guess I’m naïve; maybe I assumed too much
I never did believe you ever would refuse my touch
But everything’s OK, it’s coming to an end
I am defend0r, and I will never hurt like this again
You can’t get to me,
You can’t see through me
You get to me anymore

Looks like your Juliet's asleep
OD’ed on hope and valentines
I know that your eyes are going to turn my way
Pretend to empathize until you burn your pain away
But dreamers only dream
Believers are let down
I am defend0r
Protector of this heart you pushed around
You can’t get to me
You can’t see through me
You can’t get to me anymore
Close my eyes,
Keep my cool
Don’t play nice
You’re not salvation, I’m not your fool

Something has got you so inspired
Someone has put you on the prowl
You tell me you’ve been hurt, that you’re the one who understands
I will use your shirt to wipe your bloodstains from my hands
Cause dreamers only dream, believers are let down
I am defend0r
Protector of this heart you tried to drown

I will remember whenever your temptation has me weak
I won’t surrender to all your charms, your sex and your mystique
You can’t get to me
You can’t see through
No, you can’t get to me
Not anymore
Not anymore
