All-American Rejects, The - Bite Back Lyrics




You couldn't break me in the end... (oh no)
And such a freedom I enjoy
When you're deaf to the sounds you trust
If that was all you've got, my friend... (oh no)
Then set yourself to disappoint
Yeah...

Feels like I'm strapped down on this table... so tight
You've got me stuck to a razor's edge
And I'm trapped in a deadbolt glove
You stand to cut me or enable... oh no
And such a streak starts steading heads
And I live for the things I love

Sad, but maybe it's true
Push you back's what I'll do
And it's just enough
To keep you back one second longer

Take a little more than what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break a little piece of what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

Remember when things seem so stable... you know that
I compromise just to appease
Yeah, you take but you take too much
If what you need's not seeming able... yeah, right
Then maybe it works when I leave
Yeah, you fake what you say you love

Sad, but maybe it's true
Push you back's what I'll do
And it's just enough
To keep you back one second longer

Take a little more than what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break a little piece of what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

Take a little more than what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break a little piece of what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

Move faster
I can't move enough
How much longer?
Is this long enough?
We can't be
And it won't even catch your attention
And it pains me so to mention

Sad, but maybe it's true
Push you back's what I'll do
And it's just enough
To keep you back one second longer

Take a little more than what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break a little piece of what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

Take a little more than what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break a little piece of what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

Take what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

Take what I've got
It's all I have to please you
Break what you want
Bite back the hand that feeds you

All-American Rejects, The Bite Back Comments
  1. Da Vinci Wes

    came here to lurk in the comments about how goatee this song is somewhere along the line I feel like the craft of most modern music is synthetic even mine I plan to change all of that at least for me love and peace is all I have if no one said it to u today I love you

  2. Firebolt4848

    These lyrics are amazing

  3. Firebolt4848

    I will never stop coming back here

    Need Reviving

    It's great how it feels like every single one of their songs I listen to ends up going on my playlist. I've never liked every song from any band except for the Rejects, and I imagine I'll never stop coming back to any of their songs again. Super underrated band no doubt.

    Firebolt4848

    Need Reviving I feel the exact same way

  4. wertknickster

    Their best song. Don't know why it's not on an album.

    @shawtythug65 Since I think my band is going to play this in the variety show (auditions are in 2 weeks) I've been listening to it over and over, and I think i have the drum parts down. I can successfully drum it AND air drum it. xD
