Devour The Day - Respect Lyrics

Where do I even begin
How could you do this again
You think that we would stay friends
You think you’re innocent
This wasn’t part of the plan
You turned your back and you ran
But what I don’t understand
Is how you live with it

Respect, you don’t deserve it
You won’t get any from me unless you earn it
Respect, you’re not worth it
I’ll never be, I’ll never be like you
Be like you

You’re like a blood-sucking leech
A parasitic disease
You only take what you need
And than you’re done with it
Face it, you wasted the work that we did
You took the easy way out

Respect, you don’t deserve it
You won’t get any from me unless you earn it
Respect, you’re not worth it
I’ll never be, I’ll never be like you


I always knew you were a coward
I knew you were a fake, a fraud
I knew you’d run like a bitch

Respect, you don’t deserve it
You won’t get any from me unless you earn it
Respect, you’re not worth it
I’ll never be, I’ll never be like you

Be like you
Be like you

Devour The Day Respect Comments
  1. Lucy Venti

    Respect is earned not given. They want to force people into submission? And they get a revolution. Need the underground to help!

  2. Lukas Perkins

    I have several co workers that this applies to. I’m glad I found this song so I can blast it on Friday’s when we are aloud to bring our speakers in. Make them here it!

  3. Panda Fanta
