Lyrics

Remember when
I dove into the crowd
And I got a bloody knee
Under my skin
A mark from wiping out
It brings back the memories

Every bone's been broken
But my heart is still wide open

(Chorus)
I can't stop don't care if I lose
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
I'm going down in flames for you
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
One more thing I'm addicted too

With each scar there's
A map that tells a story
What a souvenir of
Young love's like
Jumping out an airplane
Riding a tidal wave of
An ocean of emotion
My heart rips me wide open

(Chorus)
I can't stop don't care if I lose
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
I'm going down in flames for you
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
One more thing I'm addicted too

And I'd cover up these scars
But no make up can cover up what we break up
And I can't stop seeing stars
I'm so knocked out whenever you're around

(Chorus)
I can't stop don't care if I lose
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
I'm going down in flames for you
Baby you are the weapon I choose
These wounds are self inflicted
One more thing I'm addicted too

I can't stop no I can stop
No I can't stop
Ohh ohh ohh ohh
Ohh I'm going out in flames
Ohh I'm going down in flames
Ohhhh
Baby you are the weapon I choose
Baby you are the weapon I choose...
