lyrics

I cannot forgive myself for what I’ve done
I live in constant guilt for I have been so wronged
The only permanent prescription lies
in the chamber of my gun

Their blood stains deeper than the skin;
my soul is permeated by the drops of red
Why could it have not been me?

Take me far from here:
the place I once called home
and lay me down, for my shame is now my crown—
My true home lies with the likeness of the damned

Now (sustained on measure 30)
My fears are realized
Death’s familiar hand outstretched to me
He warns: There is no time to heed;

Beware of what you wish for.

The earth unfurls beneath my feet
I recoil as the face of death contorts into a sneer

Why could none of this just happen for real?
Death has made a mockery of me
my fate is not a toy or anybody’s property

I will stop at nothing
to end my suffering

It’s just a scratch below the eye—
The thought of you that makes me die
All this time my life’s at stake
yet here I’m still the one to hate

I will take you to the grave and lay you in my place

Why waste this spite on me,
when I can end this game right now
I will turn the tables
and I will put you down to rot in hell

I know you’ve seen the demons in my eyes
You're fucking with the keeper of unending burdens.
Show yourself and come into the light
A true coward such as you would only dare to flee

Alright mother fucker it’s time that you came clean with all the bullshit you hide behind your self-righteous walk, the unadulterated lies that you carry above your shoulders, and the hate you monger behind that fork tongued pile of shit you call your face

I will bury you
the fires of hell have no sting like that of mine
The ground will reel in disgust and spit your maggot-ridden corpse back to the vultures and the beasts of the earth


For as it is above, so it is below
