I try to do the things to satisfy you But it feels like everything I do is wrong So I fight off the seepage of this filthy stew And wish my that weakness could just make me strong Always hoping that we'll recall what it was that made us Yet it's falling further from our broken grasp Will it swing in our favor one more time again Or will you step in to smother it all based on the past All that's left now is broken memories The jagged scarring of ripped seams The hollow breathing of the dead screams The velvet rabbit you once gave to me Is on the floor to bleed it's stuffings A sad reminder of the shattered dreams A smile shines up, as things seem to improve And the horrible pain is suddenly a distant memory So the tide has washed out to leave in me deep inside of this groove While the stain is left here for everyone to seeY Once again in the darkness I can feel my eyes are swelling up As the infection grows to threaten more of the host I can't stave off the one thing that I know will corrupt Cause the thing I hate so clear is what I love the most Someone take this all away ... I don't feel like I deserve it anyway ... Someone take this all away ... I don't feel like I deserve it anyway ... Someone take this all away ... I don't feel like I deserve it anyway ... Someone take this all away ... I don't feel like I deserve it anyway ... Take this from me!

Down on your knees and digging in the dirt You are planting the seeds of our hurt I can't help just what you feel for me Maybe it's just your insecurities Quiet secrets and dirty little lies Were just disease on the needles in my eyes You held me hostage in your twisted game Now I bear the cross of your shame There's a gingerbread man running through my head With a bloody butcher knife saying everybody's dead Soiled little hands and a crowbar to the face These are the images that I can't erase Cause you're looking so good on those broken knees And all of your bleeding is just a little tease All the love was a fallacy, a hollow little lie The only way to cleanse yourself is to die Now you can harvest all your misery And point the spoiled fruits at me Wrath should be leveled only at yourself Cause all the dolls died on your shelf Porcelain faces cracked with abuse Clothes torn off, there's no excuse Now all your lies are starting to wear thin Soon you'll shed your skin I shove it off onto you cause it's all I can do I won't accept your responsibility Another knife on the skin to scrape off the sin Then just shove it right off onto me

I won't be - your scapegoat You are not - a martyr Twist the knife - feel the pain All will know that you died in vain I can't tell you what to do with your life It's just not the place for me You stabbed yourself deep with your own blade But you are just too blind to see it All around you see the flaws so plain Though you try to hide them all away from our sight Wrapped up in misery and bought with pain You hope that it won't see the light I won't be - your scapegoat You are not - a martyr Twist the knife - feel the pain All will know that you died in vain I tried so hard just to inform you To educate all of your ignorance But you chose to just let your life decay You robbed yourself of your sustenance All around you see the flaws so plain Though you try to hide them all away from our sight Wrapped up in misery and bought with pain You hope that it won't see the light I won't be - your scapegoat You are not - a martyr Twist the knife - feel the pain All will know that you died in vain Marching onward through scorched remains - of another set of memories There is nothing left but pain - and a sour smell of disease Failure (what you are) Is in your blood (in your blood) Your truths (i can see) Are clear as mud

It is all... Clouding up, and taking over - The specks float across his eyes My vision is blurred, and anger's buried - A smothering of all i feel I'm crowned again, in a kingdom - Where everyone is spies But growing strong with the knowledge - This death will make me steel It's what I need... You betrayed the trust I gave to you - Just ripped it from my chest But you will see as I collect - I will not be oppressed I'm stretching tendons, exposing intestines I'm stretching tendons, exposing intestines I feel the pain from the spike - That you placed deep into my back But I'll repay your wicked ways - And launch my own attack You had thought you could avoid - My righteous retribution But I'll make sure that you pay to me - All of your restitution You just had try and test so, You pushed me... So I let you taste the filth as, I unleash... You should know I'll make you pay when, I get out... You will get what you deserve Your bullshit lies still lurk inside I can feel them stab my eyes Standing up but falling over yet I cannot help but try Even through the pain I can't abstain from pushing ever on I will be here standing up to you, I won't be a pawn In a strange and twisted way, I was meant to be your savior By searing off your skin, I shed you of your sin ( x2 ) In a strange and twisted way, I was meant to be your savior By searing off your skin, I shed you of sin I take your sin Ripped out from you You deserve this
