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


from Retribution, released March 1, 2014
