I blame you for my suicide
you held the knife and I held your sides
now all we needs some blood
I hope you brought your gun

when I wake up, I start faking my way through smiles
maybe I'll get some sleep when I give up on life
but for now
I'll keep setting my sights on night

wheres your lungs and cyanide
I've got one eye and both are blind
where's my life
where's my life 

when I wake up, I start faking my way through smiles
maybe I'll get some sleep when I give up on life
but for now
I'll keep setting my sights on night

when I wake up, I start faking my way through smiles
maybe I'll get some sleep when I give up on life
but for now
I'll keep setting my sights on night
