Try to catch your breath

Before you meet your death

Feel for your heartbeat

somewhere in your deceit

You look comfortable in your lies

It’s your bed full of dead flies

Your face is twisted in the mirror

Your agenda just a little clearer

The blood is dripping from your wrists

The devil’s help you now enlist

You can’t recognize your voice

You play it off like you have no choice

Bent on destruction without remorse

You’re right on schedule, right on course

You want to destroy me

You’re jealous, envious and ugly

As I say these words to you

I can tell you think I wont follow through.

As I say these words to the mirror

I can see me a little more clearer

I have to cut just a little deeper

So I can rid myself of you, my soul keeper.

If I can see this side of me

I have to end this travesty.
