Save you? Really? I don't even know how to save myself

from me

I can't be your saving grace

I won't be

I'm not laying down for you

Ever

It takes a man to admit his faults

Take the heat for his wrongdoings

Accept the fact that maybe, maybe.............bite the bullet

You're not worth saving

You're not set apart from everyone else

Now that I think about it

the word saving

The biggest hype I've ever heard of

Dropping the bomb........

Noone is worth saving

Noone is pure

except newborns

Only the slate gets dirty fast

Earlier and earlier

Sinning

It's part of life, it's a way of life

And so the question remains...

only it's more like a statement

Noone gets saved

It might not even be possible to do so

Heaven. It's deserted

It's an empty parking lot in the middle of winter

You can't GPS Heaven

It's got vacancy all over the place

yet no reservations

I'm sorry, You won't be saved by me

I won't be saved by you

Except it's not a choice between will we or won't we

It's between do we want to or don't want to
