The sun awakens my battered form
As it flickers through the white branches of this dead tree
How can it survive with nothing around it?
Why do I survive with nothing around me?

(I know how you feel
I know what you mean
I know what its like to be alone)

No you don't, you don't know anything
Until you've walked a day in these shoes
Into the depths of hell and returned wiser

I've scraped these weary, weary bones
Through time to find a place to call my home
I've dragged these lakes inside my mind
Still I don't know why this skin feels so tight

I hope you know that I'll do whatever it takes
I need you to know that if this is the only way
I'll saddle up and take the reins

I've got an itchy trigger finger
It won't hurt to scratch a little deeper

Now I'm lying, baited on my death bed
But she won't come to me

You can't make a martyr of a sacrifice
You'll never cure this virus with a parasite
You can't make a martyr of a sacrifice
If you demand this payment at least name your price

I need you to witness the pain on the face that they gave in your name
And tell me you wouldn't do the same

I'm only alive swaying on a knife's edge
But I can't make that leap
Now I'm lying, praying on my death bed
Where is the end?
God please deliver me

Show the path and I swear I will repent

One, I'll spread this disease
Two, I'll wage this war
Three, I'll starve the world
At four death will catch me
