Spiraling down
I’ve become nothing more than a disease to myself
Please take my life from me
Why do I deserve to breathe, to bleed, to stand beside such purity?
How the fuck did I ever come so far?
With this evil tide turning against me from the start
I’ve spent my life living a lie, solely responsible for this am I
No one can hide from the truth
The truth catches up with you in time
The time has come to repent for what’s been done
I’d like to believe that I am a better man, a better man than I have been
I’ve crucified the sin inside my soul, in hope of forgiveness through resurrection
A rebirth, should I be given on this day
The time has come to repent for what’s been done
I’d like to believe that I am a better man, a better man than I’ve become
A better man
It seems that I’ve ignored my own words, “All that I will be,” is still for…
She is the sun; she is the moon that draws my thoughts at night
She is love, the one who holds me
And set me free from spiraling down into the abyss
Now I can see the life that I want, and it’s waiting for me
I’m only days away from what I’ve earned
Dreams cannot be bought, and this I’ve learned
So many times I’ve tried, deservingly denied
Denied, but been fed nothing but shame and regret
Over and over, again and again
Repent, for penance I fear will be, at least for me
Everlasting rightful suffering
Wipe the slate clean, hold your head up
Learn from my mistakes and make a change for the better
But don’t fuck it up
The best is yet to come
Repent my son; the best is yet to come
