Eyes open to splattered blood
Cold tile mocks me as I arise to find the knife is still in my back
Shifting thoughts now slow with venom
Take me as I stagger... is this all we were worth?
I've lost you for good without regret
Your once gentle words are bleeding from my eyes
Screams of terror now fill my every breath
I know you'll rue the day you ever met me
I'll lay you down to sleep when sorrow will bury the blade hilt deep

You know I would have died for you
Now I'm forced to choose between a life of revenge or regret
As I thirst for vengeance, my heart struggles to come to grips
Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?

Alone, you stood so still as you watched me break
Did it now kill you too? what has led you to the dagger my friend?

You know I would have died for you
Now I'm forced to choose between a life of revenge or regret
As I thirst for vengeance, my heart struggles to come to grips
Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?

My revenge is made so clear midst cold tears left with the betrayed
I'll see that you never forget this
I will hunt you down like a dog
Lies could never disguise what I saw behind me in you
Remembering times we have shared... my friend for life is gone
We'll let the embers serve as the only memory of last days, so long ago

Why would you leave me to die, turn, and walk away?
Why would you leave me to die after you had buried the dagger hilt deep?

... you're dead to me...
I would have died for you
Now I'm forced to choose between a life of revenge or regret
As I thirst for vengeance, my heart struggles to come to grips
Why would you leave me to die?
... you're dead to me...

    I think it's about a guy who is heartbroken because his love cheated on him or lied about something important. So he's trying to decide whether or not to get revenge on the girl for doing so, knowing that he would probably regret it if he doesn't get revenge. He wants her to regret cheating. He asks, "Why would you do this to me?" Ultimately, he decides that the girl isn't worth the trouble and admits that he doesn't like her anymore. (You're dead to me.)
