When I waken, and I'm achin', time for sleepin', yeah
When I'm sayin' time to go and, I've been hurtin', yeah
When I'm layin, I'm still tryin', concentrating on dyin', yeah

You're right as rain, but you're all to blame
Agreed my crime's the same
My sins I'll claim, give you back she'd pain
Go find a place for own shame
So you can deal with this thing unreal
No one made you feel any hurt, yeah

Body's movin, only provin, no one needs to move
Still believin, yet mistaken, all God's children, yeah
And I must say, I was stupid, selfishly she consumed, yeah

And you must change patterns all we trained
Or n'er regain peace you seek
Now you hear me, for the things I see
Yeah, I believe in inner peace, yeah

Throw out, blow up, hold in
Show fine, no signs, grow blind

    This is very heartfelt song in a sense It's almost like an apology suicide note or although I'm pretty sure hes addressing himself to the listeners, by the way on a side note some lyrics are wrong It's "my sins i'll claim give u back champagne" not she pained that doesn't make sense you know not every song is written about demri parrot "lifeless dead" is about her I beleive also It's not no one needs to move It's "no one needed to move" and theres no she between consumed, boy you guys really butcher these song lyrics to hell, I would correct it but fuck it I'm tired myself so whatever.
