Across the floor in the hand of where we drove the drill
A cautious ear to the mouth of your confession
Think of all the things we put him through
In the face of his god would he tell the truth?

Still recorded were the words that dribbled out his kiss
When eyes go blind in this man of what could once become
Sever the limbs off his torso in sleep
And burn what remains so the world may now see
No longer...will we wait for your answers
Back to the hell where you've come from
Think of all the times you've once had
Write them in a letter that says goodbye

You'll listen to reason while you're face down in the dirt
You'll stomach the hurt and break for him here just how much he's worth

Slowly discarded were the remains of his lonely youth
Among the alley where the dwellers scare to notice
Picture a young boy in pieces and streets with leveled malfunctions
No name to be called redeemer
We'll fix him restore him...with the love is no other
Think of all the things you did before
Write them in a letter that says reborn

You'll listen to reason while you're face down in the dirt
You'll stomach the hurt and break for him here just how much he's worth

Following you across the interstate walking away...I'll fire on
Following you across the interstate walking away...I'll fire on
Following you across the interstate walking away...I'll fire on

On the wrong way out
On the causeway to neverwhere
On the wrong way out
On the causeway to neverwhere
On the wrong way out
On the causeway to neverwhere

Dear my friends in the time we've spent forever after beyond this when will our nightmare ever end?
Dear my friends in the time we've spent forever after beyond this when will our nightmare ever end?

Pull the trigger and the nightmare stops...
Pull the trigger and the nightmare stops...
Pull the trigger and the nightmare stops...forever you will learn[3x]

    The song refers to a point in the Amory Wars story when one of Inferno's IRO-Bot children, Sizer, is taken into custody by the URA. He is taken to Shylos Ten and tortured for information about the rebellion. The URA drives a drill through his hands, blinds him and disassembles his body, though they finally realize he will not talk. His body is discarded in the streets of Shylos Ten and he’s left for dead. At some point Sizer is found by Claudio, Ambellina and presumably Jesse and he is reconstructed.
