I tried to kill the pain
But only brought more
(So much more)

I lay dying and I’m pouring crimson regret and betrayal
I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved? Am I too lost?

My God! My tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God! My tourniquet
Return to me salvation

Do you remember me?
Lost for so long
Will you be on the other side or will you forget me?

I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved? Am I too lost?

My God! My tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God! My tourniquet
Return to me salvation

Return to me salvation
I want to die

My God! My tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God! My tourniquet
Return to me salvation

My wounds cry for the grave
My soul cries for deliverance
Will I be denied?
Christ! Tourniquet my suicide

Return to me salvation
Return to me salvation

    I think that amy is begging for god, who is the rubber band holding her blood flow together (tourniquet), to return salvation back to her because she has regret from wrong she has done and she needs salvation. And she is pleeding for it but at the same time asking if it is too late for her from christ... Basicaly she is saying she is lost in the pain that she feals and is asking for deliverance and help from god because she feals as if she is dieing and is pleeding with a broken heart for acceptance, forgiveness, and pleeding for him to make everything alright. I am very familuar with this pain for this is an utter truth that the world basically asks for but dosn't allways realize the salvation and the deliverance comes from god and it's never too late until you die or you sell your soul to the devil... And aswell don't realize that life itself is pain and suffering and that it never ends and that if you give up, then you are truly lost because then you have lost the self-will to continue in pain and your pretty much screwed which would be the reason why this world is so screwed up. But i'm not saying us prayer pushers are any better, hell half the time i just wanna die from having to be so put together and fake for the sake of everyone else... I havn't been lost yet but i know that if i'm 12 years old and i can comprehend this b. S. That the world is feeding everyone then i'm pretty sure it's not verry long before the devil takes me down for my dreams are haunting and words slowly pouring out of my mouth feal like glass shards cutting me from the inside-out, and everyone i love is being taken from me and i feal very alone in this world and the only thing keeping me together is the word of god, but it's really hard to hang onto this blinding path that had glass and broken dreams on it but i'm trying to because i know that the light at the end of the tunnel is eternity in the neverending riches of happiness and togetherness and the cure to loneliness, so if i could give advice to somebody... Don't give up no matter how old, young, stupid, smart, lost you feal or are...
