Evanescence – Tourniquet lyrics

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 (dying),
Praying (praying),
Bleeding (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 (dying),
Praying (praying),
Bleeding (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...)

    I disagree with scene queen. It goes much deeper than that.
    I think when she's saying "My God, my tourniquet" She's calling her tourniquet her god. She's an adict. By making herself intoxicated she forgot her pain or atleast eased it but by doing so she caused more problems and had to deal with always wanting the drug and now regrets whats she's done. She wants to find her way and doesn't know how. It's about letting things get so bad that you want to die and you can't seem to find your way through the pain.

    This song is quite religious. Christians believe that suicide is a sin against god. That's what this song is about. She's so depressed and hurt that she wants to end her pain by cutting herself. She starts bleeding and is slowly dying. She soon realises that she brought herself even more pain (i tried to kill the pain but only brought more). She turns to god for help and questions his mercy like many people do ("am i to lost to be saved? " and "will i be denied? "). She addresses the god as her tourniquet, her last chance of saving her soul.

    This song repressents me so much. It's my favourite song of all. I think it's about a person that wants to change her life. Suicide repressents the bit of the person they want to kill and that the person wants to start again. They are even praying suggesting that they are christian. To me it means they want to start a new life and be forgiven of all that she done wrong and kill her old life. Well that's my opinion.
