Famous Last Words – One In The Chamber lyrics

I was a living soul just like the rest of you.
A normal guy working nine to five,
Keeping up with the bills because my mother was ill,
I lost track of time.
She lost her fucking mind.
Eventually she died,
I was broken and petrified.
So I drank the medicine tonight,
Bottoms up here’s to my shitty life
.

[Chorus:]
Where have all my morals gone?
Washed away with the bottle, how did this all go wrong?
(It all went wrong)
It wasn’t my intention but there’s no redemption
For those who take away the lives of innocent.
I’m inebriated, I’m dangerous I can’t. (I can’t live on)
So there’s one in the chamber just waiting for me to end it all
.

I drank my sorrows down and poisoned my soul to the core.
I drove away that dreadful night, couldn’t take this life not anymore.
Behind the wheel, the tunnel vision, I couldn’t see them,
85 through the intersection,
My sick transgression, I fucking killed him.

I saw the blood, what had I done
?

[Chorus:]
Where have all my morals gone?
Washed away with the bottle, how did this all go wrong?
(It all went wrong)
It wasn’t my intention but there’s no redemption
For those who take away the lives of innocent.
I’m inebriated, I’m dangerous I can’t. (I can’t live on)
So there’s one in the chamber just waiting for me to end it all.

It’s come to this:
A pen and paper, a loaded gun.
I can’t live on another day with everything that I’ve done.

Dark has taken all control,
The accident had consequence, I took a father from his girl.
And god can’t even save my soul,
This life I live is barely living, hollow man I have no feelings.
Burn in fires down below,
It’s just what I deserve cause I am evil and despicable.
One shot ready to let go,
I put my finger on the trigger,
Life I want mine to be over.

[Chorus:]
Where have all my morals gone?
Washed away with the bottle, how did this all go wrong?
(It all went wrong)
It wasn’t my intention but there’s no redemption
For those who take away the lives of innocent.
I’m inebriated, I’m dangerous I can’t. (I can’t live on)
So there’s one in the chamber just waiting for me to end it all.

There’s one in the chamber,
Waiting for me just to end it all.
End it all!

My mother is gone, so I guess I’ll just leave this is for whoever finds me.
All I can really say is I’m sorry.
I can’t live with myself with what I’ve done.
I can’t take the guilt, and the pain, the emptiness.
It’s all just too much.
I’m hollow.
I can’t take life anymore.

    This song says everything I feel deep inside, there are times when giving up sounds like the best option, but this song gives you hope when yours is all gone, it tells you no matter how hard things get keep moving, you may feel that no one loves you but it's not always like that. When you are upset or too depressed you miss everything that is right in front you. You push everyone away because you feel you don't deserve their sympathy or kindness. You beat yourself up because you just don't see the point in not doing so. You break yourself more and more till there is nothing left. Well like the song says "this is not the end" well it's not just open your eyes to everyone and thing you have been pushing away and embrace them. Don't let those depressed, lonely or even guilty feelings stop your life, don't let the darkness consume you or leave you as nothing. Use this as a push off. As something you will remember over and over to keep yourself going. Keep your head up not down. This is all I have to say but just know you are not alone and you are not meant to end it all.

    I posted about this on see you again, but I didn't say the full thing. My friend/ heart sister, was the closest person I had known. She committed suicide and left me. She wanted me to come with her, but I just couldn't. I said I wasn't ready to leave and I had wished she felt the same. I lost her to a pocket knife and now I can't get her back. Till this day I still feel that emptiness inside that I know will never go away. There is a wound in my heart that I know will never heal. What I had seen that day was horrible. I still have the image of her in my head. Lying there limp and lifeless. I felt lifeless that day and from then on I've never been the same. From that day on I go on everyday a shell with a broken heart and lost soul. This song reminds me of her and I feel that emptiness go away when I listen to this song.

    I dedicate this to my dear sister who I know even though she will never get to know or see this, she will always be here with me. I've never forgotten that tragic and disappointing day but the best I can do is keep going. I tell myself she wouldn't want you to stop because she had.
