I don't think I am what I was before
Cause I never watched anyone die before
I wish I'd never left home
I wish I'd left it alone
Temptation is a disease
Cause you never do as you please
Your body takes over and your mind don't care
Never think twice what might happen out there
Screamin
Go straight in for the ultimate sin
Nobody else ever seems to care
So I took what I thought was mine
And waited for a very long time
And I thought I knew what happened to you
You told me exactly what to do
So I did it right, stayed up all night
Felt like killing myself for you
I don't think I think like I did before
I never watched anyone die before
I felt like I died as well
The look, the words, the smell
The way you looked at me
As if I'd never been free
I remember the words like a favorite song
Cause I forget the way things went wrong
Faked a picture of perfect health
I realised I was killing myself
I don't think I am what I was before
I never watched anyone die before
I dream in slow motion and I wake up screaming
Screamin
