I'm giving up all expectations
That I will live a meaningful life
I once was filled with inspiration
That lion heart has lost his pride

I'm not the person that I thought that I would be
I keep tripping over the same steps
These words are beautiful
Advice is never useful
And I still walk the line held tight with my regrets
I'd rather die than live like this
I gotta give, I'm giving in

Some people never will go crazy
What horrible lives they must lead
I'm gonna try and pay to see it
And build a window to help me see

I'm not the person that I thought that I would be
I keep tripping over the same steps
These words are beautiful
Advice is never useful
And I still walk the line held tight with my regrets
I'd rather die than live like this
I gotta give, I'm giving in

I have got my eye lids stapled shut
I have failed but I'm used to it
My past is just that
It's a sunken old ship
There will be moments
I pretend that I can raise it up
Up out from the depths

Who the fuck am I kidding?
I was born with the curse of always giving in
Every day is another chance to make peace with myself
But I would rather play dead

Sure it looks easy when it's through my lies
A hero has a thousand faces, none of them matching mine
Fuck the world, fuck the stars, fuck the person you are
But nothing will matter if I don't give up folding my cards

I keep tripping over the same steps
These words are beautiful
Advice is never useful
And I still walk the line held tight with my regrets
I'd rather die than live like this
I gotta give, I'm giving in
I have got my eye lids stapled shut

    Please don't listen to these words! Please no one harm themselves or think it ok to! God, jesus and me love you way to much for that! Salvation from god... Believe... Repent of all sins( quit doing them an ask god to forgive you for your sins... Confess that jesus christ is the only son of god and that jesus christ died for your sins, in front of people... Be baptized under water as jesus christ was, as a sign that the old sinful person has died been buried in a watery grave and rose up again ( as jesus did on the third day after death) as a new person to be a child and follower of god and jesus christ... Be faithful to god and jesus christ till jesus christ returns for gods children. Thats what it takes to be saved... Not my thinking but gods word through jesus christ and the holy spirit into the bible.
