Forgive all my sins, I know I'll commit them
I know what will happen when I trade reason for loss of control.
A call to arms, with holes and scars,
With healthy minds we enlist into war.

You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know.
There will be an angel weeping tears of blood that stain the earth below.
You'll lose yourself, but you won't find any peace, you won't find any hope
You'll lose yourself. Is this where you belong?

You try to avoid it, you try to abstain,
But it relentlessly takes it's control.
You must obey, you'll cower now,
You've surpassed your threshold for pain.

You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know.
There will be an angel weeping tears of blood that stain the earth below.
You'll lose yourself, but you won't find any peace, you won't find any hope
You'll lose yourself.

Is this where you be you and not the one who's trapped inside?
You can make a difference, look into your mind.
Your memories are what defines who you really are,
That's what makes you special, beautiful.
You can still be loved, you are held in such high regard.

Your blood is contagious, summoning desperation.
Your mind is a blur, a chemical spill, you need to wipe it out.
You must fight, you must stand, you must believe in yourself.

You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know.
There will be an angel weeping tears of blood that stain the earth below.
You'll lose yourself, but you won't find any peace, you won't find any hope
You'll lose yourself. Is this where you belong?
