It's so familiar to me;
A gun in your hand, a hole in my chest,
And now you strike a match and inhale.
It's now to the point where it's all so routine,
The anchor's up, your ship has been sailed.

Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind.
Satisfy your worst intentions. I'm your sacrifice.

Dressing yourself up to kill;
You do this for peace, you do this for love,
But you know there has to be loss.
Lives torn apart as you've hit your mark.
You'll take your share at anyone's cost.

Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind.

Satisfy your worst intentions, I'm your sacrifice.

The metal is cold to lift and to hold,
But now my heart feels the warm undertow.
I cannot breathe. The way I feel about you suffocates.
I will not speak. The words I feel about you go to waste.
I will lay here until my body washes up on shore.
I'll sacrifice with everything I believed in before.
I'll get back up and do it again.

Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind.
Satisfy your worst intentions, I'm your sacrifice.
