Patterns Of Decay – A Fool's Guide For Selling Your Soul lyrics

Come on down
Let me tell you exactly what I have become
I need you to understand that nothing's worse
Than giving into dark desires
Yet hoping that something can save me from myself

So I may change
The parts of me that make me crawl in my skin
Cause I'm afraid I've lost the way

What can I say, I've made some mistakes.

I walk around like I don't care
And I make believe it's all alright
I'll pass on by full of life
But really I'm just dead inside

Walk on by me, walk on.
What can I say, I've made some mistakes.
Walk on by me, walk on.
What can I say, I've made some mistakes.

And I'll dance around with this drink in hand
Staying numb to the pain!

Cause after all this time
I still remain stagnant and alone in this place, in my state
It's better to feel nothing than feign interest for you
Can't you tell I've grown weary from the solitude?

And after all has been said and done
I've grown so disgusted with myself

Can you help me take it away!

How long can I keep this act up?
The curtain call is approaching!

So let me cut right to the chase
The plot is coming to an end!
So let me go, I can't be saved!
