lyrics

A haunted man, a hollow soul
This body is vacant, an empty vessel for blood flow
Existence has just become the persistence of a pulse
Hope has been force fed
Contingent on purpose

Will you bless me with your grace
Before I bless my wrists with blades?
(Take me away, take me away)
Will you take my pain
Before I succumb to self hate?
(Take it away, take it away)

Existence has just become the persistence of a pulse
Hope has been force fed
Contingent on purpose

Growing up I was taught that the only promise I'm guaranteed in life is death
So if today, I end it all, will the numbness finally subside?
It seems that everything in my life has become hopeless
It's all hopeless
Happiness is a metaphor for when pain finally sits at ease
(Take me away, before I take away myself. This body is vacant, I'm numb for now. Take me away.)

Will you bless me with your grace
Before I bless my wrists with blades?
(Take me away, take me away)
Will you take my pain
Before I succumb to self hate?
(Take it away, take it away)

Every promise was hollow
Reassured with a falsification
But death keeps its promise
Death keeps its promise
