lyrics

One more left turn,
And I’ll be home to you.
And we can pretend,
Like this never happened.

One more deep cut,
And I’ll be gone for good.
And you can go on,
Living warm and happy again.

I will make you proud again;
If I can just save myself.

Now I’ll shed my skin before your naked eyes.
Do you like what I’ve become?

Now you’re here, and I cry out,
"Please father don’t see me like this."
Your open arms embrace me,
With my open wound still bleeding.
You say "What’s done is done,
We’ll go on to learn from this."
But I’m too torn apart;
I’m broken, I can’t be fixed now.

Now I’ll shed my skin before your naked eyes.
Do you like what I’ve become?

I’ve laid alone for eighteen years now.
This is how I wanna go on,
I don’t need anyone at all.

Let me lie,
One last time;
Let cold earth embrace my life.
I won’t lie;
Won’t say I’ve tried.
Still you stand strong by my side.

You find me cut open and cold,
Too dark to see what I have done.
Please father save your flesh and blood.
Don’t leave me, Don’t leave me.
