  • Heaven's gone and hell is here
    There's nothing left for you my dear
    So grab a glass and pour a drink
    Learn to swim before you sink

    Go
    I can't remember the last time I smiled
    God it's been a while
    So much hate I've held inside
    Behind these eyes there's a devil inside
    Behind these eyes there's a devil inside

    Life's too short for you to die
    Ignore the lows make sure you're high
    And don't you ever look back

    Let it sleep, let it sleep, let it sleep
    I've almost given up
    Oh God I know I'm fucked

    Something is just not right
    I need to leave this place
    Out of mind, out of sight
    My evil thoughts can't hide
    And I am trapped in my own mind, own mind
    There's not a thing you can do
    You're fucked and I am too
    There's not a thing you can do
    You're fucked and I am too

    Trapped in hell I'm all alone
    With my sins staring through my soul
    I guess there's no way out
    Let it sleep, let it sleep
    And beg he won't wake up
    Let it sleep, let it sleep
    Oh God I know I'm fucked

    Pray for death
    Nothing left for you to live for
    Sick of your god damn lies
    Hiding behind dead eyes
    I never needed you
    No god above, no hell below me
    Screaming but no one's there
    Praying that someone cares
    No one believes in you
    Still alive but barely breathing
    Stabbing me in the back
    I never asked for that
    Drinking away your pain
    Taking everything for granted
    I hate you

    Something is just not right
    I need to leave this place
    Out of mind, out of sight
    My evil thoughts can't hide
    And I am trapped in my own mind, own mind
    There's not a thing you can do
    You're fucked and I am too
    There's not a thing you can do
    You're fucked and I am too

    I can't remember the last time
    I can't remember the last time I smiled
    I can't remember the last time Writer/s: BENJAMIN PAUL BRUCE, DENIS SHAFOROSTOV, JAMES ARTHUR CASSELLS, JOSEPH STURGIS
