  • Another day and another full seizure
    Another pill, you spiral down deeper
    Another cut by a surgical butcher
    It's just a way of prolonging the torture

    I won't say I don't know what I'm doing
    I won't say that I'm sorry

    I can't bring you back but I can't leave you helpless
    I'll make the pain rest in peace

    I'll turn off the light and
    Swallow your last breath
    So close your eyes, fall asleep
    I'll never hurt you
    I'll never hurt you

    The sun shines on this deadly new morning
    The church bells ring an early warning
    Your eyes shine as I turn on the motor
    The tears fall as the mercy gets closer

    I won't say I don't know what I'm doing
    I won't say that I'm sorry

    I can't bring you back but I can't leave you helpless
    I'll make the pain rest in peace
    I'll turn off the light and
    Swallow your last breath
    So close your eyes, fall asleep
    I'll never hurt you

    I can't bring you back but I can't leave you helpless
    I'll make the pain rest in peace
    I'll turn off the light and
    Swallow your last breath
    So close your eyes, fall asleep
    I'll never hurt you Writer/s: KEVIN CHURKO, OZZY OSBOURNE
