  • State of love and trust as I busted down the pretext
    Sin still plays and preaches, but to have an empty court, uh huh
    And the signs are passin', grip the wheel, can't read it
    Sacrifice receiving the smell that's on my hands, hands, yeah

    And I listen for the voice inside my head
    Nothin', I'll do this one myself

    Lay her down as priest does, should the Lord be accountin'
    Will be in my honor, make it pain, painfully quick, uh huh
    Promises are whispered in the age of darkness
    Want to be enlightened like I want to be told the end, end, yeah

    And the barrel shakes aimed a directly at my head
    Oh, help me, help me from myself
    And I listen from both sides of a friend
    Nothin', I'll do this one myself
    Myself, myself

    Hey, hey
    Uh
    Hey, na-na-na-na, hey, that's something
    Hey, na-na-na-na, hey, that's something
    Hey, na-na-na-na, hey, that's something
    Wanna back, back it away, yeah

    And I listen, yeah, for the voice inside my head
    Nothin', I'll do this one myself
    Oh, ah, and the barrel waits, trigger shakes
    Aimed right at my head, don't won't you help me
    Help me from myself

    Woo, hey, ooh
    Hey, ooh, hey, ooh, hey, ooh
    Woo, woo

  • Andy from Taunton, MaWhat an amazing song. If this would have been on "Ten" that album would have been even more amazing than it already is.
