Sacrifice

  • It's so familiar to me
    A gun in your hand, a hole in my chest
    And now you strike a match and inhale
    It's now to the point where it's all so routine
    The anchor's up, your ship has been sailed

    Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind
    Satisfy your worst intentions, I'm your sacrifice

    Dressing yourself up to kill
    You do this for peace, you do this for love
    But you know there has to be loss
    Lives torn apart as you've hit your mark
    You'll take your share at anyone's cost

    Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind
    Satisfy your worst intentions, I'm your sacrifice

    The metal is cold to lift and to hold
    But now my heart feels the warm undertow

    I cannot breathe, the way I feel about you suffocates
    I will not speak, the words I feel about you go to waste
    I will lay here until my body washes up on shore
    I'll sacrifice with everything I believed in before
    I'll get back up and do it again

    Close your eyes to fight the demons deep within your mind
    Satisfy your worst intentions, I'm your sacrifice Writer/s: SHANE TOLD
