lyrics

Broke, back, bent
Can’t lose my will to carve my
Epitaph, bleeding on my choice to
Crawl, hands on my knees
Can’t catch a breath to spill my guts.

Throwing stones, down the well
I’ve given my youth, to fill the
Hole I’ve found, dug for me
13 choices till I die, holding roses
And the arm of a ghost
Making my plea to the reaper

Setting sun, keep your head in the clouds
You’re shadows are forgiven, and your warmth is still around

Face to Face, eye to eye
The dagger’s pointed up toward the sky
Placing bets on my life
Dependent on how the hand deals my strife
Broken nose, to bleeding lips
No control over a scale that tips
Placing me in the jungle
On top of a death wish, bottom of the food chain struggle

Temptation to end it all
Try to keep my sanity
More I climb the more I fall
Don’t get back what they take away

Offer my bones to deliver
Giving my soul to the river

The Cottonmouth sinks it’s fangs into my skin
Lay me to rest
