Hold me to the promises I make
And tally up all my sins
Steady the gun right between my eyes
Don't let me look away

So sick of running
Can't be me, can't feel me
I'm standing on the edge
And this time I'm not afraid

Corner me with black walls
But don't let me disappear
I need to know that I'm grounded
It's time for me to give in

Tell me how I broke your heart
Let me know that it hurts
Even though I know the truth
Is the last thing I deserve

****** the knife in further
Pull it out, see me bleed
Let me struggle to catch my breath
And I'll fight until the end

End this final showdown
So that we may be released
Pull the trigger, point blank
And my sins you shall repent
