Could I end my life with a knife sharpened of problems
sweet satisfaction of a night sky with horns
a papercut bleeds like a cut vein
could this sky open up and accept this tortured soul
but my wings have yet to work
change means nothing
when nothing wants to change
save your strength for the first disappointment
break this mirror that changes you
forever is such an unpleasant word
it begins to eat you / from the inside out
beg for sleep
as the noose is tied around your neck

    General Commentthis means to me that no matter how much you think death will solve al the suffering you feel, it will never go away. the pain will stay with you forever, thats why "forever is such an unpleasant word" because knowing that the pain will never go away makes forever seem unbearable...

    General Commenti think this song is about someone who wants to die but doesn't want to commit suicide because he knows that if he kills himself he's not going to be awarded heaven, so he has to wait in agony till the day that he dies.
