How many times has it come to pass?
You don’t move forward, you move back.
You’d rather do things on your own.
Disgusted with lies and ashamed of your life.
You’ve place your head under the knife.
Time is running out.

Every night you’re awaking the dead.
So much silence fills your head.
It’s the lie that you augment.
Your happiness, transient.
The life you lead, impotent.
Prepare the requiem…right now!

We could all be saved.
Stripped of all the pain in life.
Why won’t we believe?
Saved by grace and love.
Don’t let this dissipate.
Stay away from heresy.
Life goes by so fast.
It speeds by and we’re left dry, unless we soften our hearts.

A demeanor abashed by an arbitrary life.
The stigma you’ve made by accepting the lies.
You’re losing places to go.
Apprise the world with an exhaustive assay.
The catharsis of song is something not to abstain.
Don’t fear the unknown…be strong.

    General CommentWell basically, duffy told me this " its about people who live life on their own terms, and when it turns out bad, they wonder why, but are too prideful to give it to God". So that is what he was thinking when he wrote it, but everyone can take it into their own terms.
