Pure and self-contained, I feel the weight of my words on my soul as my voice strains.
I've bled, I've got no regrets for anything I've lost, but I've lost my self-respect.
Fear is self-confessed, it doesn't count for nothing when you're coming out second best.
I can only hate. Is it worth the wait.

I cannot forget, I cannot forgive.

Lie will sow the seed that reaps deceit and it's growing all over me.
I can only face the truth when I stand in the shadows of the human race.
You can justify cutting your throat to make you smile, but I cannot forget and I cannot forgive.

I cannot forget, I cannot forgive and I'll break my back to bring you down.
