i tried to kill the pain
but only brought more
i lay dying
and i'm pouring crimson regret and betrayal
i'm dying praying bleeding and screaming
am i too lost to be saved
am i too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me
i'm dying praying bleeding and screaming
am i too lost to be saved
am i too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will i be denied Christ
tourniquet
my suicide

    General CommentThe order the lyrics are in is wrong... after the first chorus, it goes straight to 'my wounds...'. Then there's an instrumental break, the chorus, and then 'my wounds' again. No second verse. But it may just be the version I have of this song....

    Personally, I think the Evanescence version has a smoother sound. But then, I DID hear the Evanescence version before I ever heard of Soul Embraced. Pity, because I think they're an excellent metal band. I looove Rocky's guitar playing ^_~.
