enslave my heart, revealed is her apathy.
I'm bounded by a fear of loneliness,
show me fidelity now fill me with a false sense of hope,
this will be reminder of what we once were.
I'll leave your lips soaked with remnants of a love held together by deception.
and death is masked as my savior.
martyred in you heartless name.
the detriment was much too profound for you
to mend my wounds sweetly with your blackened kiss,
my heart you've bled it dry.
you could mean the world to me nothing less throughout eternity.
you're the end of the world to me.
a beautiful contradiction possessing me.
I can give you no more than all the love I have.
take it with you wherever your heart shall lead you.
this is the requiem for broke hearts and empty promises,
with weary steps I will press on no longer,
now watch as the blade cuts through my skin,
and this blood will forever rain up on your guiltless head,
could you hold this close to your heart forever...forever?
Will you hold this close to your heart forever and always.
or will you bathe in my blood forever and always?

    General CommentObviously, someone has deceived him ["show me fidelity now fill me with a false sense of hope"] and she couldn't care less ["revealed is her apathy"]. She meant everything to him ["you could mean the world to me nothing less throughout eternity,"] and he claims it would have never changed. He hopes that she is forever haunted by what she has done to him ["and this blood will forever rain up on your guiltless head."]

    General CommentTHE best IDT song, in my opinion.
    Great lyrics,(what else did you expect from Nick Brooks?),and great breakdowns.
    One of my fav. songs of all time.
    Its meaning is pretty simple, he still loves her, but she's moved on, and left him with nothing.
    He wants to know if she still cares enough for him, to come back to him, or will she just forget about him forever.
