soaked in a stench of emotion and flesh
there were twelve (sleep in self defeat)
i saw none
felt the beat of my gun
sirens screaming blue and red
my sweet lullaby to bed

i did not start this war of secrets, but i will end
snapshot, photograph
you've got one second to capture that laugh
just numbers no names
all that we have come to hate this is where it starts
the stop and go of our lives dropped
the needle sang but now
it has stopped
and voices cling to frozen air
i'm not there

retrace the footsteps that have dried
in the wet cement of my mind
on a lost mission just to find
a rusted memory that's dried
and left years worth of salt in the lining of my eyes
behind these gates of wood and iron
i search for the answer
like a gumshoe insomniac staying up all night
with a mystery to crack in the name of the father
the son and the holiest of ghosts
to the demons that you love the most you'd say
through life and death
i will follow you down to the ends of the earth
through life and death
my organ will play on

now it's about that time ladies and gentlemen
where we tip our bartenders and tip our hats goodnight
i got my gun to the left nestled beside me
i found that perfect place where i can sleep and you can't find me
here they come
they come for me
this song that i'm playing i am playing for the world
a love letter written by the hands of time
time i can't take back
time i can't take back
time i can't take back
time i would have killed to take back

yes i am the organ donor but what you don't know
see, i rob from the rich and give back to the poor
the sad and lonely
sick and homeless
have i lost faith in the ways of the system?
the people are lost, but who's sick of losing?

can you touch me?
say you care?
all those answers lost until i found
the questions in these dirty sounds
the stage is set for final bows
so put me in the fucking ground
stay with me i can't do this alone again
shots rang out the day i left
they hit me through the head and chest

songs played on the day i left
