VERSE 1:
she shot up like a switchblade
when i mentioned the blood stains
winding in and out of the cracks on the hardwood floor
and i went off like a shotgun
and struck smiling faces solemn
flipping pews and kicking in the chapel doors
exploding from my seat and crashing out into the street
begging passing cabs to help me take my leave
the last prayer wasnt made yet
but the lobby looked like a train wreck
severe enough to look away but not forget.

PRE-CHORUS 1:
before I hit the ground.
before I blacked out.
a flash of white then I was going, down.

CHORUS:
Im retracing steps to find you out
am I wrong?
hell knows I aint gonna be right
I live in a sheltered, euphoric world
Burn it down, knock it back
Give me that sweet serenity

VERSE 2:
these words couldn't mean less to me
just like your scene,
its gonna die someday you'll see
and you'll raise a fist in protest
with gun smoke deep in your chest
picking sides, dousing yourself in gasoline.

PRE-CHORUS 2:
before she posted bail.
before I turned pale.
I shouted out Ill see you all in hell.
