There's no way to tell you
There's no warning bell
No one can prepare you
For the fires of hell

Tried to make it clear
I told you all
Left my mobile on
But you never called me

Telephone a friend
But he don’t wanna talk
Leaving you a message
I’m gonna end it all

Seeing many things but you don’t observe
You just never thought you’d ever see me
You'd ever see me here
Opening your ears but you don’t hear a word
You just never thought they'd be...

Taking everything they could take from me
Breaking everything they could break of me

You’ve made idols from the stars in your eyes
You’ve made an idol
And now the idol dies

Seeing many things but you don’t observe
You just never thought you’d ever see me
You’d ever see me here
Opening your ears, but you don’t hear a word
You just never thought you’d ever see me
You’d ever see me here

I've held my peace for a long, long time
Still and quiet I speak my mind
You pretend to listen
Pretend to sigh
Like you give attention and have the time

Switch your eyes to caring
Your voice to lie
When it gets heavy and makes me cry
You huddle in the dark but walk in the light
Giving me an answer that makes you right

Taking everything they could take from me
They're breaking everything they could break of me
But if I have you for me then I have everything

Sip the cup of wine to toast
Hold the break before its broke
Some cast lots to get the cloak
And some deny the things they know
But they'll remember what was said
When its lifted from the dead

Nothing's hidden
It's all exposed
It's all in the open and overthrown
Going back home with my blood on your clothes
Blood on your spirit
The blood on the skull

Words to the face
Fists were thrown
Hurting so bad
You're hurt and you're torn
They left me for dead
He left me alone
Gave me for nothing
I’m leaving you hope

Taking everything they could take from me
Breaking everything they could break of me
But if I have you for me then I have everything
