Now I see
I never knew closed eyes could kill me
Now I know, and I see you for who you are
I've spent too much of my life watching you hide inside
Hoping you'd pull it off but you're far from anything real

She said let the slaughter begin
Her tears spill to the floor
What a beautiful sight it is
As she lays down to again, to die again

Once and for all I want someone to owe what's mine
Look to the future with no more lies
I'm writing you up for the final time
This was just the point of pleasure was all mine
This will be the last time, the last time I try

Now I close my eyes

She said let the slaughter begin
Her tears spill to the floor
What a beautiful sight it is
As she lays down to again, to die again

    General Commentare you kiddin, first comment?
    this song is beautiful : )

    i think it goes about sexual abuse. and the pain to over come it over and over again. and knowing she can't fight back.
    what happend sadly to candace (the front woman)

    General CommentI agree. Sad song, but great that she's overcome her abuse and is a stronger person because of it.

    Candace also sometimes appears on stage with In This Moment singing or screaming, in their song about their front woman Maria Brink's abuse called Daddy's Falling Angel. Two women unite in metal excellence.
