We both know how this ends
I'm on my knees screaming, "Save me"
Free from this hell
I don't want to stay here (I'm ready to leave)
I really hate to ask this (I'm ready to go)
Just close your eyes and squeeze, do this for me

One shot to end this all,
We both know there's no going home,
One shot to end this nightmare we can't wake from
Our love is what got us here
We fought so brave despite our fear
Your song is what's making this oh so hard

Say goodbye to the hero
Say hello to the martyr
You made me your scapegoat
Send me straight to the slaughter
But you created a monster
Eventually something had to give
Nothing more terrifying
Than finding your will to live

There's more to life than this
There's more to life than feeling like you're broken
There's more to life than this
There's more to life than feeling like you can't get by on your own
There's more to life than this
There's more to life than dealing with their bullshit seeking their approval
There's more to life than this
There's more to life than just being okay with the life you've been handed

We're not done yet, not by a long shot
There's still so much work to do

    General CommentEither you didn't do a great job with lyrics or they changed it for the version I know. Either way, great song.
