It's time to leave this burning ship behind
It's time to come to terms and realize
There's nothing to be found in that left behind
But reddish traces of forgotten crimes
And I fear the rage will grow above my head
When oil gets spilled, the fire fed
The precious bounds of forgiveness almost met
Indeed I'm better off remembering instead

Every day I diagnose myself and I see more of what I hate
This can't be happening
Oh, cruel twist of fate

Your equal, your sequel
(A copy of a copy)
Please tell me I'm not (x4)

I'm looking at a face I don't believe this can't be my legacy
Say I'm not like you, swear I won't end up like this
What remains is courtesy and all the rest is history
Say I'm not like you, swear I won't end up like this

What's mine remains the bond between our lives
I see you in the mirror with my eyes
The spitting image of that worthless life
The shiny happy family a mere disguise
And yet I vow to myself I'll change
The detriment done I'll re-erase
No more will I be marked as what you made
Now all that's left is to face that I'm afraid

Every day I diagnose myself and I see more of what I hate
This can't be happening
Oh, cruel twist of fate
Slip into your skin
Weed out the rot
And reap the right that lies within
Not repeat the mistake
And hate myself
But learn to accept my fate instead

Your equal, your sequel
(A copy of a copy)
Please tell me I'm not (x4)
