Bleed, for a sea of change is overflowing
I've bled this all my life
Pretending you would tell me, and maybe
Show me, and tell me the truth
Bestow what is real
Are you real?

All my life, I was taught to analyze
my changes from deep within
Are you within?
Tell me lies
Tell me a story of sacrifice,
the day you gave your life

Take this, my son
You don't have to fight this battle anymore
No more nightmares
And who are you to tell me that I am wrong,
when all I have done is do my best to be a good man?

Why, oh, why must I pay such a price
while my heart belongs?
See through my soul,
touch the tears from my eyes,
and taste if you will
Taste my desire
The blood flows just as yours,
just a slightly different direction

All my life, I was taught to analyze
my changes from deep within
Are you within?
Tell me lies
Tell me a story of sacrifice,
the day you gave your life

Take this, my son
You don't have to fight this battle anymore
No more nightmares
And who are you to tell me that I am wrong,
when all I have done is do my best to be?

Please save my soul...and my life

In a repetitious life, we follow like sheep,
sometimes with an aimless objective
All this time I've tried to make all happy in my life
Now it's time for me, it's time for me

Take this, my son
You don't have to fight this battle anymore
No more nightmares
And who are you to tell me that I am wrong,
when all I have done, is do my best to be?
And who are you to tell me that I am wrong,
when all I have done, is do my best to be a good man?
