Teach me how to sacrifice,
I'm told that I don't know a thing
But maybe with some time alone
we'll both learn what it means
I feel as though I owe you more
than just these words of gratitude you read
So before it ends, my friend,
I'll teach you how to (bleed)

Show me where to tread to get ahead,
I fear that I don't know the way
Cause this honesty and sincerity
has brought me only pain
Show me how to make them trust the lies
to give me what I want for free
You've got it all, now there's just one thing,
just one thing

Your soul, I'd say that it's been sold
But was it ever there?
Cold, It must be cold so far below
But keep digging, you're almost there

So long, goodbye, I can't say I wish you well
But best of luck to you in Hell
Don't speak, there is no need to drag this
through the thorns and knives
Cause now it's time we said goodbye

I've waited for so long in this prison for so long
Served my time and I managed to survive
Lied to for so long, beholden for so long
...But now it's over

So long, goodbye, I can't say I wish you well
But best of luck to you in Hell
Don't speak, there is no need to drag this
through the thorns and knives
You know it's time we said goodbye

GOODBYYYEEE!!!!!!

So long, goodbye, I can't say I wish you well
But best of luck to you in Hell
You don't get it, it's so pathetic,
but one thing you can't deny
Is that it's time we said goodbye!!!! goodbye!! goodbyee!! GOODBYE!

    General CommentWhat it means to me atm is taking something from someone for your own selfish gain and wishing them goodluck afterwards (godspeed = goodluck).

    I've got a sick mind but when listening to this song I can envisaige a girl being raped, while keeping in mind that medievil cultures treated rape victims as sinners but can also see it as a virgin getting laid for the first time at a party - a one night stand sort of thing.

    Lol
