When you said family, did you think it would last?
The way you slash and burn whatever's in your path
That makes me sick, the way you deal
But I am on to you and soon I'll be gnawing at your heels
At your heels

I'll leave you with this warning
A peaceful aside
There's more to life than pain and battle cries
My words don't change much, but neither does my mind
If I don't make a difference, at least I know I tried

It must be pretty easy going on and on again
Living through each other, oh through all your other friends
Then maybe you'll grow older and then one day you'll see
How you destroyed the rest of your family

I'll leave you with this warning
A peaceful aside
There's more to life than pain and battle cries
My words don't change much, but neither does my mind
If I don't make a difference, at least I know I tried

The music in my head won't let me rest
The muscles in my throat won't let me scream
Can't sing myself to sleep tonight
Will I ever sleep again?
I'll sleep when I'm dead
