I can feel it creeping up behind me
I can feel its breath upon my ear
I can feel its skeletal hands guide me
Out of the corner of my eye, I can see it drawing near

I can hear it slink among the shadows
I can hear its laughter on the wind
I know it's preparing for the gallows
I know that it's craving to hang me for my sins

But I will still fight for my redemption
God as my witness, I will make a stand
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
And I just want to be a better man

I can see it counting all my errors
I can see it clouding up my eyes
The nights are long and dark and filled with terrors
It knows my faults, it knows my fears and lies

I can tell that it knows that I am trying
Watches my attempts and cocks its head
It doesn't know that I am slowly dying
Because it thinks I am already dead

But I will still fight for my redemption
I'm doing what I can, and can't you see
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
And honestly, I just want to sleep

I am nothing but collective malice
Piled up in books beside my bed
It's the rabbit and I'm always Alice
Fighting all these monsters in my head

And try as I might to fight for my redemption
I do my best, but what's done is done
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
And like all the times before, the devil won
