You twist the knife
And I'll take the bullet
You start the fire
And the world then turns for you

Isn't it right?
Isn't it a crime?
Isn't it cruel to be so kind?
But it's all an act of love and it leaves you blind
And I'm not here to reason or deny
I buried you in a poverty of time

Sometimes there's no other way
You said the things you need to say
At the greatest price
Over a meaningless fight
Didn't it used to be so fine?
Sometimes you need the dark to see the light

You roll the dice
And I play the fool
You turn the tide
But the soul steps through your eyes

Isn't it right?
Or is it just lies?
Isn't it cruel to be so kind?
But some temptations promise you paradise
And I'm not here to listen or confide
And I've paid my debt to a world that bleeds you dry

Sometimes there's no other way
You said the things you need to say
At the greatest price
Over a meaningless fight
Didn't it used to feel so right?
Sometimes you need the dark to see the light
