A flash through my memory
like an illuminated sky
Twenty-five years
I've been waiting to die
Stare deep into my eyes
you'll see it's so easy to cry

My life is in a tailspin
Waiting for a moment to act
Trying on another skin
Seeing my beliefs attacked
But don't cry for me
I'm already dead

I've got to live to die
and I've got to die to live

Drinking from the tree
I breathe new life
Like an infusion of blood
and an end to my strife
But why does it never end?
I've suffered my desires

I feel paralyzed
motionless and still
You don't see what I see through these eyes
I've been learning to live all my life
Now I'm being taught how to die
Look into my eyes and see how easy I cry

I've got to live to die
and I've got to die to live

I won't feel loved again
I can't feel love again
I won't open up my eyes
I can't open up my mind
I've been given too many lies
I've been blinded too many times
Close my eyes one last time
See a tear fall from my eye

I've got to live to die
and I've got to die to live...
in peace
