It's so fucked I am here doing this
It's bullshit, things don't end like this

I'm calling,
Staring into this place,
Where I cease to exist,
Wondering, why do things always end up like this

Chorus:
Jon: Fly
Take to the sky another dream of empty
Jon: Lies
Of promises denied by a forgiving
Jon: God
Who eats his young you're nothing you fucking
Jon: Fraud
My belief was betrayed I lost my faith in you
Jon: Try
To understand the sorrow and the
Jon: Why
Of a light that should still be burning
Jon: Bright
The angel in flight with a dog by his
Jon: Side
When you took him away I lost my faith in even you!!


It's so fucked I am here doing this

I'm calling,

Chorus:
Jon: Fly
Take to the sky another dream of empty
Jon: Lies
Of promises denied by a forgiving
Jon: God
Who eats his young you're nothing you fucking

My belief was betrayed I lost my faith in you
Jon: Try
To understand the sorrow and the
Jon: Why
Of a light that should still be burning
Jon: Bright
The angel in flight with a dog by his
Jon: Side
When you took him away I lost my faith in even you!!

As I feel emptiness growing in my heart
I can't help but scream into hating you
I bet you think it's funny
You give us a gift and then you take it back

    General CommentIt's KoRn's contribution to the Strait Up album, in memory of Lynn Strait...... I really like that song because it can be taken in many ways, but it's basically about the death of a really great guy, and how a people feels afterwards... I love this song, and it fits considering a nice guy at my school got killed memorial day...
