Winters like a plague I fill the emptiness inside with broken glass
Johnny's got his gun and mamma's still cleaning up the blood he's laying in
It's the long goodbye
All thoughts become a mirror like anguish mimicking me
When it's cold here mother I can see my breath on the window
And I wonder what you thought of me
Don't you turn around and leave me alone
Everyone's standing here but I'm on my own
Don't you turn around and leave me alone

With my curse casted in chrome
It's the long goodbye
Trust like a bandage binds your head
To the guillotine and I know there's and empty space in your bed
Where we used to sleep afraid of waking up dead
Rest your weary head tomorrow we'll bury fallen gods in holy ground
15 hours left til the redeemer claims his tax in human souls

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. I also heard it on the Warped Tour compilation, and it's one of the few songs I like on there. I could listen to this song for the rest of my life and never get sick of it. <3
