Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go throw it all away?
In my dreams it's me and you, it's there I saw it all come true
As time went by faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do (finish you)

I feel it burn inside, burn like the rising sun
Lifted into the sky, took away the only thing I loved
I know after tonight all your power crumbles in my arms
So don't worry, I'll be fine, when my life ends, I'll leave this scar

A smoking gun in your hand, now don't you realize what you've done
Put a bullet in his back, your hero since you were so young
How could you kill the man who brought salvation through your pain
He must mean everything to end it all this shameful way

I started here so young and helped you get along
Just did it for the love, and people healed through us
Don't live your life in vain, don't take it out on me
You're cracked, so just remember, I'm not your enemy
I don't deserve to fall this way, by a man who felt betrayed

I felt so down now you're around to rescue me
Every note and every word i'm listening
Sometimes problems seem too deep to take
Sometimes I cry thinking my future looks so bleak
Finally, together we were destined, I know what's best for us in the end
Someone hear me, someone stop me, someone listen, why aren't you listening?

    General CommentThis song is about the death of the legendary guitarist Dimebag Darrell. M. Shadows himself has said this.

    General Commentdefinitely a great song, i think the whole song is from shadows perspective on how much he respected and appreciated dimebag, except the verse in the middle which to me seems like its from dimebags persepctive after his death, good shit.

    General Commenti know its about dimebag but i think its written through the eyes of the guy that killed him. i think its written about how this guy felt towards dimebag and how he felt when he realised what he had done

    General CommentThis song is about the great Dimebag. heres my perspective of it The first 2 verses are from the perspective of the killer. than the 3rd verse is from the perspective of Shadows, than the 4th verse is from the perspective of Dimebag. Than the 5th verse is again from the perspective of the killer. this is what it means IMO
