lyrics

the devil and I are like leather and lace
locked in an embrace with my deepest fears
my neck is a comfortable place
just ask death, it's been sitting there for years

damnation
afraid of what's beyond
I see red flags
I'm trapped by a bond

time's running fast, panic setting in
do I have to account for my every sin?
I'm scared of breathing fast
because every breath brings me closer to my last

aspiration
resisting what's beyond
tearing down my black flag
I want to break this bond

truth lies in the eye of the beholder
and I got death looking over my shoulder
what can't be cured must be endured
but I'll go out on top, rest assured

I love myself and I hate myself and everything in between
I feel close to paradise with my head locked tight in a guillotine
see the noose that I'm untying
be free or die trying
struggling to be who I want to be
I'm under fire in the trenches of reality

half full half empty
I don't care, I'll find my remedy

opposition
fighting what's beyond
no white flags
I will break this bond

witness the phoenix rise
ashes turn to fire in my eyes
with heart overwhelmed
resurrection of the self
now that the dust has settled
witness my prison's foundation crack
I shook hands with the devil
but I had my fingers crossed behind my back

watch me break my shackles
watch me escape my cell
I've learned from lost battles
now watch me raise hell

capitulation
I can't and I won't
I'm breaking this bond
defeating what's beyond

truth lies in the eye of the beholder
and I got death looking over my shoulder
what can't be cured must be endured
but I'll go out on top, rest assured
