lyrics

There is a story
Lost in time
A man took his family
His kids and his wife
Out to a lake
Where summers were spent
He was sick of his life of regret
Creeping loneliness, faking smiles
He never wanted to endure these trials
With his loved ones, he grabbed a gun
He put a bullet in all, except for his son
He said, "Listen boy, to my words. Everything's broken and everything dies. There's only ashes, no fire in your eyes."
"What are you doing?!"
Dad's mouth full of lead, "I'm solving my problems," is all that he said
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree
And the vine that choked my father is wrapped 'round me
I walk the path he did years ago
And I think I'm near the end of the rope
End of the rope
I beg, I plead, I cry for help
But there's no answer
Looking to the sky, only to scorch my eyes
I think this is the end
Cannot stop it, cannot stop it, cannot stop it
No
Scorch my eyes
Black out the sun
Ready my grave
Feeble minded
Sadistic sense of peace
I'm not worthy
I come from heartbreak
I stand on meager bones
I pray for my sake
I pray I don't die alone
