"This gun has stopped time in its tracks, has altered the course of our fate. Destiny is shattered and timeless. Closed eyes feel the cold winds embrace."
-Avenged Sevenfold


Beyond this life lies a world unknown.
Waiting to be shown.
Waiting so cold.

Barriers of fear block my ascent.
Staying where I've went.
Straight lines are bent.

I'm not coming out.
I'm plummeting down.

All it takes is a scream or shout
To begin without.
Scattered all about.

See right through sandpaper smiles.
Waiting for a while.
Walk a thousand miles.

I'm not worried, but I'm still scared.
I wanna live now, but I know it's unfair.
I've got nothing more to give.
I'd die to live.

Crucified by my own hate.
Don't want to wait.
Break these restraints.

I understand it's not a game.
Drenched in my shame.
Only I'm to blame.

I'm not walking out.
I'm rocketing down.

Slashes and scratches tearing my soul.
Heart's like coal.
Taking its toll.

Another day passes me by.
No drive to try.
Living a lie.

I'm not worried, but I'm still scared.
I wanna live now, but I know it's unfair.
I've got nothing more to give.
I'd die to live.

Darkness surrounding.
Wake me from my lie.
Holding me down.
Can't be unbound.

Light is hard to find.
Night engulfs my sight.
Blinded my eyes.
Living to die.

Broken in the black. It's my time.
Boiling over deep inside.

I'd die to live.
