Unbind my hands
Can’t remember where I laid my plans
Syphilitic shadows crowd the bar and drown me out
Everybody’s lining up to tell me what I’m all about

It’s a lot of weight to try to bear on your own
It’s a lot of pain to hold when you don’t have a home
I try to scrape the silver linings off of every cloud
But everything I touch just turns to lead and pulls me down

Maybe I was you in another life
I still have the maps of your mind
Maybe it’s time to surrender and release
What I thought was mine

Unmake my vows
This was a mistake, I’m breaking down and I want out
I wasn’t ready for this path, its power or its pain
But I know I will never be what I once was again

It’s a lot of light to try to bear on your own
And there’s a lot of sleepless nights you just stay awake shaking all alone
But all my supernatural symptoms seem to fade away
The second I remember I am the God to which I pray

Maybe I am
Everything I thought I needed from you
Maybe it’s time to surrender and release
What I thought I knew

And I wanted to fail,
but I tried.

There’s a lot of valid reasons I should want you dead
But I will do my very best to worship you instead
You destroy me perfectly, my enemy, my friend
I know exactly how all this will end, I just don’t know when
