Lyrics

This morning I made the call, the one that ends it all
Hanging up, I wanted to cry, but dammit, this well’s gone dry
Not for the money, not for the fame
Not for the power, just no more games

But now I’m safe in the eye of the tornado
I can’t replace the lies, that let a [Incomprehensible] days go
No more living trapped inside, in her way I’ll surely die
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away

You’ll grow to loathe my name, you’ll hate me just the same
You won’t need your breath and soon you’ll meet your death
Not from the years, not from the use
Not from the tears, just self abuse

But now I’m safe in the eye of the tornado
I can’t replace the lies, that let a [Incomprehensible] days go
No more living trapped inside, in her way I’ll surely die
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away

Who’s to say, what’s for me to say
Who’s to say, what’s for me to be
Who’s to say, what’s for me to do
‘Cause a big nothing it’ll be for me

The land of opportunity
The golden chance for me
My future looks so bright
Now I think I’ve seen the light

Can’t say what’s on my mind
Oh, can’t do what I really feel
In this bed I made for me
Is where I sleep, I really feel

I warn you of the fate
Proven true to late
Your tongue twist perverse
Come drink now of this curse

And now I fill your brain
I spin you round again
My poison fills your head
As I tuck you into bed

You feel my fingertips
You won’t forget my lips
You’ll feel my cold breath
It’s the kiss of death
