With the scars on my heart far from the back of my mind

Everyone said that moving on pain could heal with time

With the hate that I bleed drowning me from within

The tight rope of safety is growing rather thin

And any day now I'm going to break

Living in that moment when I threw it all away

Half of my face covered by dark

You can still see the blackness on both sides of my heart

Make our choices and break our bonds

Eyes of smoldering coals and blood that doesn't belong

What once was great comfort are now just more empty words

Forgetting what life feels like when living doesn't hurt

What once made me happy is now reminder

My lost broken soul now belongs to the finder

I'm waiting for the ice to break

Just enough to take the pain away

Half of my face covered by dark

You can still see the blackness on both sides of my heart

Make our choices and break our bonds

Eyes of smoldering coals and blood that doesn't belong

With the shooting on the streets and the taste of disease

Dead bodies at my feet and the sounds of defeat

You may beat me today but in no time at all

You'll have to take little yellow pills to get a cheap thrill

Cry myself to sleep on every Sunday night

Then again on Monday, I'll say I'll be alright

I don't want to have to price myself

But I guess I'll take a shot

I don't want to have to prove myself

But I guess I'll have to start

Half of my face covered by dark

You can still see the blackness on both sides of my heart

Make our choices and break our bonds

Eyes of smoldering coals and blood that doesn't belong

With the shooting on the streets and the taste of disease

Dead bodies at my feet and the sounds of defeat

Cry myself to sleep on every Sunday night

Then again on Monday, I'll say I'll be alright
