Verse 1

My head is on the guillotine.

Punishment I deserve for my sin.

I'm a criminal in your eyes.

Go on, execute me, take my life.

Verse 2

My head is on the guillotine.

The closest to peace I've ever been.

I'm a rotting corpse in my mind.

It's time to leave this cruel world behind.

Chorus

And as I take a breath for the very last time,

As the weight of this world slowly comes down on me,

I close my eyes and go back to when you were mine,

And my innocent heart was on the guillotine.

Verse 3

My head is on the guillotine.

Put me to rest after all I've seen.

I'm disgusted by your coldness.

I'll be safe in eternal darkness.

Verse 4

My head is on the guillotine.

Detach it from my sleek meat wrapped skin.

I'm ready to embrace sweet death.

I'm tired of all your twisted charades.

Chorus

And as I take a breath for the very last time,

As the weight of this world slowly comes down on me,

I close my eyes and go back to when you were mine,

And my innocent heart was on the guillotine.

Bridge

Can you ever wash the blood from your hands?

Can you ever call yourself a good man?

Can you ever forget the charming words you said but didn't mean?

Can you ever forget the dreamer you put on the guillotine?

Chorus

And as I take a breath for the very last time,

As the weight of this world slowly comes down on me,

I close my eyes and go back to when you were mine,

And my innocent heart was on the guillotine.
