alone against the wall

topless rhetoric spun across the stage to a beat that evoked the pain of truth in me

faultless toxicity runs through my open wounds for everyone to see

abominated and abound by the chosen jest that was so easily handed down again in that instant replay

lost in the mix I wonder exactly what it is that I'm suppose to say

everybody wants a fuckin' piece of the emotional pie, uncaring if I'm left with none

it seems it's all come down to gestures of love in vane, leaving the game without one

bellowed out a miserable rhapsody as the choir joined in to place a bet on the term harmonized

blood flows freely from the veins that should have been removed or cauterized

the romantic tragedy packs a powerful punch just past the punch line

addiction maddened by such insidious lies to the final crime

alone against the wall

this bullshit was my call

tonight I'll cry into the darkness and see past every part of this

my strength is made perfect in my own defiant weakness

so journey back from where you came and fly away

nothing left to prove, your lies are all that's left to say

the soft kiss

it is time to say goodbye, it is time for the end

no more happiness found now that I am free of sin

it's a lonely walk down an empty street, I can't seem to care

when I reach out my hand, no one is there

left to embellish the past with taunts of returning to the start

making war out of love became my perfected art

only bridges burned just beyond the insanity of yesterday

a voice shouting out that has nothing left to say

so much damage, so many battlefields with hearts left broken

so easily scoffed at the madness in the words I have spoken

the keys won't work on the door, my soul is out of business

my pain is so great that my damnation is listless

only a few more steps to a journey of finality

the soft kiss of death is all that's left for me
