Lyrics

quietly I am screaming for help
I calm down and steady myself
collapse to the ground when I realize I can’t breathe
could this be happening? what’s happening to me?
all the walls are closing in on me and
confusion makes it hard to see
still my pounding heart is bleeding for you
I know the truth and I start to sweat,
sweat, sweat, sweat
why the hell am I here?
I start to sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat
have I succumbed to fear?

why am I trying the undying, a ghost of such elegance?
oh why am I racing to be facing a vision
of something so perfect?

I am willing to give whatever it takes to
find forgiveness for my mistake
so I’m going to take a chance and invite
the unknown to a deadly dance

I have laid eyes on you and yet it does
seem as if the earth moved
I know the truth and I start to sweat,
sweat, sweat, sweat
I will have you tonight!
I start to sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat
you will be mine tonight!

why am I trying the undying?
a ghost of such elegance
oh why am I racing to be facing a vision
of something so perfect

I am willing to give whatever takes to
find forgiveness for my mistakes
so I’m going to take a chance and invite
the unknown to a deadly dance

as I rise to conquer the demons I sense
that the darkness awaits

the road I walk is paved with a thousand unmarked graves

I am willing to give whatever takes to
find forgiveness for my mistakes
so I’m going to take a chance and invite
the unknown to a deadly dance

as I rise to conquer the demons I sense
that the darkness awaits
