lyrics

That eerie music still rung and echoed in my ears
Where did it come from?

Don’t hurt him please
Don’t make him suffer
Don’t hurt him
Please

One second stretched to eternity
I could kill to be there again
That painful moment
Cast a long shade over my way home
I should not have let you live
The hurtful side of reciprocity of wrongs
Celebrates revenge as a violent scene
Then silence falls heavy eyelids close
Replay the dream within a dream

This craving
Immortal
The scalding pain of hate
All years of bitterness went by
Just made it stronger
So many nights
In a sleepless care
Pictured this in my mind
Again and again and again
The steps you're following today
Surely lead to the final stage
I'll meet you there
It will look like an accident

One second stretched to eternity
I could kill to be there again
That painful moment
Cast a long shade over my way home
I should not have let you live
The hurtful side of reciprocity of wrongs
Celebrates revenge as a violent scene
Then silence falls heavy eyelids close
Replay the dream within a dream

I got to think of words to say
As I arrived to witness your end
Was it worth the wait after all?
And did it make me whole?
One breath away from where your heart stops
Our shadows merge and clarity floods
I gaze upon your gaping mouth
Soaked in red my hands shake with joy

Find something to hold on to
Claw at the last scraps of hope
A revelation prologues
Sanctifies the payback ritual
Make cry a prayer
Convulse and devote
Your flesh submits to the fall
With a piercing howl
About to smash
On the street below
Stretched to eternity
With a piercing howl
About to smash
On the street below

Every normal person
Wants to stand well in his own eyes
And the eyes of others
When he does not then he'll seek ways
To achieve that standing
Protective mechanisms offer the wrong route
Finding out what the trouble is
And what sends us into
Defense and escape mechanisms
Is the first step on a road back to reality
