Lyrics

Son take me away
Son give me a good life and
Rewrite all the problems that I've made
Son give me hope
Son give me a good death and
Forget all my struggles, all my pain
The troubles of the past have gone away
And it's a new day

I've made myself into a dream
A familiar face you've never seen
A heartbreaking requiem melody
All in the name of paternity

And I'll murder you with my words
I am a massacre

I'll take you away
Down to the river
Where the sirens wait
I'll teach you my name
With water and wicked
As your shallow grave
Where innocence withers
And hatred is answered
A pathway created
As flesh turns inanimate

Softly
Slowly
You are the stain upon my soul
The one thing I can't let go
You are everything I hated
But never quite enough
To crush you into dust
Until you took my purpose
The one I'd never trust

And I'll murder you with my words
I am a massacre

I'll take you away
Down to the river
Where the sirens wait
I'll teach you my name
With water and wicked
As your shallow grave
Where innocence withers
And hatred is answered
The pathway created
As flesh turns inanimate

Like you were alive
Heaven-sent
Kairos on its head
A broken frame left bleeding red
A shadow appears and my eyes alight
Your killer in my sight
And I arrive
With empty promises I'll aim for more
This blood I can't ignore
You've stolen him from me I'll watch you fall

I'll take you away
Down to the river
Where the sirens wait
Where innocence withers
I'll teach you my name
In water and wicked
An enmity unending created
I'll take you away
Down to the river
Where the sirens wait
Where innocence withers
I'll teach you my name
In iron and ember
A pathway you've chosen me to wander

A changing of names
Your life is retreating
I scrabble to save
You're dying you're bleeding
Your suffering ends
While mine's just beginning
A final word
Please

I've got a friend in the background waiting
