    When I was younger I saw my daddy cry And curse

    at the wind. He broke his own heart and I watched As he tried to reassemble it. And my momma swore That she would never let herself forget. And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love if it does not exist. Paramore- The only exception <3

    Take me to church I'll worship like a dog at

    the shrine of your lies... I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife... Offer me that deathless death... Oh good God let me give you my life...

    Slipknot - Snuff

    Bury all your secrets in my skin Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins The air around me still feels like a cage And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again... So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know. My heart is just too dark to...

    I gave you all of meBut it still ain't enough

    to make you happyI gave you everythingIt still don't measure upIt feels like I walked 5 thousand milesAnd didn't even come closeFeels like I try to make you smileBut you don't even care, no
