Lyrics

Release
I release you from my grasp

Give up
I give up my faith in you

Sick
Sick of you in my head

Rebirth
My life begins again

You're not everything that I want
I don't even know what I want
You're not everything that I need
I don't even know what I need

I'm ready to live again
No more hurting for someone who's not there
And never was
Barely felt your touch
You didn't give me much at all

Close the door and lock it tight
Don't know if it's wrong but I know it's right
Bury the key underneath the ground
Light it up and watch it all burn down

Release
I release you from my grasp

Give up
I give up my faith in you

Sick
Sick of you in my head

Rebirth
My life begins again

I've been here long enough
Now I've got to give you up
It's time to say goodbye
And get you off my mind

Close the door and lock it tight
Don't know if it's wrong but I know it's right
Bury the key underneath the ground
Light it up and watch it all burn down

Release
I release you from my grasp

Give up
I give up my faith in you

Sick
Sick of you in my head

Rebirth
My life begins again

This is the last time I think of you

Lyrics

Who will you be today
Another lover
Another liar
Another friend
Another crier

What is your next motive
To befriend
To fuck
To ignore
To open new sores

What's it like to wear a mask
Being something like what you wished you had
An amazing site to behold
Your obsessive self
And your phony hell
You use to attract the kind
Attention is the way you please your mind

Believe me, try another way

Story

I was motivated to write this song for a friend in the marines when I'd heard that he would soon be deployed to Iraq. An exercise in power through music.
