[Music:  "Sober", Tool]

There's a shadow just behind me,
shrouding every move I make,
leaving every promise empty,
pointing every demon at me.

Waiting for the flashing signal
of the bracelet on my wrist.
Murder's just an occupation,
just another way to live.

Give me some justification
other than our noble cause!

Why can't we not be soldiers?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we live forever?
I just want to start things over.

I am just a worthless cipher.
I am just an instrument.
Love is just a complication.
Fall for me and die content.

If I find a soulmate in you,
I will only lose my own.
If we start a life together,
One of ours will surely end.

Trust me.

Cara mia, won't you whisper
something that will keep me sane?

Trust me.

I don't want to die.
