Back Down To Hell

Ab0ut knowing that you can't outrun your fate, but giving fate hell trying to catch you.

These streets breathe like they're alive

and here I am running for my life

because I know someone is watching me

Someone knows everything about me

Can't find another breath

I feel the darkness approaching

Have you ever felt this close to death

That the cold hands of the dead

are slowly encroaching

Tonight i'm burning up

Buried underneath all the sorrow

hands reach up to take me down

I'll be gone this time tomorrow

These streets breathe like they're alive

and here I am running for my life

because I know someone is watching me

Someone knows everything about me

Screaming for my redemption

I don't even want to apologise

get me away from this life

I'm looking in every direction

trying to break out of this space

Tonight i'm burning up

Buried underneath all the sorrow

hands reach up to take me down

I'll be gone this time tomorrow

Screaming for my salvation

what the hell have I done

it was never possible to run

hoping just to misdirect them

anything to win the race

Now before I'm taken away

let them know I fought til the end

Before i'm dragged back to hell

let this whole world know

instead of pondering and dreaming

I went to hell kicking and screaming

Tonight i'm burning up

Buried underneath all the sorrow

hands reach up to take me down

I'll be gone this time tomorrow

 

The End
