lyrics

State the facts. What’s your name?
Why did you kill? Are you sane?
You left a long trail behind
Of motives to unwind
Can you tell us where is the knife
That you used to take his life?
Please help us to understand
Why you did this to this man?
He took away my life. Why wouldn’t I take his?
Incorruptible, impenetrable, this is pure justice
To take away my love and leave nothing in return
I don’t know what you would do, but it’s a hard lesson to learn
So you admit you did the deed
If everyone thought like you where would we be?
We have a moral obligation to uphold
You can’t turn on those who turn on you and kill them cold
Tell me why I can’t when I don’t care about him?
Why should he live while I die?
I was at a point of no return
A single match that burns
Well I don’t know what you would do, but it’s a hard lesson to learn
You sit in the shadows while I take the fall
For killing your lover you did it all
I’ll do this for you because I love you
I’ll wait for you. Will you wait too?
One last thing before I go
You admitted but I have to know
What happened to the knife
That you used to take his life?
