Cheat Death

from by Bent Life



I've been stabbing at the dark
Some way of praying for an ending Bruised and beaten
Hardened breathing
I've been fighting a war that I can't win
A room full of no one
Myself against myself
And I never meant to drag you down Because if you wanna know the truth
It's that I'd break this fucking world in two for you
if that's what I had to do
I need your hand to pull me back From that dead-end sting of doubt Like I'm pissing on a burning building
Like I'm burning just to burn out
Now I'm braking harder
Those spinning feelings are slowing so I can't lose grip
The sheer fact of living's like I'm cheating death
And I've been trying
But understanding mercy
While I'm hanging from a rope
Has me feeling like humanity is one sick joke
And I can't stop laughing
I've been dying to live
Playing absolutes
In a time where faith's misused
Burdened by my own morality
You know I love to lose
Abandon old traditions
Break the unwillingness to change
There are no second chances
The clock ticks until it breaks
I'm giving everything I have to give
Fighting a war I can't win
