Redemption

from by Red Handed Denial

lyrics

Stuck in this in-between and tethered by the guilt
I set myself free
In this forgiveness of self, I’m breaking the chains
So I may leave this world in peace

Greed is a hunger that won’t fill the void
Just a false sense of happiness to us all
With only emptiness left
In the darkness the rage was beginning to grow

But once you spill the blood
You’ll never rid of the stain
Realizing too late, is it too late to change
Break free, atone, and surrender your pride
What a sight

Following the fantasies you devise
You find yourself at the end of the road
Running from the shadows in the night
Surrounded by the exit signs
And there’s no turning back

Buried the fear and unrest
Only to manifest as regret
I could have painted the walls with red
Or jumped off the fucking ledge just to hear the sound

But once you spill the blood
You’ll never rid of the stain
Realizing too late, is it too late to change?
Break free, atone, and surrender your pride

Following the fantasies you devise
You find yourself at the end of the road
Running from the shadows in the night
Surrounded by the exit signs

Will you remember the person I thought that I could be?
Will you remember my innocence?
Will you remember? Wish I could erase everything
Will you remember my innocence and for who I could have been?

To know that your days are numbered
To know that your time is short
Death is what gives life meaning
So who will you be at the end of the road

Letting go, going home

Remember me not for the mess I’ve made
But who I could have been
Finally I’m going home
Letting go, letting go
Running from the shadows in the night
Surrounded by the exit signs
Rise above the shadows putting forth your hands
Finally I'm going home
Rise up, rise up above the shadows
Finally I'm going home

Letting go, going home
