lyrics

If I have to pray to keep you safe,
point to the god tell me his name.
If I have to kill to keep you safe,
point to the man and I will plan his end.

And yes things are simple
you can say that to me
cause the hole in my heart
you can’t see, you can’t see.

Because I must sleep, will you lie with me
burdened by dreams endless they seem.
If I have to die, will you lie with me
in my last bed waiting to feel my end.

Yes things are simple now to that I’d agree
cause the hole in my heart I can’t see
and the hole in my heart
and the hole in my heart
and the hole in my heart
I can’t see, I can’t see.

Through all these hills of evil wills,
hills made of man, man made of fire.
We take our turns and if you get burned
my heart will spill into the arms that kill.

There you will see a man not so different than me
with his cause warm like blood worn like a sleeves.
And the hole in my heart
and the hole in my heart
and the hole in my heart
you will see.
