lyrics

Midnight's been chasin' after me
and she'll beg to break the secrets I swore I'd always keep
and we both know that she's not givin' up, at least not easily.

I've been a troubled soul for weeks
with blisters on my hands, and bruises on my knees.
I'd let her know I've had enough
If I could only breathe

I'll lie awake in a shallow grave (X2)
Forgive my sins, forget my name, forget the villain I became

Midnight's been lullin' me to sleep
and the devil's singin' to me hidin' underneath the sheets.
I've been running out of luck, and she will have her way with me.

I'll lie awake in a shallow grave (X2)
Forgive my sins, forget my name, forget the villain I became

So it goes (or I've been told) we're growin' old and wise
I'll run away for heaven's sake, lest hell finds me tonight

The only time I've ever felt alive is when i'm playin' dead (X2)

I'll lie awake in a shallow grave (X2)
Forgive my sins, forget my name, forget the villain I became
