My hand to God

He's got ears that you wouldn't believe
And brother once you go to him
It's your soul you can never, never, never retrieve

These blood red eyes
Don't see so good
But what's worse is if they could
Would I change my ways?
Wasted times
And broken dreams
Violent colors so obscene
Is all I see these days
These days
