Knock knock knock 
Sound the blows to the forehead from the
Mock mock mock 
Of the words, a voice I hear every morning 

Life stalking me from yesterday 
The taunts of one who sought to frame
The picture of this desolate
This figure cowering 

Every word a double edged sword
A double edged sword
My every word

Drop drop drop 
Sound the sledge to the metal 
Shot shot shot
Sound the pin to the chamber 
My own words pound after me
Intentions bent on conquering
The very will I proudly claimed
Was the very axe that cut the nape 

Every word a double edged sword 
A double edged sword
My every word

(I'll never, ever look back
Sitting still, sitting still
Arrogant mindset of lusts
They search and strain and drink and stagger 
When we are hollow 
Sitting still, sitting still
You hate us cause we'll never go away) 

"You can drown
In your own mistakes
Burrowing into the black
Or you can take my hand" 

Double, edged, sword
My every word 

"This gift was never yours
So why would you ever think 
That the words you said were your own? 
I have chosen and breathed and forgiven and changed and purged
And cleaned and forgave and bathed and carried and soothed and burned
And spoken and spoken and spoken and spoken and spoken and spoken
And spoken, yours is not to proclaim, but only to obey"
