Hell is where you put me 
And hell is where you're going to 
Until the next life 
I say this twisted prayer for you 
May the torment you put out 
Come back around twice multiplied.
Even though you let me go 
I've got to let you know 
I'd cry if you died.

The past is where you see me 
The past is what will bring you down 
Destiny a moon eclipsed 
In the shadows all is darkness now 
May the evil in your heart 
Be your one and only friend for life
You pretend I don't exist 
I have to let you know 
I'd cry if you died
Somewhere special 
Voices form words 

And the words have meaning 
So I reach out for someone new 
And I wonder 

Will it ever be alright 
(then I hear you secret radio 
Signaling that its time to go)
Hell is where you put me 
And hell is where well meet again 
I will be waiting 

To repeat a scene that never ends 
Molten pools of mockery 
Reflect a million sleepless nights 
Even though you acted low 
I've got to let you know 
I'd cry if you died
