LyricsEdit

It took me years to make my motives clear

And the days have not been kind

Once a steady gaze and charming smile

Has me buried in the lines, I find

I walk in the noise, quiet employs

And darkness seems to know just where I am

Mother wash the devil from my hands

Pray the lord I have the strength to stand

Mother tell me was it all a lie

Show me where the angels die

Those words have never found my lips

They're words I'd soon forget

Thought the trick was never to look back

But it seems I've lost my grip, I slip

The faster I run now, the closer the gun now

And so now, all the bullets bare my name

Mother wash the devil from my hands

Pray the lord I have the strength to stand

Mother tell me was it all a lie

Show me where the angels die, die

Took the road but should have chased the stars

Now I've lost my own way home

Had a photo of the times we shared

But I burned it long ago, I know

I struck all the matches, stuck in the ashes

Forgive me, won't you simply speak my name?  

Mother wash the devil from my hands

Pray the lord I have the strength to stand

Mother tell me was it all a lie

Show me where the angels die, die

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

(Took the road but should have chased the stars, now I've lost my own way home)

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

(Had a photo of the time we shared, but I burned it long ago)

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

(Took the road but should have chased the stars, now I've lost my own way home)

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

The faster we run now, the closer the gun now

And somehow we all found the warmth of the gun now

(Had a photo of the time we shared, but I burned it long ago)
