Lyrics


We're rolling suicide


Wake up (wake up)

Grab a brush and put a little make-up

Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up (hide the scars to fade away the...)

Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?

Here you go create another fable


You wanted to

Grab a brush and put a little makeup

You wanted to

Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up

You wanted to

Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?

You wanted to


I don't think you trust

In my self-righteous suicide

I cry when angels deserve to

Die


Wake up (wake up)

Grab a brush and put a little make-up

Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up (hide the scars to fade away the...)

Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?

Here you go create another fable


You wanted to

Grab a brush and put a little make-up

You wanted to

Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up

You wanted to

Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?

You wanted to


I don't think you trust

In my self-righteous suicide

I cry when angels deserve to die

In my self-righteous suicide

I cry when angels deserve to die


Father, father, father, father

Father, into your hands I commend my spirit

Father, into your hands

Why have you forsaken me?

In your eyes forsaken me

In your thoughts forsaken me

In your heart forsaken me, oh


Trust in my self-righteous suicide

I cry when angels deserve to die

In my self-righteous suicide

I cry when angels deserve to die
