09. Death's Door

Punishing Myself Before God Does
by Confessions of a Traitor



 

I look at myself as the reflection I wish to see
But what I project just is not me
Is not me

What more could you ask of a man shattered and put back together?
I wear the stains, the cracks, the flaws
Forever

But until the trauma has taught me what I need to know
Iíll close off, shut down, a lonely march on death row

Forever judged by the things Iíd say
Yet my actions have no weight to this day

Iím told the mountains too high to climb
The walls too strong to breach
Deathís door opens, to swallow me whole
Iím told the mountains too high to climb
And the skies too high to reach
Deathís door opens, Iíve lost control

Thereís something haunting me
Telling me that it all ends tonight
All ends tonight

Thereís something haunting me
Telling me that it all ends tonight
All ends tonight

I ask for mercy
As I journey across dark water
Sound feet and silent breath
A terrifying dance with death

Iím told the mountains too high to climb
The walls too strong to breach
Deathís door opens, to swallow me whole
Iím told the mountains too high to climb
And the skies too high to reach
Deathís door opens, Iíve lost control

Iíve seen the gates of hell
From grace I fell
Redemption is the story Iíll tell
Deathís door opens, to swallow me whole
Iíve seen the gates of hell
From grace I fell
Redemption is the story Iíll tell
Deathís door opens, Iíve lost control

Death at the gates again
Howling my name
Cannot greet you today
Iíve got a war to win

Death at the gates again
Howling my name
Cannot greet you today
Iíve got a war to win
