Killswitch Engage II Lyrics

Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. Never Again (3:09)
I want you to suffer, as I have suffered
This is a war of attrition and I won't cease

Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
You will never, be forgiven
Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
I hope you suffer as I have suffered

You are dead to me, and time won't heal what you've done
You have made your grave, now make your pledge

Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
You will never be forgiven
Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
I hope you suffer as I have suffered

Never again will I be betrayed
Never again will you crush me
Unforgiven, unforgiven
Remember these words, remember my face
Suffer as I have suffered

[Guitar Solo]

Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
You will never be forgiven
Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
I hope you suffer as I have suffered

This is what you deserve
2. Starting Over (3:52)
Yeah!

Come on!

Do you remember what we used to have?
As if all our dreams were possible
All that existed was you and I
But distance has torn us apart

Forgive me for all that I've done wrong
Lead me back to where my heart belongs

Can we start again?
Go back in time to where we started
Can we start again?
What we had can't be discarded

Do you remember the promises we made?
But somehow we have lost our way
Take me back to where my heart belongs
Forever grateful every day

I know that you doubt my words
I swear there will never be regret

Can we start again?
We thought love was everlasting
Can we start again?
What we had just can't be wasted

Silent vows were broken
And words that can't be taken back
But you mean so much more to me
Than anything I've ever known

And this is the hope for tomorrow
That today you will return

Can we start again?
Go back in time to where we started
Can we start again?
What we have can't be discarded

Can we start again? (Do you remember?)
Can we start again? (All over)
Can we start again?

Go back in time to where we started
3. The Forgotten (3:17)
You were once the source of a pureness that can't be defined
And now you curse the day, how can you leave your faith behind

Just look at yourself do you like what you see
I want no more of you, watch me walk away

This is your last time you are forgotten
You let your dreams die you are the forgotten

Placed your ego above all but misplaced your innocence

Just look at yourself do you like what you see
I want no more of you, watch me walk away

This is your last time you are forgotten
You let your dreams die you are the forgotten

What have you given up will never return again
Now you're dead inside I hope it was worth the cost
I hope it was worth the cost I hope it was worth the cost
Now you're buried alive

This is the last time
This is the last time you are forgotten
You let your dreams die you are forgotten
4. Reckoning (2:39)
You are no God to me
You are nothing to me
This is a reckoning

Enjoy this while it lasts
It won't be long before it dies

You've stolen lives and broken dreams
No man can be a deity

You are no God to me
This is a reckoning
You are nothing to me
This is a reckoning

Was the penance not enough?
Was faith not enough?
No man can be a deity

You are no God to me
This is a reckoning
You are nothing to me
This is a reckoning

And I will be there
To see you fall
You are no God to me
There is a reckoning

The betrayed will now see the truth
And the broken-hearted will finally re-hear
You will be judged
And you will be found wanting
And we'll be there to see you fall

You are no God to me
This is the reckoning
You are nothing to me
This is a reckoning

And I will be there
To see you fall
You are no God to me
There is a reckoning
5. The Return (4:28)
Alone, once more alone as the memories weave and fade away
Separation mocks me frustration consumes me
Inspiration has grown cold, even as the longing renews

Desperate, I return to you. Broken, I return to you
We circle over and over. But still I return to you

What will it take to escape you? What will it take to escape you?
Is this what you wanted, to see me humbled
Is this what you asked for, the final word

Desperate, I return to you. Broken, I return to you
We circle over and over. But still I return to you

I would tear my eyes out to never see your face
But all of these scars can never be erased
Choke on your words that have left me bleeding
And may your tears burn

We circle over and over...still I return...I return

Desperate I return to you.
Broken, I return to you
We circle over and over.
But still I return to you

What will it take to escape you
What will it take to escape
6. A Light in a Darkened World (2:51)
I see so much corruption
And it's hard to ignore
Living on greed and possessions
Is this what we're dying for?

Now choose this day
Who you will serve
To be the light in a darkened world

Many are willing to only live for themselves
Turning away from morality
Nothing can save you now

Now choose this day
Who you will serve
To be the light in a darkened world
You feel dissolved and the water's beginning to rise
Become the light in this darkened world

This is destiny
The choice is now defined
No more deception
Now change will come

It's in your hands
It's in your hands

Now choose this day
Who you will serve
To be the light
In a darkened world

It's in your hands
It's in you hands
Become the light in this darkened world
7. Take Me Away (2:47)
Watching once more, as the world passes me by
Surrounded but still all alone, Am I living a lie?
Empty faces,
Empty eyes

Are staring right through me
No regrets
But I still ask why

Take me away
To a peace I've never known

This is the price I've paid and it's taking its toll
Can it be too much to ask for the time it stole?
Empty faces
Empty eyes

Are staring right through me
No regrets
But I still ask why

Take me away
To a peace I've never know
Take me away
Where my life can be my own

I only wish that I had stayed
I only wish that I had known

Take me away
To a peace I've never know
Take me away
Where my life can be my own
Where my life can be my own

Take me away
Take me away
8. I Would Do Anything (3:22)
The words die in my throat and there is nothing I can do
From a child to a monster, and now a child among monsters
Your life is a mockery twisted in the wind
Is this your legacy of ignorance

I'll give my heart and soul to see you free again
I would do anything

So many mistakes have led to this disaster
Ten years of reflection don't waste a moment
Are you loathe to seek the truth you must choose

I'll give my heart and soul to see you free again
I would do anything
If you could see the hope I've always seen in you
I would do anything

The weight that's crushing can be relieved
Leave the sins of the past at your feet
Pray for life or bleed to death. Pray for life or bleed to death

I'll bleed the reddest blood to see you live again
I would do anything
If you could see the hope I've always seen in you
I would do anything
9. Save Me (3:44)
So much that I've done wrong it's an open book
I've done much more than my fair share of damage

What once was hidden now is crystal clear. Transformation is within me
To break the cycle I must turn to you
What I lack I gain through your virtue I gain through you

Even when I fall will you still believe. Even when I'm lost will you still believe

Shattered by the hate that I carry
Take me as I am and make me whole again
I am lost without a purpose always consumed by self
I freely give this calloused heart can you forgive me

Even when I fall will you still believe
Even when I'm lost will you still believe
Now I don't have much, will you save me
But I'll give it all, will you save me

I've made so many mistakes
And I've broken so many promises
I've searched inside and I'm empty
Will you save me Will you save me

Even when I fall will you still believe
Even when I'm lost will you still believe
Every time I fall will you save me
Even when I fall will you save me
10. Lost (3:46)
It's even louder in the silence and it's always the same
The darkness always finds me when I hear your name
It should have been me and I want you to know
That I'll hold you in my heart and I won't let go
Just take away this sorrow it's too much to bear

Drifting from your memory. I'm lost, lost without your love

Now the time goes by, but the torment remains
If only I could wake and see your face again
There would no more regret for all the things I never said

Drifting from your memory. I'm lost, without your love
It's getting harder to face another day without you
I'm lost, lost without your love

I wish as I was as strong as you were in the end
But the darkness claims me, and I fall once again

Drifting from your memory. I'm lost, without your love
It's getting harder to face another day without you
I'm lost, without your love
It's getting harder to face another day without you
Lost
11. This is Goodbye (4:16)
This is my goodbye [x3]
But please don't say a word.
I don't exist, I can't be heard.
Each day is a new failure
Every trial is permissive
Every step I gain I only fall back faster

This is my goodbye
But please don't try to stop me

There is nothing left
There is nothing left

[Chorus:]
It's over, please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go
It's my choice so please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go

I am no martyr, this place overwhelms me.
Once again I could last
I see no way to be free
I search for the answers
Is there no solution?
I realize my reflection
My reflection is my demon

[Chorus]

It's my blasphemy, hoping not to wake.
(Each day...) it's a nightmare, sleep in freedom
You gave but it was not enough
Your strength, it was not enough, never enough.

[Chorus]
