You may be saying Theres profit from pain But What do you wage When theres no gain From this game Would it be the same If you were being weighed Twisted insane Tortured for shame Paying the price For somebody else Who ever said There isn't a hell If your living a debt That's not your own What do you say When it's not your home It's not your life It's not your toll But you owe it all To some other fool You got put and thrown Deep Into this skin Now this time You need to win It never was This way before But this time around You want it more The results the same Your paying the price Now your saying This isnt right So the game Must change For your sake? It stays the same Stuck inside Bound and tied Your web of lies Bereft your plight Your still engaged Masochist Under paid Without a way To plot your revenge Or claim a head No way to save Your altered state Unwind your web Or break your fate Now you wish You change your mind The tides have swayed But you still died.
