The smoke still lingers on me
From the barrel of your gun
But it wasn’t this that shot me
Just the malice of your tongue
 
The licks of ammunition
Trigger thoughts inside my head
What brought about this apathy?
Do you really want me dead?
 
But your wrath is unrelenting
And it pierces through my heart
As I wait for the bullets to empty
I begin to fall apart
 
Now a weapon for destruction
Once meant to protect my fate
But madness overcame thee
And clarity came too late
 
So I put up no resistance
As I watch the bodies pile
The only one left standing
The redemption makes me smile
