An eye for an eye
Leaves the good men blind.
I’m the last one alive,
But I’m burdened by the night.
I wish I had something to say
To make it better.
Another notch to the rope,
Another burden to my crown.
There’s nothing here to stop me from an early grave.
(Tie the noose, follow through)
It’s either join the ones I love or suffer as the Devil’s muse.
An acquaintance of the hangman came to see me today
Naïve to disarray
You should’ve seen the look in her eyes
When she saw I lost the light in mine
Clara my dear,
I’m not a man filled with many regrets;
I’m not a man filled with many regrets,
But I wish I had taken my life instead.
Hated to the bone.
Yet she sees through my breaking nerves.
I opened my heart to a stranger.
Connected through woe; tormented angel.
She came to terms with who I am;
I won’t let this become my final number.
Their weight comes crashing down;
It’s like I bear their conscience atop my crown
That sits so badly on my head.
Fuck it, take me now.
I watch their roses bloom and wilt.
I wish to join them; this is survivor’s guilt.
Let me bleed like a weeping wound.
Take me instead.
I’d give them all their lives back for my death;
Everyone I’ve ever loved, the dead in the mud.
Father forgive me for the damage I’ve done.
Survivor's Guilt tells the story of how the lovers in the tale of 'Flesh & Bones' first came together, before the events of Villain, and the argument that ensues between them. As the track unfolds, Sherlock begins to come to terms with the destruction that he has caused and feels remorseful to those who have lost their lives, though not without losing his sense of narcissism.
The video reflects the inner emotions the two feel towards each other, despite the unspoken respect they have.
Welcome to the Sect.
