[Verse 1]
You’ve heard it all before, This time won’t be the same, you can trust me”
But you know my *!! game
Say what I have to, to get what I need
Now the evil delivered swings back at me
Weak attempts at change
Carry me backward
Too little, too late
Now live with the hurt
For everything I have an excuse
But some things are not long hidden:
The sun, the moon, the truth

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I live with the hurt Live with the hurt
This is what I deserve

[Chorus]
Break me down, the only way I’ll learn
The guilt is overwhelming
Take me out, the pain of me returns
My sins f*!! destroy me

[Verse 2]
I am forced to face the fire I create
And watch as it annihilates everything
Hold me back while I watch it burn
The price I pay, the suffering returns
Now the hands of fate are here to collect
Nothing here is safe until I reflect
I run from myself, no end in sight
Numb on the inside from living a lie

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I watch as it burns
Watch as it burns
This is what I deserve

[Chorus]
Break me down, the only way I’ll learn
The guilt is overwhelming
Take me out, the pain of me returns
My sins f*!! destroy me

[Bridge]
You can shelter yourself from the sun
And you can hide from the moon
But there is nothing you can do
When the truth strikes its light on you

[Breakdown]
Now I must live with the hurt
Now I must live with the hurt

[Outro]
The pain of me returns
The pain of me returns
The pain of me returns
Now I must live with the hurt

 

Pt. D.V. Paluskar, Raag Yaman Kalyan. The raag that brings auspiciousness.

A home for Peace

Make our songs your anchor. My home is dependent on mercy. Men and women are saved by your hands. Will you save me?  Make our songs your anchor.  You only accept great song and gather to yourself those who please you. This message was repeated over and over again until we gave in. This is the story of the penitent. I have lost much to you. Set your anchor in our home in ruins.
