The Last Firstborn

Oh man, i can’t believe that you did what they said you did
And to this day i’ve still gotta say that in my mind i question it
I wish i knew what you had meant
Before you went and left me
Wondering to just an echo of your voice
‘listen…’

Now i wait to take my turn to bleed like a kid playing with a razorblade
And wonder if i have the balls at all or am i gonna be afraid
where are you? what do you think?
cuz i’m not sure when knocking at death’s door if i will be welcome in or be left alone outside

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(listen–my son)
I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down
(firstborn-last one)
I hear the din of the screams,
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(listen–my son)
I see a heart set free and my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow that is beckoning me
(firstborn-last one)

I guess there comes a point
When you think to yourself
This isn’t worth it,
It isn’t worth it
And now i feel what you felt,
And now i feel what you felt inside brother
And now i feel what you felt
This isn’t worth it,
It isn’t worth it!

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(listen–my son)
I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down
(firstborn-last one)
I hear the din of the screams,
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(listen–my son)
I see a heart set free and my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow that is beckoning me
(firstborn-last one)

I wish it didn’t…
I wish it didn’t…
I wish it didn’t…
I wish it didn’t end this way

Live a life in hell
Through a mortal shell
Asphyxiating smell
For a crime lifetime
Imagination locked in a cell
And to the other firstborn,
I see the same scene that
must play over in your mind and now
how much more i’m sure it’s fucked with
your head just like it’s fucked up mine.

Listen my son
Firstborn last one
The message you sent out to me
i can’t change what’s meant to be

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(listen–my son)
I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down
(firstborn-last one)
I hear the din of the screams,
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(listen–my son)
I see a heart set free and my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow that is beckoning me
(firstborn-last one)
(Firstborn)
(You on the last one firstborn)
