Lyrics

In my mind, I hold a secret
Nothing worth your time
Say the word, and I'll reveal it
Then it won't be mine

Once you take it, you must keep it
Save it for a time
When the lies are common knowledge
Truth will still be mine

It's a curse, it's a hex, it's a just reward
For the time, for the place, for the world to end tonight

Tell me something I already know
About love and anger
And I'll give you something in return
For your betrayal

For your silence, I'll reward you
With my heart and soul
When the time comes to reveal it
I'll take back what's mine

It's a boon, it's a gift, an injust reward
For the time, for the place, for the end to start tonight

Tell me something I already know
About love and anger
And I'll give you something in return
For your betrayal

In my mind, in my heart, in my darkest dreams
I give strength, I give hope, I give nothing back
It's a lie, it's a truth, it's my own reward
For the time, for the place, for my love to start tonight

Tell me nothing I don't want to know
About love and anger
And I'll give you something in return
For your betrayal and your life
