Counter Betray

It's not a puzzle that can be solved 
Not a posession that you can keep
There is no warmth to offer you company
It shoots to thrill you, dead in a dream 
You broke a promise, I'd die to keep 

I would indeed, but why should you care? 
To try and break it 
I couldn't sleep, but why should you care? 
To confiscate it 

Holy rollers are here to preach again
I have  been sold out here as a sheep 
Feeling naked other than the rain on my skin 
The cold in the throat makes it hard to breathe 

Tomorrow seems like any other day to die 
Don't worry, you'll have some company 
With the guilt you aim to disguise 

I would indeed, but why should you care? 
To try and break it 
I couldn't sleep, but why should you care? 
To confiscate it 

And I'll have more fun than I have had in years 
And when you sleep again, I will infect your tears 
And when I breathe, you won't be there 
No one to to try and break it 
No one to confiscate this
