about

In this case, I'm not writing exclusively about a seductress, more of a hybrid - a conductress. I survived, but only though dumb luck and my general aversion to public transportation.

lyrics

Killer Of Hope

Swear I'm gonna break free
From the grip of sin
From that killer of hope...

'cause all I see is that killer of hope.

Well, did I ever think to think?
I didn't even try
I should have listened to the wise
Now its too late - I knew better

There's nothing good here
And it's time that I put this out-
All I am to you is another doubt

I don't believe in nothing
I don't believe that I care
Don't try to make me do it
All I need is just a little push, not a shove
And I'll get off the fence in a while...

She's the killer of hope
With a conscience that is clear
She understands I'm just a man
With a common fear
She's just what I need to forsake
But it's not that easy

[x1 How much more can I take?]

[x2... not supposed to be]

Now that I know her
I am never looking back
I've been beat up, I've been spit out,
I know shit, jack...
She may be my killer of hope
But if she calls my name now
I ain't going back

So now it's up to me
The future that I see
My spirit growing dark
And I fear (Oh God, I fear)
The moment that I try
My moment wants to die

Swear I'm gonna break free
From the grip of sin-
From that killer of hope.
