Opium

Opium

A Poem by Texas
"

Once again, I've taken Breaking Benjamin lyrics and have rewritten them. This time it's to their song Breath. Best if listened to the official video.

"

I want nothing more than to let go

The more I try, the more I die

 

Dear opium, in my veins

 

I have nothing left to give

Am I confined in my own mind?

 

Dear opium, free my soul

 

I sacrifice myself, to give you all I have

Freeze the raging fire burning in my veins

I’m losing control again, help me, please

 

You ease the pain in my soul

You bring me down when I’m too high

I can’t fight the day without you

Be my salvation, opium

 

Accidental suicide, they say

It was an accidental overdose

 

Dear opium, thank you

 

I sacrifice myself, to give you all I have

Freeze the raging fire burning in my veins

I’m losing control again, help me, please

 

You ease the pain in my soul

You bring me down when I’m too high

I can’t fight the day without you

Be my salvation, opium             

 

They’re crying

They’re praying

They don’t realize, I’m free

 

You ease the pain in my soul

You bring me down when I’m too high

I can’t fight the day without you

Be my salvation, opium
