I believe in clean breaks
I keep the old troubles away
But you're making sure
I was lying when I said

I can't leave this behind
I need you to ruin me
For this finally
'Cause it's bearing me

Now I'm in these old knots
Each move keeps me locked away
With each new embrace
I've tied myself up more tightly into you

Oh, but the more I fight
And the deeper I'm trapped
And I can't break free
Of this hold that you have

And I crave you more
Under the heat of your touch
And I need your skin to ruin me

For this wicked town
Where your ghosts are bound to me
One last sacrifice for this ritual

Stay
(I believe)
In this ritual
(In clean breaks)
I was lying when I said

(I believe)
In this ritual
(In clean breaks)
I was lying when I said

(I believe in)
In this ritual
(In clean breaks)
I was lying when I said
I believe in clean breaks
