This Shattered Symphony Lyrics

by Coheed And Cambria

Oh, I'm giving up
The one I love
I'll conduct the great disaster
To scar my skin, to own this hurt

They offered their hearts and we tore them apart
They offered their blood and we left them so parched
I don't know if I can give you
Anything you want

Go on and give me the gun, never mind what I've done
They left me no choice, oh, they left me no choice
Go on and give me the gun, let me blow them open
It's out of my reach, never mind what they think about me

I don't want to say
That with mercy, we decay
Converging closer and faster
Does all I touch turn to dust?

And she confessed her love, only I shut her up
As I took all her words and allowed them to rust
I don't know if I'm the man
You truly want to love, oh

Go on and give me the gun, never mind what I've done
They left me no choice, oh, they left me no choice
Go on and give me the gun, let me blow them open
It's out of my reach, never mind what they think about me

Little have they learned anything about me
Meddling eyes that judge mistakes
What awful things they say
When backs are turned and no one's looking

Go on and give me the gun, never mind what I've done
They left me no choice, oh, they left me no choice
Go on and give me the gun, let me blow them open
It's out of my reach, never mind what they think about me

Oh, in this shattered symphony
Oh, in this shattered symphony

Give me the gun
Give me the gun
Go on and give me the gun
