Lets break it down..
One on one...
What you have..
You thought you won..
Now you see your hell has begun..
You had to have what was
not yours to take..
Now you are sorry..
Want to walk away from this
grave mistake..
Put your hands
where they just didn't belong..
Now pay the consequences..
This consequence is life long..
Live in your tiny cell..
Think about the life
You took..
Was it worth it?
Maybe not..
But then to you maybe so..
See if you feel the same
as you grow old..
Watching life pass you by...
And you think you are the only one
to pay..
What about her family..
Your family..
Lives changed in one single day..
Changed forever..
Grief so strong you can smell it..
Taste it..
Children's hands filthy..
For their mother..
The one YOU took away..
Lets break it down..
One on One..
You have a coldness in your eyes..
You are man without a soul..
Don't know how you got that way..
Don't want to know..
The devils son..
Live in your pathetic mind..
While we live
in the one you created...
With the crimes you have done..
Watch the little girl cry..
You held her in the palm of your hand..
Lets break it down..
One on one..
They say our life has just started..
I think our hell has just begun..
If you break it down
one on one.
