Been lost in the darkness for so long,
I can't see the life.
I been strung out, burned out, left out,
And hung out to dry.
So I say to myself that I wanna get better
Hidin' from the truth, I can't last forever.

Jesus, help me
Obviously, I can't help myself
I've got nobody else.
Send me an angel: someone to strangle,
That old demon that's hauntin' me there on the shelf.
I can't help myself.

And my excuses are so old an' tired
Hell, I forget 'em.
I keep fallin', an' crawlin', an' drownin'
Down here on the bottom.
Yeah, I've pushed back my brothers, said goodbye to my friends
When you get in this deep, the hell never ends.

Jesus, help me
Obviously, I can't help myself
I've got nobody else.
Send me an angel: someone to strangle,
That old demon that's hauntin' me there on the shelf.
I can't help myself.

Gimme a reason to live an' show me a sign.
I'm on the edge goin' out of my mind.
I'm down on my knees: I'm beggin' you please,
Make me somebody else: I can't help myself.

(No!)

I need something stronger
Pour it all over me.

Send me an angel, someone to strangle,
That old demon
'Cause you know that I never will.
I can't help myself.
