Verse: (simile to intro)

B5
i want to be clean, i want to be whole
i want revenge, i want control

          E5
i want to give up, i want to give in
destroy all i have been

             B5
i want to be cruel, i want to be cold
i want a chance to sell my soul

                E5
i want to break out, i want to dive in
to lose myself in sin
