tourniquet
iNsEcUrE_GoTh_GiRl
i tried to kill my pain
but only brought more
i lay dying
and im pouring
crimson regret
and betrayal
im dying,
praying,
bleeding,
and
screaming,

am i too lost to be saved?
am i too lost?

my god, my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my god, my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me?
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me

i'm dying
praying
bleeding
and screaming

am i too lost
to be saved?
am i too lost?

my god, my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my god, my tourniquet
return to me salvation

i want to die
my god, my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my god, my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will i be denied?

christ

tourniquet

my suicide..........

string spine Sometimes when I would listen to tourniquet I had the feeling he meant it as if the tourniquet were around my neck choking the very last breath out of me 040801

iNsEcUrE_GoTh_GiRl tourniquet seems now to me to be the noose of christianity slowly tightening around the freedom of choices of and in and about other religions. 040802

A tourniquet just is not good enough...
I will try and stand on it any way in pain...and it will never heal.
So just shoot me and put me out of my pain...
Maybe ..my roommate can pawn my shit and pay the rent...

aM i DiStUrBeD? "My God my tourniquet, return me to salvation".
Chocking the freedom of choices we in faith and other faiths have? Evanescence are, and this is publicly known, Christians and their faith is very important to each and every one of them. You may not think so, but I on the other hand kinda see where they are coming from. Have you read Ben's thank-youís on the album Fallen? I think that this is cool that he can speak so openly about himself and the faith that he has, that he leaves himself open to scrutiny by what other people may think.
I think, now I know you may not agree with me as you are indeed entitled to you own opinion as this is mine, but I think that the song is all about faith; lost, found and forgotten.
All of you, I apologise for using such a vague generalisation, may not agree with me or even follow a faith of your own, but as a believer this song speaks to me. On levels spiritually and mentally. Personally I do not agree with the way that you talk about this song meaning the ďnoose of ChristianityĒ, but I also respect your opinion.
Ok, if somehow you find out that they arenít all Christians then I apologise for making the presumption, but in fact does it matter? One member of the band at that time was and he obviously had some input, however small, into the song.
I suppose we will never get this argument totally resolved as we didnít write it, but I think that we can speculate. For now, that is my opinion and this special song along with my interpretations of it will go back into my heart and mind where I can continue to relate to it in various ways.
