Mudvayne - Scarlet Letters Lyrics

My heart is beating but the soul has died
My body's breathing beneath catatonic eyes
The blood is flowing, set free for demise
I've lost my balance but god knows I tried
I don't want to be here anymore in scarlet letters
Carved into what once was me
Once was yours no more
An uphill battle I failed to climb
I left it all now and I don't mind
Betrayed and broken consumed by the lies
Farewell to you all, I'll be fine. Goodbye
I don't want to be here anymore the scarlet letter
Torn in two, a piece of me, the peace in you no more
Do you believe in loss
Do you believe in faith
Do you believe in death
Now that I'm gone
Forsaken me, ashes to dust just let me lie
Lay me to rest, I've done my best but lost my sight
Turning my back, leave me alone let spirit rise
Knives in my back, all hope is lost
Say goodbye
I don't want to be here anymore in Scarlet Letters
Got to go, what once was me, once was yours, no more
I don't want to be here anymore,
I don't want to be here anymore the scarlet letters
Carved into what once was me, once was yours no more

    I don't wanna be here anymore in scarlet letters
    Got to do, what once was me, once was yours, no more
    I don't wanna be here anymore the scarlet letter
    Turn into, a piece of me, the piece in you, no more

  5. Jessie A

    Could someone please tell me what a Scarlet letter is?? 🙃🤔🙃


    perhaps a reference to a book where those guilty of infidelity had to wear a scarlet letter or something like that, just an educated guess tho

  14. Bradley Wilson

    You can tell you don't own it because the damn lyrics you fucking typed don't match the song. I clicked this hoping to learn the lyrics to this song and you helped to make it a complete shit show. Thank you fuck you bye

  15. Michelle Wingrove -Mccauley


  16. Reprehensible Meshuggah

    Ugh this still hurts in 2019, but that’s life. Mudvayne is truly one of the greatest metal bands of all time

  19. Mr.Wellington Von Duke III

    No more pain... plz god no more pain. :)

  20. Mr.Wellington Von Duke III

    I use to play this song before I entered ok foods chicken prossceing plant, hoping god would strike me down before I submitted myself to 12 hours of pain. I hada jeep Cherokee with double polk audio subs

  21. Richard Bermudez

    I probably be dead if it wasn't for music like this.. this keeps me going..


    Your still alive because there's a big part of you that knows hell is way worse then this.and u no hells real !!! NaeNae Gillespie


    The more you listen to depressive music it will make your situation worse, then again what do I know?🤘

    Psycho Bastard

  22. farrah barnes

    Your lyrics are a little off but still a great song

  23. Bw Little

    music is life, so if i want to die it's fine, just letters to write.. dark inside .

  24. Thor Odinsson

  28. Trevor David's

    love this song

  29. Deverie Cram

    I so love you HAROLD this song remind me of his hate towards me

  30. Deverie Cram

    HAROLD ROWING I aint going to be here no more you was waa my life

  31. altarwork

    Never heard a more honest singer in all my days. Swear the guy reminds me more than anything that I'm not alone in the world. Props to you Chad for the fight you fight everyday to keep breathing here with us.

    Chris Laney

    Libras feel it all

  32. Karen H

    I love this. God, Chad has an amazing voice. I’d love an all acoustic album, or even just an ep. Who’s with me?

    Josh burris

    Karen H I’d love anything by mudvayne at this point

  33. lifes good

    i wonder how many people killed themselves due to this song

    black bird

    PLANET BOOM probably less than it has saved, hearing songs that you can relate to statistically reduces the chances of someone killing themselves

    Randy Lorimor

    black bird i agree. Listening to songs that are so extreme and full of hurt kind of relieve you of it when you listen to someone that relates and Chad grey and the boys have kept me from doing stupid shit plenty of times

  34. Tristan Daniel

    I don't wanna pee here anymore

  35. Breaking The Chamber

    2:36 "nuts in my back"

    The Shobalt

  47. Taylor Thompson

    This is genuinely a masterpiece. I love the beginning and ending especially, that guitar just adds a certain tone to the song that makes it so much more awesome.

  48. Soothing90

    nothing less than a masterpiece.. for real.

  49. EvE AbYss

  68. eu dis er

    fucking advertising. It lies when it says you can skip in 5 seconds. If you press when it gets to 0, it does FUCK ALL. it takes another second till the click actually skips the ad. Fucking money.

  69. TheUnholySacrament

    The Summer Of 2010 I think, Banana 101.5 Over Played This Song

  75. ivanguliashki

  76. Deslie

    Pretty sure they aren't the lyrics, but good song though

  77. jrgull13

    has nothing to do with his ability to read. I had to read it 4x to finally understand what he said.

  78. dj chalker

    fuggaho not juggalo lol

  79. KnKDarkLotus

    lol im a juggalo im to lazy to read what they had said before hand but hey buddy FUCK OFF!! i listen to everything from Pantera the greatest band ever to Twiztid Boondox not so much icp anymore Tech N9ne White Zombie Mudvyane Pink Flyod. and saying we are stupid cuz of how people type over the internet just show how much you try to put on a show to look smart over the internet. such words as fuckin and gotta shows your grammer its the internet people dont gotta type shit right MMFCL

  80. chup210


  81. Luigi Thebaud

    humm , whats a juggalo?? im sorry english is not my first language.

  82. AscendFromBelow

    Everyone shut the fuck up about him being a juggalo a deal with it, listen to the music and quit judging other people for the groups they associate themselves with.

  83. TwiStedTentom

    God damn Juggalos are so fuckin illiterate and stupid. It actually upsets me to know that another human being can be so stupid... I'm gonna gain a peace of mind by just assuming he's mentally challenged...Gotta love Mudvayne though :D

  84. Xannarial

    gotta love how intense this song makes you feel.

  85. Adam Kramer

    I understood juggalo quite fine. It just requires a little more effort to read it. It's also clear that he's not native English, so quit giving him a hard time.

  86. omgwtf696969

    @Chargeglass thats cuz you cant read wickid lol @WickedCrimsonJuggalo fuk ya homie couldn't have said it better myself. MMFWCL
