    "Would you speak them to me?"

    Hi
    Can anyone tell me what it means ?
    It's part of a song named "sins of the father"
    here's the lyrics :
    Pride feeds their blackened hearts.
    And the thirst must be quenched to fuel hypocrisy
    Cleansing flames is the only way to repent.
    Renounce what made you
    Words that kill
    Would you speak them to me?
    With your breath so still,
    It makes me believe
    The Sins never die.
    Can't wash this blood off our hands.
    Let the world fear us all.
    It's just means to an end.
    Our salvation lies in the Father's sins.
    Beyond the truth,
    Let me suffer now.
    In my heart I just know that there's no way to light up the dark in his eyes.
    I would appreciate it if you could help me with the parts I made them bold. I don't understand what they really mean.
    fearing means to an end ?!

    Thanks in advance

    In the middle one, the writer/speaker is asking if the reader/listener would speak "words that kill" to the writer/speaker.

    In the third one, "means to an end" is a way to accomplish something.

    I have no idea what the first one means in that context.

    Remember that song lyrics are not generally a good way to learn/study English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
