Sortin' through the bones again Still feel it burnin' Everyone has different ways of coping It’s all part of the mechanism When you say that Makes me feel so bad Keep your mouth Closed enough so the words Don’t fall right out Think about the consequence Of mindless humiliation Say it’s a coincidence We fall apart in the end When you say that Makes me feel so sad Keep your mouth Closed enough so the words Don’t fall right out If I can’t fix you Might as well join This may be best left to imagination Let it run wild You can be so evil You can be so kind You can be so evil You can be so kind You can be so evil You can be so kind You can be so evil Without even trying You’re so fuckin' evil Without even trying Keep your mouth closed enough So the words don’t fall right Keep your mouth closed enough So the words don’t fall right out

What if I let you in? Would you understand? Or waste my time again? I can’t tell you anything Without being seen a child Follow me now Could it be you’re Sick and no one can see? Maybe I’m afraid to walk away What if I held my breath? Would you count to 10? You can tell me anything I won’t see you a child Follow you now Could it be you’re Sick and no one can see? Maybe I’m afraid to walk -- Could it be you’re sick and no one can see? Help me out from this silence Counted stars so I could be A part of mediocrity The silence in a sleepless night Is harder than you know to fight After we’re gone where do we go? Follow the waves Ebb and flow Insignificance you latched onto It swallows up all of you Seek outside you’ll find me Somewhere between past future meet Constant smiles become a scream now I don’t wanna talk about it anymore. Try Pity washes up upon a dry shore

The realization that you Are everything to me Is so frightening I can’t breathe I can’t be lost on you I can’t be lost on you Wear me down - Watch me break It’s critical - the condition You’ve fallen in once again It’s okay, don’t be afraid We’ll find a way you can sustain I can’t be lost on you It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. Wear me down - Watch me break Believable - the position You claim you’ll never be in again It’s okay, don’t be afraid We’ll find a way you can refrain I can’t be lost on you I can’t be lost on you Wear me down - Watch me break What you think about me Is none of my business I can’t be lost on you Not even my maker Has the right to shame I can’t be lost on you

They just need Something to believe in Someone to concede to Don’t care if it’s real Didn’t have much but you gave Parasites take what they may And they wouldn’t try for you Wouldn’t die for you Bottled years of regret and now nothing is left and they Wouldn’t die for you You took more than was offered Now you’ll pay I’m open to the possibility I might be wrong this time Didn’t have much, but you gave Parasites take what they may And they wouldn’t try for you Wouldn’t die for you Something I know that they wanted to do But they wouldn’t try for you You took more than was offered Now you’ll fade I’m open to the possibility I might be wrong this time I’m open to the possibility You might be wrong this time I can see that you’re hurting But you’re always wanting more On the surface you’re a grown man But you’re a child at the core Did you get enough of her yet? Guess it had to come to this No benefit to your existence A product of prolonged remiss Cyclecide Cyclecide Cyclecide Cyclecide

Crawl around on the ground Crookedly Guess you’ll stay here Stuck in infancy A helpful hand pulls you out Could make you see Guess you’ll bleed here Indefinitely I’ve done all I can You know where I stand Now I know Now I see Now I’m where I’m supposed to be Broken in, broken down, clarity Forgiveness won’t clear your history It’s all the same to me I can’t be what you need Take your hands away from me Give it all away Give it all away I don’t wanna fight I can be by myself I don’t need your time I... Give it all away Give it all away

What it took just to move a little closer I feel the grip loosen again And now it’s comin' back Fragments of youthful delusion And now I can't react It’s taken work once she didn’t wanna wake up She’s making waves somewhere She’s doing fine but it really did a number She was a child You liar You were no hero Denyyyyy Groomed up with no real place to go Oh no you’ve done it now The satisfaction that you feel Is just inconsideration It’s taken work once she didn’t wanna wake up She’s making waves somewhere She’s doing fine But it’s been a fucking rough one She was a child You liar You were no hero Deny Oh here it comes again You pick up your pride and walk on And here it comes again There is an end to this Statustory She was a child You liar You were no hero Deny Set me on fire And watched me burn Killed you to see me rise Fossilized Ostracized Newly ripe for the night Who am I? What it took just to move a little closer She’s makin’ waves

Oh here it comes again The only way to go Isn’t my choice at all Ya think ya know. "Take my advice, it’s the only one you need" Decipher weak from kind Don’t think you can Listen to what I say Not what you’re hearin’ Take what you need, it no longer serves me Succumb or not to come Fail either way Resist forever or you’ll stay the same Something’s broken in a triggered mind A little pain you wanna run and hide Am I insane? - Are you the same? How does it feel to know I’m alive? You’re not How does it feel to know I survived How does it feel How does it feel to know I’m alive? You’re not You’re not Something’s broken in a triggered mind A little pain you wanna run and hide Am I insane? - Are you the same? I’m not sane Something’s broken in a triggered mind A little pain you wanna run and hide Am I insane? - Are you the same?

Hatred passes time in confused minds Stirring up the truth until you’re blind Complacent you sit and wait Hoping that it all will fade Oh why does it have to be this way? Silence - Why do you speak your mind Smile - When nothings fine Follow - Me into dark divides Swallow - All of your pride I am not alone I am not the only one This is not my home Far from mine I’ve had to Far from mine I’ve had to run Silence - Why do you speak your mind Smile - When nothings fine Follow - Me into dark divides Swallow - All of your pride It’s not your fault you don’t know how to behave You’ll get a pass cuz “it’s just the way you are” It’s in the way It’s in the way It’s in the way that you’re acting like you give a damn About us About them About anybody, but yourself It’s ok It’s ok We’ll find a way to dig ourselves out of this hole That we’re in Cuz of you And your ignorant followers You can be sure We have been here before We will be heard We will be heard
