lyrics

THIS IS JUST PARALYSIS
TWISTING ITS WAY INTO MY VEINS.
EVERYTHING IS ROTTING HERE.
NOTHING TO LOVE OR TO GAIN.
ATROPHY WILL TAKE THE FLESH,
AND BURY ME FROZEN IN THIS ABYSS.
MY FISTS ARE POUNDING AT THE ICE
AS I WATCH THEM WALK AWAY.
WHY ARE THEY LEAVING ME?
CRUSHING ME? KILLING ME?
WHAT HAVE I DONE TO THEM
TO DESERVE THIS ENDING?
I CAN’T BELIEVE THE THINGS BELIEVED
BY THE ONES WHO OWN ALL TIME.
THE TICKING TOCK IS A SLAVE’S PULSE
UNLESS YOU SPEAK FROM HEART AND MIND.
IF YOU TALK AMIDST THIS GROUP
ABOUT THE TRUTHS THAT YOU HOLD DEAR
IRONY EMBRACES YOU
AS YOUR FELLOW PRISONERS DISMANTLE YOU.
I CAN HEAR THEM LAUGHING.
STUDYING. SNICKERING.
I CAN FEEL THEM WATCHING
WITH EYES OF APATHY.
THE TRUTH IS...
THE TRUTH IS...
IT'S NOT THEM IT'S US.
ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
I AM NOT THE ONE
WHO WILL JUST SIT HERE BLEEDING AS I IDLY WHISPER
INTO THE EARS OF THE STUBBORN, THE IGNORANT,
THE ONES WHO HAVE TURN DEAF TO REASON.
JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP, AND TRY,
TRY TO SEE THE WORLD
FOR THE NIGHTMARES YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO WITNESS.
JUST LET THIS CANCER SURVIVE. LET IT GROW
TILL THE BOMBS DROP,
AND TURN THESE LIMBS, BLOOD AND BONES, INTO SALT.
TRY TO SWIM THROUGH THIS DECAY.
BODIES LAY BURNT. ONLY SALT REMAINS.
I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE.
DOES NOT ANY HAVE A VOICE?
LOCKED INSIDE DUALISTIC PATHS
THINKING THAT THERE'S NOT A THIRD CHOICE.
BREAK AWAY YOU LITTLE SHEEP
GO ON RUNNING FROM THE PACK.
THE WOLVES ARE HERDING THE REST OF US AGAIN
OVER THE FUCKING CLIFF.
WHY ARE THEY KILLING ME?
EATING ME? HEAR THEM SCREAM.
WONDERING FINALLY
WHO THEY WERE FOLLOWING.
I AM NOT THE ONE
WHO WILL JUST SIT HERE BLEEDING AS I IDLY WHISPER
INTO THE EARS OF THE STUBBORN, THE IGNORANT,
THE ONES WHO HAVE TURN DEAF TO REASON.
JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP, AND TRY,
TRY TO SEE THE WORLD
FOR THE NIGHTMARES YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO WITNESS.
JUST LET THIS CANCER SURVIVE. LET IT GROW
TILL THE BOMBS DROP,
AND TURN THESE LIMBS, BLOOD AND BONES, INTO SALT.
I COULD HAVE NEVER IMAGINED
TO FIND BEAUTY IN THIS FUCKING MESS,
BUT AGAIN I TRIED. I TRIED. I TRIED. I TRIED TO
SURVIVE.
