lyrics

(Dead inside)

I'm fucked up in the head, I'm drowning in my thoughts.

Everything I've ever loved is all for naught.

All the whispers of the voices echoing in my sleep,

Waking up to find that they will never leave.

It's funny how the words from people I believed,

Are the things that are dead to me and giving me grief.

Maladjusted false intentions and empty promises,

I'm chocking on the lies I love with every breath.

I'm fucking dead inside.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

My voice of reason is choking up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

So much anxiety that keeps me up at night,

I don't know what is left or what is right.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

What kind of fucked up darkness would lead me on like this,

To believe in a world of toxic, tainted bliss?

I can't trust anyone more than I trust myself

To set me from my never-ending hell.

Everywhere I go I'm haunted by the voices of the dead,

The scream inside my ears until I'm seeing red.

They ruin everything, I would do anything,

Why does it have to be this way? Why can't they all just go away?

I can run, but I can't hide.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

My voice of reason is choking up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.

So much anxiety that keeps me up at night,

I don't know what is left or what is right.

My voice of reason is broken up inside,

I don't know what it's like to feel alive.
