Favorite Quote:
Even if you are at the bottom, there is nowhere to go but up.


[Chorus]





I can't see straight





I can't think straight





All the lies I've told myself






Have fallen away





This world is cold





This world is cruel






All my illusions






Have melted away





The most viscous shadows




Often exist in your head.


You yourself drink the most potent poisons



Most who crack, crack themselves



Some who die, kill themselves.








[Chorus]




Your new home has rubber walls





Mine are made of lead




Broken glass across the halls






Fire in our heads









[chorus]




That ship has sailed, the die is cast





Our luck is running thin.



The bodies stack, the blood runs thick





The walls are closing in!
