I woke up today
Can't say that I wanted to
I'd rather not face myself
And the mess that I've become
I'm so tired
Worn to the bone
I'm so sick of being alive
When I feel so dead inside
Inside…

Chorus:
Lies poison my heart
Spread through my veins
I'm paralyzed
Can’t make a sound
Can’t shed a tear
I've tried to bleed it out
I’ve tried
Tried to bleed it out
I’ve tried


I’m Falling apart
Won't try denying so
Help me Lord to my feet
Pick me up off of the floor
Please remind me
Who you are
And who I’m supposed to be
Won't you wake the dead in me?
In me…

Chorus:
Lies poison my heart
Spread through my veins
I'm paralyzed
Can’t make a sound
Can’t shed a tear
I've tried to bleed it out
I’ve tried
Tried to bleed it out
I’ve tried

Lies poison my heart
Spread through my veins
I'm paralyzed
Can’t make a sound
Can’t shed a tear
I've tried to bleed it out
I’ve tried

I need revival
You revive me

And finally the wounds have scarred
I won't forget where they came from
Won't be ashamed of their story
We’ve overcome
These battle scars they sing, 'We've won!'
'We've won.'
