" Never make a person a priority, when to them you are just a option"


(Slow)
When did I lose my heart,
When did I become so scared?
Why is it hard for me to start,
Why are my feelings so layered?
How did I become this numb,
How did this get past me?
I wake up always feeling dumb,
I go to bed unable to see.

(Hook)
I gave my life up, gave it all to sin.
Now I'm left completely empty within.
The thoughts in my head, the words I say,
Feel like they are not my own.

(Slow)
Where's my will to live,
Where's my life to give?
Why am I captive to my own mind,
Why am I no longer kind?
How did I lose myself,
How do I stop cutting myself?
When will I stop feeling dead,
When can I go to bed?

(Hook)
I gave my life up, gave it all to sin.
Now I'm left completely empty within.
The thoughts in my head, the words I say,
Feel like they are not my own.

(Rap)
Everyday I feel dead inside, wondering when I'll stop breathin,
I'm a prisoner to myself, I don't know how I'm still liven.
I did this all to myself, I locked the coffin,
I want to feel again I want to live, but now I'm locked in.
I let my pain take over me,
Now I can't even see,
I don't know how I'm supposed to be,
Maybe one day I will be able to see.

(Hook)
I gave my life up, gave it all to sin.
Now I'm left completely empty within.
The thoughts in my head, the words I say,
Feel like they are not my own.

(Rap)
Now it's time to change my life, but I want to use my story.
If I can help someone else through life, it's all worth the pain.
That's why I'm sharing, don't ever say it's for glory.
If I can be the reason you live, that's my gain.
That's why for you I'll do anything,
Give you everything.
By helping you I help US,
I'll be here for you dawn to dusk.

(Hook)
I gave my life up, gave it all to sin.
Now I'm left completely empty within.
The thoughts in my head, the words I say,
Feel like they are not my own.

This song just talks about my life and the way that, more days than not, I just feel empty and numb to the world around me.
