Tongue tied, mouth sewn;

You knew the me that was unknown

Opened up and let you in

Never will be whole again



You took so much, what did I give;

In my aching heart you live

Steaming blood and scratching within

You’re the demon under my skin



Tear me open, shine my light;

The fire in me burning bright

Tear me down, reveal the lies

Cold air rush in, last ember die



In your eyes I’m ugly and weak

Hopeless- future looking bleak

Crush my bones, spit on me;

Gauge my eyes so I can’t see



You steered my wheel now I’m in control

Taking back the heart you stole

I’m smashing in my rearview mirror,

The road before me becoming clearer



I can mend my broken wings

Your voice is muted as my bell rings
