Not long ago
I was inside
your downward spiral
dying slow
distracted life
keep it all down
deserted, not another soul around

fair weathered friends
covenienece wins
Keep it, keep all of your madness
drown in all your sadness
Choke on all your pain
cause I don't want to

You had me pinned
under your thumb
my mind divided
for protection
illusion with
mirrors and screens
black and white
dragging through the in between

Farewell my friends
survival wins

Keep it, Keep all of your madness
drown in all your sadness
Choke on all your pain
cause I don't want to
Keep it, keep all of your sorrow
suffer through tomorrow
choke on all your shame

Keep it, keep all of your darkness
don't forget to mark this
bitter holiday
You asked 1000 times
please write a song that's mine
well this is what I have to say to you
You drank yourself half blind
I lived inside your lie
but I'm not meant to die that way
