Asking Alexandria – The Black lyrics

[Verse 1]
Bury me, just leave me to sleep in the dirt.
Finish me, I'm floating away!
There's a demon staring straight through your eyes,
Am I wasting my time? Something's dying inside of me.

[Pre-Chorus]
You make me feel like I'm fucking drowning,
I need to cut you out! I need to cut you out!
You made my world come crashing down around me,
I need to cut you out!

[Chorus]
Oh God I wish you'd just speak to me,
Black is all that I see!
Speak to me,
You used to be all that I needed!

[Verse 2]
I've been crucified and hung out to dry,
Yet my heart still beats and I feel so alive!
This time I'll fight for myself as you try to fuck me over,
I bet you never cared, I knew you never cared!

[Pre-Chorus]
You make me feel like I'm fucking drowning,
I need to cut you out! I need to cut you out!
You made my world come crashing down around me,
I need to cut you out!

[Chorus]
Speak to me,
Black is all that I see!
Speak to me,
You used to be all that I needed!

[Bridge]
I need to cut you out, I need to cut you out,
I need to cut you out, I need to cut you out.

[Outro]
I wish you could save me, there's something lost inside,
I'm scared it might kill me.
All my life I've needed you with me,
You've always let me down, but still I try.
Don't leave me here, I need you around,
Don't turn your back on me! Don't turn your back on me!
Lift my feet off the ground, I can't cut you out!
Your tongue like a knife, your eyes cut like daggers,
I don't feel a thing ’cause I'm so dead inside!
Lift my feet off the ground,
Don't leave me here, I need you around.
