Don't give a shit about it
Curl up I start to doubt this
Something has died in me today
Smell the decay

I need some air around me
Claw walls until undernails bleed
Don't steal my coffin shut today

Coffin nails
So hard to pull
I cannot break free

From the ties that hold you down
From the grips of loneliness
There's something missing in my life
That I'm running after
Never meant to be held down
All I need is home right now
Cause there's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

Self-doubt breaks down my resolve
It cripples part of my soul
And masterfully I'll hide my pain
Smell the decay

Dead eyes and a hollow smile
Pitch black my vision is gone
And masterfully I'll hide my pain

Coffin nails
So hard to pull
I cannot break free

From the ties that hold you down
From the grips of loneliness
There's something missing in my life
That I'm running after
Never meant to be held down
All I need is home right now
Cause there's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

These coffin nails
Are keeping me
From the only thing I know
This monster's holding me
How will I break free

From the ties that hold you down
From the grips of loneliness
There's something missing in my life
That I'm running after
Never meant to be held down
All I need is home right now
Cause there's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

    im not sure if this is specific, but i think this song is about the emptiness of depression. not the searing harsh pain you get, but the loneliness of the half healed depression... its almost as bad.
