Starving
searching, this barren wasteland Trying.
to grasp being this alone Pleading.
for a breath of fresh air Someone's,
standing on my chest Dying
I'm; asphyxiating myself I.

kill myself Break...

myself slave, to my weakness Choke
on my words Oh.
I'm dying and I feel so alone Break.
myself slave, to my weakness Choke
on my words The.
lights are on and I wish I was home Break.
myself slave, to my weakness Choke
on my words Oh.
I'm dying I feel so alone Break.
myself slave, to my weakness Choke
on my words The.
lights are on and I wish I was home My.

lips are screaming pretty nothings My.
ears are bleeding for want of words Fuck,
words I. need actions Hope.
has left me fucking shattered Someone's.
standing on my chest Alone.
would be a pleasant change from here Go.

How

do you gauge loneliness How?
do you gauge loneliness How?
do you gauge loneliness Have?

you ever felt so alone I?

know It

feels like the light will never reach me here I'm.
choking back my longing for she'd tears So.
strangulated by my lonesome fears Please.
don't worry too much It,
only hurts when I breathe This.
only hurts every time I breathe

    To me this song is about being hurt by someone you love... And having them crush your spirit with lies... And there is nothin you could have done because their soul is evil and dark, and so is yours now
