I'm tired and feeling hateful
I'm tired and I can't breathe
So tired that I would be grateful
If you closed the door when you leave

That's me diggin' my heels in
That's me with the holy ghost
'Scuse me but I don't remember
Where were you when I needed you most?

And I'm tired of the sky
As you claw at my eyes
As I wait for the flood
I swim in blood
As I crawl to my knees
And I beg your disease
Taste the ice on your breath
As you catch your breath

I close my eyes, embrace the wave
Deliver me

Hey you, voice of reason
Hey you, are you listening to me?
It's you that I don't believe in
I don't buy what I don't see
Say goodbye 'cos I don't need

And I'm tired of the sky
As you claw at my eyes
As I wait for the flood
I swim in blood
As I crawl to my knees
And I beg your disease
Taste the ice on your breath
As you catch your breath

And I'm tired of the sky
As you claw at my eyes
As I wait for the flood
I swim in blood
As I crawl to my knees
And I beg your disease
Taste the ice on your breath
As you catch your breath

I close my eyes, embrace the wave
Abandon me
Save the day that I won't see
Deliver me
