My father tried to save me
He said believe in the spirit of God
Leave me alone
My mother tried to heal me
She said just feel me, just feel me
Leave me alone
My brother tried to scold me
He tried to hold me to mold me
Leave me alone
My sister tried to listen,
But she couldn't understand it's not how I stand,
But where I stand

And you talk, and you talk, and you talk
And then you walk(?)
And you give what you wanted all along
And then you walk
And then you are(?) coral in the water
How come you can't be with me?
Oil in the fire, I remember how it used to be
Swan in the water, you're moving so elegantly
And it burns, and it burns, and it burns
And it burns, and it burns

Now World War Three tried to convince me
They were shouting on the radio and TV screen
Leave me alone
My angels tried to mess me, constantly test me and test me
Leave me alone
The devil tried to bless me, confessions of death
Leave me alone
My sister tried to listen,
But she couldn't understand it's not how I stand,
But where I stand

And you talk, and you talk, and you talk
And then you walk
And you give what you wanted all along
And then you walk
And then you are coral in the water
How come you can't be with me?
Oil in the fire, I remember how it used to be
Swan in the water, you're moving so elegantly
And it burns, and it burns, and it burns
And it burns, and it burns

This world is tryna break me, it's tryna break me (x6)
