Despise!

Maze... psychopathic daze... I create this waste
Back away from tangents, on the verge of drastic
Ways... can't escape this place... I deny your face
Sweat gets in my eyes, lash out at all I despise

HANDS ON MY FACE OVER BEARING I CAN'T GET OUT

Lost... ran at my own cost... hearing laughter, scoffed
Searching from the rush, detached from such and such
Bleak... standing on my feet... listening incomplete
I am not a dog, but I'm the one you dog

HANDS ON MY FACE OVER BEARING I CAN'T GET OUT

Never - ever - surrender - I WON'T ALLOW IT! [x3]
Never - ever - surrender - DESPISE
My state of mind gets so one-sided [x4]
Despise! [x4]

Cut me - show me - enter - I am
Willing and able and never any danger to myself
Knowledge in my pain, knowledge in my pain
Or was my tolerance a phase?
Empathy, out of my way
I can't die [x4]

Never - ever - surrender - I WON'T ALLOW IT! [x3]
Never - ever - surrender - DESPISE
My state of mind gets so one-sided [x8]

Despise! [x4]

Truth hurts when it's in your face
Are you afraid of it?
