Carve me down and hollow me out
Take this world where I have been bound
If only you could see how I see
You'd understand who I am

When everyday's a fight with the mirror
I blame the face staring back at me
Look though these eyes and nothing gets clearer
The path I've made is not one I want to take

I thought I knew these hands
I thought that I could change
The world was in my palms, and I threw it away

Take me from everything I couldn't leave,
You know I'll be here waiting
(Be)cause I don't want to live this way,
If anything can save me

All these legacies were born from picture perfect prophecies
I couldn't carry
Save me from myself, how could you ever rest this all on me?
I'll only break you

Go inform the masses
They should never live by what I say
I've torn this life to pieces
Who would ever put their trust in me now?

I am a savage
I've created this hell
And I must burn in it
I've created this hell
And I will never escape it

Because I could never escape from...

All I've become
Is all I'll ever be
I'll leave this place
So I can burn in peace

I just want to be put back together
If the good die young,
Then I will live forever
I'd sell my soul to let this go

Take me from everything I couldn't leave,
You know I'll be here waiting
(Be)cause I don't want to live this way,
If anything can save me

Take me from everything I couldn't leave,
You know I'll be here waiting
(Be)cause I don't want to live this way,
If anything can save me
