You are a cancer spreading it's wings
So selfishly unaware to the things
Your existence is doing to my well being
I feel my heart leaking

You start as a fissure, a crack in the skin
You become as an ulcer permeating
If I had known all that you'd do
Would it hasten what I'd do to you

I don't want to hate you, but how could I not
You killed off so much, I held dear in my heart

Take away every single pain
That infects each and every day
I will bury you once and for all
You're a monster, you're built to fall
You're built to fall

It's getting harder and harder to breathe
Choking on the same air as a walking disease
You are the thing that's killing me
From the inside out, let me be

I don't want to hate you
But you killed off everything in my heart

Take away every single pain
That infects each and every day
I will bury you once and for all
You're a monster, you're built to fall

You've got your war against my head
Push that button, make it end
You've got your war against my head
You've got your war against my head
Push that button, make it end
You've got your war against my head
Push that button, make it end

Take away every single pain
That infects each and every day
I will bury you once and for all
You're a monster, you're built to fall

You're built to fall, you're built to fall, you're built to fall
You're built to fall, you're built to fall, you're built to fall

    Am i the only one who thinks that when he says "built to fall" sounds like beautiful? Therefore complementing and insulting. To me it's seems like it was a realationship that just wouldn't work.

    It's about vanquishing you're ego. At birth you're given an ego just like everyone else and it's normal, but as you grow so does your ego and slowly and eventually it kills you from the inside out. So in retrospect we build our ego just to break it down in order to be a complete person.

    Even if you love someone with all your heart, that someone could hurt you without knowing until that love becomes into a sickness!!!
