My anxiety's clawing
Out from deep within me
It burns within as my throat begins to cauterize

This negativity's leeching
Any shred of composure
Rationale has decayed and left me bound in madness

I reach for calm
I starve for a balance unknown
This burden tortures me deep in my soul

I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
Nor will it take away the pain
I feel like this search is all in vain
And I struggle to find my way

How I yearn for the silence
For an end to the voices
The calamity grows and the deafness leads to disarray

Guilt buries me alive
In a coffin - criticized
I shouldered the blame and dug this hole for me to lay in

I reach for calm
I starve for a balance unknown
This burden tortures me deep in my soul

I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
Nor will it take away the pain
I feel like this search is all in vain
And I struggle to find my way

I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
Nor will it take away the pain
I feel like this search has been all in vain
And I struggle to find my way

Solo: Corey
Solo: Matt

I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
Nor will it take away the pain
I feel like this search is all in vain
And I struggle to find my way

I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
Nor will it take away the pain
I feel like this search has been all in vain
And I struggle to find my way

    I'm almost sure in the chorus Matt says "I found the strife won't make the bleeding stop" and possibly "nor will it take away the pain".

    Ok. This is the proper lyrics after listening to the live version.

    My anxiety's flying.
    Left from deep within me.
    It burns within as my throat begins to cauterize.
    This negativity leeching.
    And his shred of composure.
    Rationales decade & left me bound in madness.

    I preach for calm.
    I stumble replenish unknown.
    This burning tortures ring deep in my soul.

    I found the strife won't make the bleeding stop.
    Nor will it take away the pain.
    I feel like this search is all in vain.
    And I struggle to find my way.

    How I yearn for the silence.
    For an end to the voices.
    The calamity grows and the deafness begins to disarray.
    Killed buries me alive.
    In a coffin crypt (?) his size.
    I showed him the flame and darkness hole for me to lay it (?)

    I preach for calm.
    I stumble replenish unknown.
    This burning tortures ring deep in my soul.

    I found the strife won't make the bleeding stop.
    Nor will it take away the pain.
    I feel like this search is all in vain.
    And I struggle to find my way (X2).

    Light! Light! Light! Light!
    Light! Light! Light! Light!

    I found the strife won't make the bleeding stop.
    Nor will it take away the pain.
    I feel like this search is all in vain.
    And I struggle to find my way (X2).
