Chelsea Wolfe – They'll Clap When You're Gone lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can feel the walls closing in
And I don’t want to talk anymore
Wish I could quietly slip away
And leave you here with no void

The only reason I stay is to care for you
Everything else in me has atrophied
And I am cold and painless now
I want to live but I feel nothing

[Pre-Chorus]
When can I die? When can I go?
When will I be free? When will I know?
When can I run? My legs are bound
When can I go? When can I go?

[Verse 2]
Was born a blackened seed in the wild
And I never was a child
I was pulled right out of the sea
And the salt, it never left my body

Someone opened me up while I was sleeping
And filled my body right up with sand
I carry a heaviness like a mountain
It forces me to remain

Alive and ugly
Alive and ugly
Alive and ugly
Alive and ugly

[Pre-Chorus]
When can I die? When can I go?
When will I be free? When will I know?
When can I run? My legs are bound
Can I leave here, knowing you’ll be strong without me?

[Chorus]
They'll clap when you die
They'll love you when you’re dead
And they'll understand
And you'll be forgiven then
