Subrosa – The Hours I Keep lyrics

Oh mother Oh father
You gave me life
You gave me death

Oh mother Oh father
You loved me well
You can't help me now

There is no escape.

Dark water is all around
On the broken bridge
Revere is bound

A dead-end maze
Dark passageways
Synapse collapse
Reality break

There is no escape.

It's morning
Twelve hours of sleep
You won't believe the hours I keep

A veil is placed before my eyes
I can't see myself
I can't see their lies

There is no escape

I'm buried in this bag of skin
With sham circuitry
Where do I begin?

Oh mother Oh father
You gave me life
You gave me death

There is no escape.
