lyrics

Every day, I struggle just to lift my head,
To face this life, suppress this hatred.
Peace has become a distant blur,
Fear fills me up inside over and over.
My insecurities, they get the best of me,
So deep inside my head, I can't believe I'll be set free,
My insecurities, they get the best of me,
Constantly surrounded by a beauty that I'll never see.

I am nothing more than a maggot in a fucking swarm.
One and the same, un-unique, filthy and fucking weak.
Writhing in rot and decay, feeding on death day after day,
Mummify my body alive, I'm no longer willing to live this lie.

All that I want is to curl up and hide,
Shelter myself from the outside.
Wrap up my body inside a cocoon,
My wings will grow out one day soon.

I will shed my skin,
I will breathe again.

I crawl beneath those who soar above me,
Wishing for wings so I can set myself free.
I am bound by fear disguised as comfort,
Help me find the strength to end this misery.

I know I'm nothing compared to you,
I idolize everything that you do,
But giving up is no excuse,
Because If I'm nothing I've got nothing to lose.

I will not be torn apart when I re-emerge from the dark.
