The Death of Me

Album: From Death to Destiny (2013)
  • Am I insane?
    I ask myself over and over and over again
    Trapped in my brain
    Pull it out from the cracks in my skull
    Am I alone?
    Surrounded by shadows
    I think I might just be suffocating

    The devil came to take me to hell
    But I'm already there

    Am I insane?
    Am I insane?
    Am I insane?

    The devil came to take me to hell
    But I'm already there.

    I won't let you be the death of me
    No I refuse to let you bring me down
    Bring me down
    I won't let you make me out to be
    The one who's in the wrong
    And I've lost my mind before
    But now I'm back
    And I'm better than ever

    Am I insane?
    I've rolled myself over
    And screamed till I spit up blood
    Trapped in my brain
    The answer has taken my hands to pull my eyeballs out

    Am I alone?
    The voices who fight in my brain just won't fucking go away

    The devil came to take me to hell
    But I'm already there

    Am I insane?
    Am I insane?
    Am I insane?

    Am I alone surrounded by death?
    I think this might just be the end

    Am I insane?
    Am I insane?
    Am I insane?

    The devil came to take me to hell
    But I'm already there.

    You can't take this away from me
    You can't release these demons
    You can't make this OK for me
    You're the one who caused these feelings

    I apologize for what I'm about to do
    I try to sympathize
    But at the end of the day
    You brought this on yourself

    I won't let you be the death of me
    No I refuse to let you bring me down
    Bring me down
    I won't let you make me out to be
    The one who's in the wrong
    And I've lost my mind before
    But now I'm back
    And I'm better than ever
    Now I'm back
    And I'm better than ever

    The tears
    Have left a blur
    That I can't explain
    The pain
    Has left a hole
    In which my heart should've been

    I'm blind with rage
    And I can't shake this feeling
    Irrational, impetuous
    And intemperate

    I'm blind with rage
    And I can't shake this feeling
    Irrational, impetuous
    And intemperate

    I won't let you be the death of me
    I refuse to let you bring me down
    Bring me down
    I won't let you make me out to be
    The one who's in the wrong
    And I lost my mind before
    But I'm back and I'm better than ever Writer/s: Benjamin Bruce, Danny Worsnop, James Cassells
