Hospital for Souls

Album: Sempiternal (2013)
  • And then I found out how hard it is to really change
    Even hell can get comfy once you've settled in
    I just wanted the numb inside me to leave
    No matter how fucked you get
    The sun will return and you come back down!
    The funny thing is all I ever wanted I already had
    There's glimpses of heaven in every day
    In the friends that I have, the music I made
    The love that I feel, I just had to start again

    The days are a death wish
    A witch hunt for an exit
    I am powerless

    The fragile, the broken
    Sit in circles and stay unspoken
    We are powerless

    Because we all walk alone on an empty staircase
    Idle in the halls and nameless faces
    I am powerless

    Everybody wants to go to heaven
    But nobody wants to die
    I can fear death no longer
    I've died a thousand times

    A wasteful universe
    And we don't know our soul was
    Emptiness inside our heads
    But no one dares to dwell

    Throw me to the flames
    Watch me burn
    Set my world ablaze
    Watch me burn

    How are we on a scale of one to ten?
    You can tell me, what do you say?
    Do you wanna talk about it?
    How does that make you feel?

    Have you ever took a blade to your wrists
    Have you've been skipping meals
    We're gonna try something new today
    How does that make you feel?

    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    In this hospital for souls

    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    In this hospital for souls

    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me
    In this hospital for souls

    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me burn
    Hold me close, tell me go, watch me burn
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me burn
    In this hospital for souls

    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me burn
    Hold me close, tell me go, watch me burn
    Hold me close, don't let go, watch me burn
