Caught In A Web

  • Silence disguised
    I watch you
    Show me the hurt
    That haunts you
    Would you despise the thrill
    If all you hide were mine?

    I can't hold on any longer
    These feelings keep growing stronger
    Echoes that deafen the mind
    will bury my voice in their wake

    Caught in a Web
    Removed from the world
    Hanging on by a thread
    Spinning the lies
    devised in my head

    I've seen the path
    the one you take
    shows the truth
    for you to make
    This turn of phrase
    we might not see
    is the thirst of desire
    found so easily

    Try to push me 'round
    the world some more
    And make me live in fear
    I bare all that I am
    made of now
    Attractive I don't care
    'Cause even when I danced with life
    no one was there to share

    Does this voice the wounds of your soul?
    Does this voice the wounds of your soul?

    Caught in a Web
    Removed from the world
    Hanging on by a thread
    Spinning the lies
    devised in my head

    Tried to live the life
    you live and saw
    It doesn't work for me
    I bare all that I am
    made of now
    Attractive, I can't be
    Inside the Dance of Life is one
    I'll never hold to me
    You can't heal the wounds of my soul.
    You can't heal the wounds of my soul.

    Caught in a Web
    Removed from the world
    Hanging on by a thread
    Spinning the lies
    devised in my head

    Caught in a Web
    Refused by the world
    Hanging on by a thread
    Spinning a cage
