Alive

Album: Hate Me (2015)

  • Locked up from hell so tight
    This place is dark and dirty
    I've been here too many times
    My blood in purgatory
    Cry out but no one answers
    Silence consumes my mind
    Another morning after
    A truth I can't deny

    When the stars are falling
    And worlds collide
    You feel like you won't survive
    I'm bruised and broken
    But I'm hanging on
    As long as I am
    Alive

    You say I'm so diluted
    You say that I am blind
    You say that I will never seek the will I find
    I say you'll never know me
    You are no friend of mine
    And I'm going to fuck you up and set your world on fire

    When the stars are falling
    And worlds collide
    You feel like you won't survive
    I'm bruised and broken
    But I'm hanging on
    As long as I am
