  • I hold my breath as this life starts to take its toll
    I hide behind a smile as this perfect plan unfolds
    But oh, God, I feel I've been lied to
    Lost all faith in the things I have achieved
    And I

    I've woken now to find myself
    In the shadows of all I have created
    I'm longing to be lost in you
    (away from this place I have made)
    Won't you take me away from me

    Crawling through this world as disease flows through my veins
    I look into myself, but my own heart has been changed
    I can't go on like this
    I loathe all I've become

    I've woken now to find myself
    In the shadows of all I have created
    I'm longing to be lost in you
    (away from this place I have made)
    Won't you take me away from me

    Lost in a dying world I reach for something more
    I have grown so weary of this lie I live

    I've woken now to find myself
    In the shadows of all I have created
    I'm longing to be lost in you
    (away from this place I have made)
    Won't you take me away from me Writer/s: AMY LEE, BEN MOODY, DAVID HODGES
