  • I will break into your thoughts
    With what's written on my heart
    I will break, break

    I'm so sick, infected with
    Where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss, selfishness
    I'm so sick
    I'm so sick

    If you want more of this
    We can push out, sell out, die out
    So you'll shut up (shut up)
    And stay sleeping
    With my screaming in your itching ears

    I'm so sick, infected with
    Where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss, selfishness
    I'm so sick
    I'm so sick

    Hear it, I'm screaming it
    You're heeding to it now
    Hear it, I'm screaming it
    You tremble at this sound

    You sink into my clothes
    This invasion makes me feel
    Worthless, hopeless, sick

    I'm so sick, infected with
    Where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss, selfishness
    I'm so, I'm so sick

    I'm so sick, infected with
    Where I live
    Let me live without this
    Empty bliss, selfishness
    I'm so (I'm so)
    I'm so sick (I'm so sick)
    I'm so (I'm so)
    I'm so sick (I'm so sick) Writer/s: Howard Benson, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Lacey Nicole Mosley, Pat Seals, Sameer Bhattacharya

  • Judah from New Mexicosomeone needs to show proof of it being about conversion therapy and her being gay. send your sources
  • Tr from FloridaThis song is about how she was gay and went to conversion therapy. Her description is claiming that gay people are "sick and messed up" and can choose to go through conversion therapy to "break the cycle". That the people who run those therapies have a "firm stance in what they know" and can "empower empty followers" (the gay individuals) and create people who convince others that conversion therapy is okay. This is disgusting. She's good at manipulating her words to make it look like something else but when you really take a look you can see exactly what she means.
  • Marie from IndianaI think it is like about she is sick of everyone being so selfish all the time. Totally love this song and band!
  • Court from Nctoo bad it’s all alternative Christian.
  • Spiderskull98 from New YorkThis reminds me of Mudvayne's Nothing To Gein.
  • Ash from Plano, TxI <3 THIS SONG!! Its deep and I totally get it
  • Caitlyn from Royersford, PaThis song gets me amped everytime i hear it
  • Jd from Paoli, InThis song is on live free or die hard and i heard it for the first time on there. Its an okay song rock on lacey mosley
  • Clara from Brisbane, Australiai love this song because it has such a great meaning and is great to sing when you're angry or just so mad at the world.
  • Trogbob from San Diego, CaWow. Great song.
  • Autumn from Thomasville, GaI love this song. Not only does it have a great sound, the lyrics are true. We can really be influence by the world we live in and what the people do or say, we have to realize that so we can break out of that mold and be ourselves and voice our own opinion and say we want and be ourselves. if I had more hands I'd give it more than 2 thummbs up.
  • Jordan from Okc, OkThis is my second favorite song ever!!!!!!!!!!
  • Alyssa from Forney, TxAwesome song! Her voice is amazing
  • Jay from Jackson, Msthis song is on rock band, i love it!
  • Kristen from Saucier, MsThis song is so great, and its true. Sometimes we listen to things and are influenced by things and those things make us not have our own voice. And sometimes we actually do have to realize what's messed up so we can speak for ourselves.
  • Shannon from Bakersfield , CaYa know what?Lacy makes perfect sense.
    We all really do have some of the wrong influences.And that does makes us not have voices of our own.Then again some of our influences do have strong messages that make our voices stronger and have more pride in what we treid to say in the first place.
