  • A slap in the face
    It is endowed
    The light of my life
    Is put out somehow

    I'm lying in pieces of
    Emotions you control
    You're feeding my sympathy
    The lie unfolds

    Feeling this hostility, I pray
    Begging, make this evil go away
    Conveying the things I only fear
    Building my sanctuary of blood and tears

    The lines that I traced
    Around the scars they swell
    In plain with the sedative
    To numb this spell

    I'm lying in pieces of
    Emotions, you control
    You're feeding this cancer
    It's taken hold

    Feeling this hostility, I pray
    Begging, make this evil go away
    Conveying the things I only fear
    Building my sanctuary of blood and tears

    Feeling, animosity
    When no one else is around
    Blindly, I scream into the air
    Eating my heart off the ground

    Feeling this hostility, I pray
    Begging, make this evil go away
    Conveying the things I only fear
    Building my sanctuary of blood and tears Writer/s: James Christian Shaffer, Jonathan Howsman Davis, Raymond Lee Luzier, Reginald Arvizu, Sean Casavant
