  • You track the doubts of my soul
    Until you found it
    The darkened room locked away
    I let you in

    You looked inside then you turned away
    My makeshift savior
    He left me right here in my chains
    But still I whisper
    Still I call you

    I never wanted you to see
    The darkest part of me
    I knew you'd run away
    I waited, but you never came

    So afraid to be alone
    I tried to let you go
    And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me

    It's my decent to know your pain
    It's watching all I believed fade away

    Half traitors and fools
    Half beggars and thieves
    Which mask will you choose
    What is underneath

    I never wanted you to see
    The darkest part of me
    I knew you'd run away
    I waited but you never came

    So afraid to be alone
    I tried to let you go
    And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me

    And out of the black state of your perfect life
    And out of the darkness that you need to hide
    It covers you, it spills over you

    I never wanted you to see
    The darkest part of me
    I knew you'd run away
    I waited, but you never came

    So afraid to be alone
    I tried to let you go
    And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me Writer/s: ANTHONY ARMSTRONG, JOSH BAKER, MARK L. HOLMAN, MICHAEL BRANDON BARNES, RANDY ARMSTRONG, ROB GRAVES
