  • I write to stay awake, light dies quicker in the winter time
    Wolves line the city streets, all that's left is a tired crime
    I'll sleep away the cold, I'll wrap myself up like a twisted wire
    Coiled like a rattlesnake, bites burn just like a bush fire
    I'm in shock, I'm in shock
    I'm in shock, I'm in shock
    I'm a switchblade renegade, my heart's buried in the junkyard
    Covered it in kerosene, burned it up in cold regard
    I'm a switchblade renegade, I'm not stand up, I've got lies down
    To the core, I'm a carnivore, I will never be earthbound
    Dark bites away the sun, leaves behind its shy twin
    Light's there for anyone, I have had my fill within
    My thoughts break like falling glass, shatter when I try to let them out
    Color cracks, I can't take it back, I wish I'd never opened my mouth
    I'm in shock, I'm in shock
    I'm in shock, I'm in shock

    I'm a switchblade renegade, my heart's buried in the junkyard
    Covered it in kerosene, burned it up in cold regard
    I'm a switchblade renegade, I'm not stand up, I've got lies down
    To the core, I'm a carnivore, I will never be earthbound
    I will never be earthbound
    I'm in shock, I'm in shock, I'm in shock, I'm in shock
    I'm in shock, I'm in shock, I'm in shock
    I'm a switchblade renegade, my heart's buried in the junkyard
    Covered it in kerosene, burned it up in cold regard
    I'm a switchblade renegade, I'm not stand up, I've got lies down
    To the core, I'm a carnivore, I will never be earthbound
    (I'm in shock) I will never be earthbound
    (I'm in shock) I will never be earthbound
    (I'm in shock) I will never be earthbound Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
