Strife

Album: Vengeance Falls (2013)

  • My anxiety's clawing
    Out from deep within me
    It burns within as my throat begins to cauterize

    This negativity's leeching
    Any shred of composure
    Rationale has decayed and left me bound in madness

    I reach for calm
    I starve for a balance unknown
    This burden tortures me deep in my soul

    I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
    Nor will it take away the pain
    I feel like this search is all in vain
    And I struggle to find my way

    How I yearn for the silence
    For an end to the voices
    The calamity grows and the deafness leads to disarray

    Guilt buries me alive
    In a coffin criticized
    I shouldered the blame and dug this hole for me to lay in

    I reach for calm
    I starve for a balance unknown
    This burden tortures me deep in my soul

    I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
    Nor will it take away the pain
    I feel like this search is all in vain
    And I struggle to find my way

    I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
    Nor will it take away the pain
    I feel like this search has been all in vain
    And I struggle to find my way

    I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
    Nor will it take away the pain
    I feel like this search is all in vain
    And I struggle to find my way

    I've found that strife won't make the bleeding stop
    Nor will it take away the pain
    I feel like this search has been all in vain
    And I struggle to find my way Writer/s: COREY BEAULIEU, DAVID DRAIMAN, MATTHEW HEAFY, PAOLO GREGOLETTO
