The Wretchedness Inside

Album: The Sin and the Sentence (2017)
  • Submerged in dirt but it was never enough
    To quell the fire in the back of my lungs
    My bones are aching and my head is a mess
    They said to run but I'm obsessed with the madness

    This blood I bleed, I bleed for you
    I paint the walls with my misery
    This blood I bleed, I bleed for me
    I can't live if I can't breathe

    The part I can't control
    I can't destroy
    The wretchedness inside
    The wretchedness inside of you
    The wretchedness inside of me

    Consigned to hurt but it was never enough
    To bury feelings that will surely return
    My heart is aching, and my god, I'm a mess
    I'll never run 'cause I'm obsessed with the madness

    This blood I bleed, I bleed for you
    I paint the walls with my misery
    This blood I bleed, I bleed for me
    I cannot live if I can't breathe

    The part I can't control
    I can't destroy
    The wretchedness inside
    The wretchedness inside of you (Inside)
    The wretchedness inside of me

    I cannot control
    I cannot destroy
    In hell can I confide?

    The wretchedness inside of you
    (In hell can I confide?)
    The wretchedness inside of me

    How did it come to this?
    How the fuck did it come to this?
    Our love and hate collide in all this dissonance(x2)

    Fuck you

    How did it come to this?
    How the fuck did it come to this?
    Our love and hate collide in all this dissonance(x2)

    This blood I bleed, I bleed for you
    I paint the walls with my misery
    This blood I bleed, I bleed for me
    I cannot live if I can't breathe

    The part I can't control
    I can't destroy
    The wretchedness inside
    The wretchedness inside of you
    The wretchedness inside of me

    I cannot control
    I cannot destroy
    In hell can I confide?

    The wretchedness inside of you
    In hell can I confide?
    The wretchedness inside of me
