  • The skin on my bones is leather cold
    Poisoned my heart beats slow
    Fear of crashing and not coming back
    I'm a curse to my friends, to be condemned
    Mistakes I made and won't mend
    Fear of crashing and not coming back

    I dream of death, its violent breath
    I'm caught with my maker in step
    Fear of crashing and not coming back
    I could bleach clean my soul but he knows I know I'm coming to dine in his hole
    Fear of crashing and not coming back

    Visions of a life
    Where I was satisfied
    Feed my hungry mind
    Where are you when I close my eyes?

    I left this world behind
    For the world I'd built inside
    Feed my hungry mind
    Where are you when I close my eyes?

    Why do I feel so strange?
    A nuclear family and friends my own age
    I follow the rules, do what it says on the tin
    But I'm still on the outside still looking in

    Why was I born with itchy feet?
    And why do I hate all the people I meet?
    People's ideals give me the chills to the bone
    I got one thousandmillion friends and I feel so alone

    Stay as you are
    Everybody likes you
    Everybody cares
    There's some insight for you
    I'll get my coat
    I'll be the bitch
    I heard that journeys end in lovers meeting
    But my journey ends when my heart stops beating
    I'm leaving

    Stay as you are
    Everybody loves you
    Everybody cares
    There's some insight for you
    I'll get my coat
    I'll be the bitch
    I heard that journeys end in lovers meeting
    But my journey ends when my heart stops beating
    I'm leaving

    Human heart in my hand
    Heart in my, human heart in my hand
    Taking it back, eyes straight ahead
    Cut it in half, better than dead
    Human heart in my hand
    Heart in my, human heart in my hand
    Taking it back, eyes straight ahead
    Cut it in half, better than dead
    Human heart in my hand
    Heart in my, human heart in my hand
    Taking it back, eyes straight ahead
    Cut it in half, better than dead Writer/s: Ellen Ciara Rowsell, Joel Donald Scott Amey, Jonathan David Oddie, Theodore Joseph Ellis
