lyrics

As I peal another layer of skin I find I don't like whats within
A parasitic stressful tone
Total mess all my own
This downward spiral of despair
Is long road going anywhere?
Distract me from the prize
Destroy everything left inside

Too many times I've sold my soul
Nothing left, I feel so cold

Eat my heart to the core
It beats no longer anymore
I wear these scars like a crown of thorns
This martyr I've become

Searching through these bloody roots to find what it meant to my youth
Adolescent ignorance guided by my "precious" pride
Now this mess is six feet deep
I am drowning in idols deceit
Betrayed by the ones that we all love
Suffocated by their scum

Too many times I've sold my soul
Nothing left, I feel so cold

Eat my heart to the core
It beats no longer anymore
I wear these scars like a crown of thorns
This martyr I've become

This ignorant deception of deceit guide me no longer
You can tare apart who I am
But you cannot destroy my passion
You cannot take my pride

You cannot destroy my passion
And you cannot take my pride!

This deadly sin has guide me through my hell
My waking dream
This nightmare from above
