You saw me cry, You saw me willing to die, You sucked the lifetime outta me. You saw me plead, You saw me need, You emptied me out and the last drop made me bleed. You smelled my soul, You felt my hole, The void inside that aches for rest. You took my mind, You made me so blind, Consumed the whole of me till there was nothing left. You want crazy? I'll show you fucking crazy Because we all float down here. My limit's been hit And I'm just warning you that My actions are about to be severe. You want a psycho? I'll show you fucking psycho. I'll make you lose your mind and question yourself; have you in tears. Because we all float down here. Today I snapped, I really cannot adapt. I'm too big to fit in this box. You really pushed, Fully ambushed me. I pulled myself apart like little building blocks. This time I'm done, You better run. You're getting all me all at once. You say relax But I'm having panic attacks. I wanna rip my hair out; kick you in the cunt! All I wanna do is fold myself up. All I wanna do is fold myself up.

I smiled today, Everything was ok, I like when I control every piece of the dance. I feel alive When I make my own lies, Looking so 'in' that I'm lost in my trance. Further I fell, Was a beautiful hell, I started to believe I could altar the stars. I ate up the pain Like the flowers eat rain, It seeped into my joy; couldn't tell them apart. 'And how do you like it?' they said 'We'll take your dreams away'. Oh I don't like it when they take my dreams away. How can you walk on water when they take your dreams away? I don't want you to ever take my dreams away. I'm flying oceans alone, where are you? You said you'd wait for me. I'm holding onto a hope but fuck it, it's not reality. It's kinda hard to accept I been living in a fantasy land, But it was only a dream and now I have to wake up. It was only a dream and now I have to wake up. It was only a dream and now I have to wake up. It's kinda hard to accept I been living in a fantasy land, But it was only a dream and now I have to wake up. Devil may care, While the devils run scared. I'm in the end times but the fuck if I'll see. The earth is asleep; They're not counting sheep, I'm exalted on a hill, they're all counting me. Don't tell me it's smoke, On deception I'll choke. Leave here all the mirrors, let me live a glass house. The more that I take, Will be the harder I break, It's pretty in delusion so shut your mouth. I waited for one thing, Just something to give. Now I wait for nothing And why can't I live? Hacked into my mind Like a trip I once made. You took all my thoughts But don't take my dreams away. Don't take my dreams away.

I was laying in bed when a figure came over to me and put his hands on my neck. I couldn't make out his face but I know I've seen him before in those days I forget. Struggling for breath as his hand grips tighter and he puts the other on my eyes. It's like he's pulling all the air out, bit by bit, and I'm frantic cos it took me by surprise. I need to go outside so I run and I'm carrying him on my front like a weight. I need to feel the breeze so I stand out back in the garden and I'm naked but I'm burning. Hate that he's with me, Hate I'm not free, Hate I'm in panic And the demon is happy. Oh fuck off. There's a mess inside my head and it's right here where you left it. There's a mess inside my head where you left it Panic Demon. There's a mess inside my head and it's right here where you left it. There's a mess inside my head where you left it Panic Demon, Fuck you! I know what fear feels like cos I've felt is physically like a rush through my body. I know it always goes but I'm not thinking logically when the motherfucker's on me. Every time I'm alive he comes back as though he wants me to die and he wants to be the one who does it. Cos when he shows me his eyes he's showing me what hell looks like and I don't wanna go back to the pit. I scream every time. Feel myself die every time. I've died almost every week. I don't wanna die anymore. I wanna scream. I wanna sing my lungs out. I wanna be free. Don't wanna panic anymore. There's a mess inside my head where you left it Panic Demon. There's a mess inside my head where you left it Panic Demon, Fuck you! There's a mess inside my head where you left it Panic Demon. There's a mess inside my head where you left it Panic Demon, Fuck you!

I know a devil called Bob and he likes the weak and downtrodden. You'd better have a job cos he likes he 10% forgotten. If you've had a hard life, if you've been abused or you';re out of rum You can summon the one who can take it all away or a small sum. Are you seeking freedom? Are you seeking God? Are you wrap in chains? Do you want forgiveness from the unholy one? I know a devil called Bob and I wanna know, I wanna know, how the fuck he sleeps at night. I've seen a devil for real and he calls himself the righteous. He nothing more than steals from those who are more stupid than us. You may not have a big car but the one you fight for has two. You may not see angels but the one that you honour, he do. You may not have any riches but you've got just enough To line that motherfucker's pockets so he can tell you the blessed are poor, you are loved. We love you! Give him the desperate, his power it feeds. Give him the needy to fill all his needs. He looks at you cold cos he's dead in the eyes. He'll manipulate you and trick you with lies. And now his evil is in you. And now his evil is in you.

I've got myself outside. Do I look normal yet? The loneliness it rears Its fucking ugly head. I've got my life on backwards But I know how to fake. Despite my cloak of blackness I wear my happy face. Have you ever been so unsane that you wanna be someone else?

Too low to wanna be alone, too high for those to keep up. I've been at this party all my life and I just feel so stuck. It's loneliness that'll kill me; This empty, rickety swing. I've been waiting for a chance to soar but it's just nothing. Life, you ripped out my heart and then you ate it. Why am I all alone sitting on the swings? Lie to myself I'm fine because I hate it. Cry because I know I've no control of things. It's hard to be in the present when I don't feel presently here, I'm wired. My mind is racing through a million things and I just feel so tired. But I'd rather feel too much than feel nothing at all. I said I'd rather feel all this at once than be like you, above it all. If life is like swings, what are all these roundabouts?

They came into my home Took me and all I own Into their darkness Into their filthy abyss My friends all left in pain I won't see them again I'm in this darkness In this empty abyss They grabbed me, they bagged me They gasped at me trying to spring They took me, they shook me They laughed like I don't mean a thing. They crushed me, they hushed me 'Just wave' they said, 'Do what you are told' I'm lonely, 'It's only a while' They said 'In the cold' They clamp down with their iron fists, They stomp on my head and then they asked for a kiss And I'm hopeless. They don't even know I'm alive. They put me in a cage, I cannot get to you. They used me, confused me, They told me I wouldn't get lost. I'm just here to make them all feel like they are gods. They toyed me, they destroyed me, Threw me to pigs when they were done. I'm choking on hoping One day I will see the sun. They left me to die in the hurricane, They saved their own ass from the shame. I'm here in a box, will I breathe again? There's no one to love me, there's only the shame. My spirit is broken, my heart's weak. I tried to cry out but I cannot speak. I'm suffocating in the cage you built. So you act like a hero to erase the blood you spilt. They put me in a cage, I cannot get to you. (It's a blue cage, I'm suffocating) They put me in a cage, I cannot get to you. (Suffocating all 'cause of you)

This day is where I begin, Today is my own sanctuary. The sky has never been bright before, Today it glows. Mountains of green I can climb, The trees so high, just purity. My toes are gripping the grass, On the brook water flows. There's a fresh air for miles, It's gonna be my day today. This is my day And I'm lost in it. This is my place And you can't come in it. This is my day And I'm lost in it. This is my place And no you can't come in it. You always spoiled the fun, You never used to sit beside me. I've always wanted someone with me To share the view. The more life smacks me in the face The more I realise I'm all I need. Create a haven in my mind And disappear all new. Create a bubble around me 'Cause I can't let the bad in. This is my haven to find peace, Under the waters I spin. The air is clear, I can breathe, It's like a new beginning. The Velvet warmth of the only place I wanna be, Le fin.
