lyrics

This venom
It is eating me alive and it dripped from my own fangs
Now I can't breathe

Those eyes they are staring at me blankly
Concerned with what they see through the mirror

Those birds they are circling round in my head
Pecking me day by day

What did I do to deserve this lack of empathy?
I'd never treat you that way

And words, they are shifting and changing their meaning in this skull
And all of those high hopes and dreams they're receding
All is dull

I'd do anything to break free of this bully in me

These snowflakes, each one gathering on my face
Washing my cheeks with warmth
How they burn

These branches, they are bending under this weight
Struggling to bear it all
Of course they'll fall

And words, they are shifting and changing their meaning in this skull
And all of those high hopes and dreams they're receding
All is dull

I'd do anything to break free of this bully in me

I will escape
I'm gonna break free from my grasp
I'm gonna let go of the past
Put all of those thoughts on a shelf
I'm gonna break free from myself

This venom's killing me
I'm crushed
