lyrics

Left the house again its gonna be a long night
Can’t look back now I’m already free falling in a swan dive
Wrong guy, right place, can’t seem to learn from my mistakes
Finding comfort in my chaos hide and seek let’s play the game.
Its not as simple as life, its not as easy as death,
Its intertwining lines between what really makes us exist
Escaping mundane while engaging in bliss, all it takes is a kiss
That’s my invitation to the abyss.

Our whole life here is a nightmare; we’re infected by the virus
Occupied us taking over all our wills to survive.
Have to fight before it rises, its alive and deep inside us
Let’s escape before too late I feel it taking my life.
Our whole life here is a nightmare; we’re infected by the virus
Occupied us taking over all our wills to survive.
Have to fight before it rises, its alive and deep inside us
Let’s escape before too late I feel it taking my life.

Only 3 steps left ahead of being dead, Decide which way
Each day I play with fortune’s fate will turn in to a torture maze.
I need it faster or I’m sick, both sides are burning candlesticks.
Can I quit; escape the dill I’m pickling inside my skin?
Neck deep deceit decides who gets to eat despite their desperate pleas
From hungry thieves who know their place let’s see how they will feed.
It’s frightening to me what came to be so quickly went from normalcy
to savagery without return that’s guaranteed.

And you aint never coming back
Conflicting sides of the tracks
Nobody knows where you at
You met your match

Stabbed in the back seizures settling my debts,
There’s no honor from the parasites that’s sleeping in my bed
Underneath their negligence is where I sucked for my last breath,
Desolation in the darkness, that’s where we finally met.
Destructive dissonance commenced upon my battered bones,
Went to hell and back confronted by the tempter with my soul
Rediscovered in obscurity secured my ticket home
Took this opportunity- escaped before my chance was gone.

Our whole life here is a nightmare; we’re infected by the virus
Occupied us taking over all our wills to survive.
Have to fight before it rises, its alive and deep inside us
Let’s escape before too late I feel it taking my life.
Our whole life here is a nightmare; we’re infected by the virus
Occupied us taking over all our wills to survive.
Have to fight before it rises, its alive and deep inside us
Let’s escape before too late I feel it taking my life.
