lyrics

I can't shut my eyes
Haven't slept in days but I don't deserve to sleep
Hard pressed
Can't comprehend
That it's all the same when I shut my eyes
Keeled over reaching out what's left of me
I'll soon be reduced to just another bloodstain
Blistering soul can't cut the line even though
I've done everything perfectly
Tied down and every time I try to stand
the knots only tighten
Every hair has been split in two
with a glass blade that's just been sharpened
I cut myself again on this splintered glass
You've never been concerned
with anything that was real
This machine is identical
just smaller and its pumping out the same shit
Polluting enough to cover my eyes
and turn my back
but I haven't walked away quite yet
