lyrics

Hush, don’t make a sound. Don’t wanna wake.
He who lives inside, a very cautious state.
Nobody knows, exactly why he waits.
For them to smoke him out? Consciously desired fate.

Closed…to know, too scared to find out…

That I am the frightened one
Too blind, and my eyes won’t ever come.

Feel that? He shakes. He’s listening.

Now hidden away, slumped down in this cave.
Half comatose and nervous. He says…
“Am I your pet? Your little plaything?”
No we’ve always known, exactly what we made.

Known to those, who ridiculed and scathed.

That I am the frightened one
Too blind and sheltered to find the sun
Yes I am the frightened one
Too blind, apathetic to resolution.

Save me. I’m here. I’m listening.

And you, you will find me crawling on all fours
Animalistic, dehumanized, knowing nothing more.
Yeah you, you will hear me, I’ll be struggling for air.
This gasmasks a necessity, chokings too hard to bear.

With finally finished running
And sick of all the time
The only life that’s wasted
The only life’s that mine.

Set me free
Please release me.

Please enunciate what I mean to you.
Demonstrate who u are.
Alliterate all aid aiming at
Investigating all your crimes.
Unannounced, I’m here and you
You’re wishing I was not.

‘Cause I am the frightened one
Too blind and sheltered to find the sun
Yes I am the frightened one
Too blind, apathetic to resolution.

Save me. I’m here. I’m listening.

Please enunciate what I mean to you,
Demonstrate all your crimes.
