lyrics

Shaken and out of mind
Tired of the run
Why did your actions outspeed mine
Did I try to hide
How many times did the exit sign shine

Taken and used
Like a helpless rhyme I was abused
How did I ever trust in your lies
I couldn't see past those eyes
Tortured while blind

(Baby, baby) It's too late you've hit the floor
(Mayday, mayday) This bomb's about to explode
And I won't be around to take the blow
Look around guess who's a whore

Overseas fabrication
Mass produced ambitions
Pain being sold as a cure
Suppress all that can't be quantified
You believed I'd be okay with being your toy
That's a maybe that you'll never know
We can't hide inside memories
Create the illusion of being controlled

These mirrors betrayed
Your naked body
Behind your reflection
I saw myself torn

Where should I go
These moments we had so far gone
No, I will not mourn

Here's to hoping I'll last through the day
The mess, your shame is there no end
A lifeless body screams
I want to live

Once upon a time
Aesthetic dominated
The world but
Have we really changed
It's all fake
Please provoke my senses
Enlighten this empty shell
Please provoke my senses
Enlighten me

Step by step I
Restore my
Distorted mind
Oh step by step I
Take back my
My life

The steps we take
The picture blurs
This is not my fault
But I'm trying to solve
