AS GOOD AS YOU SAY

Can you feel my blood
Running down your arm
From the blade you put inside my heart from back to front
Now the bleeding stops
From all the gleaming cuts
Growing sick from all the begging and the petty stunts

You were caged up
You were tied down
You were burned through from a thing you can’t remember now
I’ve been beaten
I’ve been cut
I’ve been strangled but I won’t shut up

Break me down
Lift me up
(So just show)
Show me the door
But don’t let me out
(Where I belong)
Will I fall for you
Cause I’m only as good as you say that I am

I’m only as good as you say

Do you see my shadow
On the wall behind you
Can you feel me stalk you through the night until the morrow
When the blade is down
And the feeling’s high
You will see me crawl out of my grave

You’ve been caged up
You’ve been chained down
You’ve been burned through and through from a damaged soul
I’ve been beaten
I’ve been cut
I’ve been strangled but I won’t shut up

Break me down
Lift me up
(So just show)
Show me the door
But don’t let me out
(Where I belong)
Will I fall for you
Cause I’m only as good as you say that I am

I slip away into a vesseled state
To test my bitter taste but i can’t stay awake today
It’s easy sleeping when you’re barely alive
I polarize the mental image when my anxiety’s on high
I’m so sick of planting corpses like seeds
They don’t grow into trees
They just rot underneath my feet
Impeding demons stealing human beings meaning
Cleaning out my mind is imprisoning the darkness that was birthed inside
I need a light in my life illuminated
A mind unstill that’s so rusted and dated
Eaten alive just like a parasite that’s out of sight
I’m out of sight and it’s paradise, no
I slip away into a vesseled state
To test my bitter taste but i can’t stay awake today
Suicide is contagious this season and it’s the reason i’m breathing
And i’m not letting go

Break me down
Lift me up
(So just show)
Show me the door
But don’t let me out
(Where I belong)
Will I fall for you
Cause I’m only as good as you say that I am

I’m only as good as you say
