lyrics

STRAIGHT JACKET

WILL I SPEND A LIFETIME RUNNING FROM MY OWN SHADOW?
THE MORE I ESCAPE, THE MORE LOST I GET
I ACT OUT MY ROLE – I’M GIVING IT ALL, UNTIL I’M EMPTIED
AND I WATCH THEM TAKE WITHOUT EVER FEELING REGRET

CHARADES OF IGNORANCE – COLLECTIVE HUMAN REGRESSION
FACADES OF BENEVOLENCE – WITH A CONSTANT THREAT OF REPRESSION
YOU’LL GET WHAT YOU CRAVE
BUT YOUR CONSCIENCE IS ALL YOU CAN TAKE TO YOUR GRAVE

…AND WHEN THEY CRAVE BLOOD, I SLIT MY VEINS OPEN
I ENDURE THE PAIN WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE
I STARVE MYSELF- TO FIT INTO THE STRAIGHT JACKET
I’LL FADE AWAY SILENTLY WITHOUT A TRACE

CHARADES OF IGNORANCE - COLLECTIVE HUMAN REGRESSION
FACADES OF BENEVOLENCE – WITH A CONSTANT THREAT OF REPRESSION
YOU’LL GET WHAT YOU CRAVE
BUT YOUR CONSCIENCE IS ALL YOU CAN TAKE TO YOUR GRAVE

LOST IN THE PAGES OF A BOOK FULL OF BLANKNESS
SEARCHING FOR SUBSTANCE TO BREAK THROUGH THE VOID
READING OF BIRTH DEATH AND HUMILIATION
CHAPTER BY CHAPTER MY HOPE IS DESTROYED
A PRE-DESTINED FAITH, A DESTINY WRITTEN
WILL I BECOME WHAT I HATE AND DESPISE?
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, WILL I HAVE THE COURAGE
TO TEAR OUT THOSE PAGES AND TAKE BACK MY LIFE?
