Silently she wept to be numb
As her universe is folded like paper
Pathogen thrived behind her eyes
Draining her blind
Fading into isolation
She was the death of a martyr, birth of a prisoner, living in a cell alone
Her voice box ripped from her throat
She was too honest in this world of deceit
You must march with the brainwashed
Or give up the ghost
She has one foot in the fucking grave
But she wishes it was two.
Love is nothing but a charade, faith will quickly be erased
Love is nothing but a charade, faith will quickly be erased
Society bleeding out
Shredding her perception of danger
Her dreams turn into nightmares
Why is this sense of bereavement beginning to intensify
An outcast for failing to fall, at their feet
No force fed lies will escape, her fragile mind
Her sanity, her sanity belongs to them
She's breathing but without a meaning
Greed has never been so tangible
Your isolation is a certainty
So hold your breath
Now you're on your fucking own.
