This weight on my chest will crush me I feel my rib cage start to crack I push against it,
But this pressure is a pressure that will pull my fingers back Face down in a pool of slurry Black sludge seeps deep into my lungs Cough up the grime or face the fury of the lashings of a Hundred thousand tongues
My reflection grasps my throat And holds my face beneath the skin of the lake I submit, I feel it drag me under I bend the knee until my legs begin to break I suck it up ‘Cause what I want, I never want it bad enough
My reflection bears the weight of the world upon it
My reflection wears the face of a snake I submit, I feel it drag me under I bend the knee until my legs begin to break
My broken body’s dancing in the flame I’ve only got myself to blame ‘Cause what I’ve got, is never going to be enough To get me through the days with no confidence
And what I want, I never want it bad enough My outside mask is making a promise I can’t keep
Drag the knives from my carcass Clench a fist, Break through the surface of the water
Do I fold beneath the weight of the world or do I Spit venom in the face of the snake?
Can I stand upon my own two feet or do I Bend the knee until my legs begin to break?
My outside mask is making a promise I can’t keep So cut the tongue from my mouth
