Chained my neck to the floor
Scratching and bleeding

A knife to my own reflection

I hate what I am
I wish I could be anywhere else
I wish I could be anyone else

I put my love for you
Under the guillotine
Now take a fucking look at what you've done to me

Bled out
Left to die

Choking on fur
Caring no more
Choking on fur
Chained to the floor

Pain won't cease

Fear floods a mass of meaningless lies
You turned your cheek and locked us away
Hideous souls covered up by plastic cheeks
Double chin and a broken smile
Thrown away forever baptized in shit
How can one love like this?
The bodies are pressed
The chains are short
My spirit is weak
Routine decays

I'm not fucking sorry
For a single word I've said

Heart has ossified
Your children need a family
No solace
No refuge
I will shudder

Under the breath of the hound

Why am I begging for you to give me a home?

The comfort of balance is fleeting
We fear for no progress at all
Oblivious to all the pleading
This burden weighs down so we crawl

Face pressed to the glass
The damage is already done
You've split me in two and we're troubled
That turning a blind eye has won

My gift of self has been raped

I am stuck
Bed of shit
Hide away
Losing it
Tears we've cried
Cutting wrists

Fuck you
You've ruined this
Our perfect home
Now flooded with piss

I want to fuck this place to the ground
