lyrics

Take a scalpel, sort my insides
Stab at my lungs, drain what’s warm
Filled with winter, sew me up, make me yours

Look in its eyes
It’s what we wanted
Look at its face
It’s what we needed

You built me up and you gave me a name
Hard wired yourself to the center of my eyes
Had my brain soaking in chemicals
But you never knew I would be different than you

You’re in my blood stream anchoring sedatives, inducing sleep
You’re scaling my spine, broke in my thought life
Fixing my dreams and guarding my wake

You love a part of me and call it the whole
Rejecting passion in me that makes me feel full
Guilting me of what I do
Like acid on my skin you bite to break through

You built me up and you gave me a name
Hard wired yourself to the center of my eyes
Had my brain soaking in chemicals
But you never knew I would be different than you

Hands tied down, gas in my lungs, mouth sewed shut, eyes pried open.
Voices close, can’t understand them
Until they scream in my ears

You built me up and you gave me a name
Hard wired yourself to the center of my eyes
Had my brain soaking in chemicals
But you never knew I would be different than you
I would be different than you

You do not own me
You do not feel what I feel
