My greed, my fear

Once again in a world of my own
With nothing left to do
Everything looks different now
Reality is seeping through

There are those who want to tear me down
To turn me into them
I've tried so hard but it's been so long
It's happening again

This is the world you live in
Consumed by lust and love and hate
Restrain and try not to give in
Pray that it's too late
This is the world you live in
You're eaten to the core by fear
Restrain and try not to give in
And hide behind the masks you wear

My greed my fear my tears won't come
They've dried in the sockets I've come undone


So struggle in this world of your own
Knowing there's no way to escape the truth
Everything tastes bitter now
Nothing is fresh and nothing is new
There are those who want to make you theirs
To make you one of the herd
My only defense is that I've never cared
My screams go unheard

This is the world you live in
Consumed by lust and love and hate
Restrain and try not to give in
Pray that it's too late
This is the world you live in
You're eaten to the core by fear
Restrain and try not to give in
And hide behind the masks you wear

This is the world you live in
You're eaten to the core by greed
Restrain, try not to give in
We tear, we watch it bleed
This is the world you live in
You're eaten to the core by fear
Restrain and try not to give in
Hide behind the masks we wear
