I have to live my life this way
Making every wrong a right today
Acting like I know just what to say
Perfection is all that I’ve known
I don’t know why I can’t satisfy the voices inside of my head
But I know if I can’t please them than I’d be better off dead
An obsession I keep locked up inside
Obsession that I can never disguise
Obsession that feeds me all my lies
Obsession that pushes me over the edge
(And controls everything)
So tired of it but I find that I can’t win
The obsession right here inside of me is pulling me under again

It’s just the perfection taking over my life
It’s just the constant pressure running under my skin
I just won’t stop who I’m trying to be
It’s just the obsession that I hold inside of me

I see all the mistakes in me
And throw them all away from me
You hide an obsession inside you
You’re perfection is just like mine
I don’t why I live this way but it’s all I understand
Everyone wants to judge for the simple that I am the way I am
But everyone has an obsession locked up inside
Obsession that I can never disguise
Obsession that feeds them all they’re lies
Obsession that pushes them over the edge
(And controls everything)
So tired of it but I find that I can’t win
The obsession right here inside of them is pulling them under again

It’s just the perfection taking over my life
It’s just the constant pressure running under my skin
I just won’t stop who I’m trying to be
It’s just the obsession that I hold inside of me

It’s just the perfection taking over my life
It’s just the constant pressure running under my skin
I just won’t stop who I’m trying to be
It’s just the obsession that I hold inside of me

The obsession inside is just a part of me
The obsession inside is just a part of me
The obsession inside is just a part of me

The lights go out
I feel nothing will save me
The lights go out
I feel nothing will save me
The lights go out
I feel nothing will save me
The lights go out
I feel nothing will save me

It’s just the perfection taking over my life
It’s just the constant pressure running under my skin
I just won’t stop who I’m trying to be
It’s just the obsession that I hold inside of me

It’s just the perfection taking over my life
It’s just the constant pressure running under my skin
I just won’t stop who I’m trying to be
It’s just the obsession that I hold inside of me

    General CommentForbidden Theory is a 6-piece Nu-Metal underground band from Washington DC. There underground debut "Hidden Truth" dropped over the summer and this song featured on it. I follow a lot of underground artists and these guys were some of the new artists that caught my eye.
