In our fortress of shame
We're shaved down to the bone and left out exposed
We help ourselves out of the rain
When we catch the lies
Become embarrassed by the truth and won't dare move
Cause we keep on slicing the pain
Now there’s nowhere to hide
Showing up in the dark like the flame from a spark
Yet I didn't see it fall from my heart

Death is just a word
Stories go unheard
But I don't want them to know

That in our fortress of shame
We light candles to show them we can avoid them
Till the end runs me to a tread
When I click my fingers
You are here once again to brighten up my head
But you keep me on that tread

Death is just a word
Stories go unheard
But I don't want them to know, knowwwww

In our fortress of shame
We build towers too tall
So we see nothing at all
Our fortress has no reason to stand
