this is what i am
this is what i've become
gritting my teeth
broken down and flooded
tired of waking up
with blood on my hands
lift my head to a red dawn
keeping my fear bottled up
beneath that ground where i stand
pulling myself above this sinking ship
staring at the stars
harboring my secret behind these lips
but i won't keep these eyes shut
i'm holding my ground
holding on to what i have left
everytime you throw yourself away
look at me now
tearing my lungs apart for my turn
burning bridges behind me
slashing my way through the underbrush
of this broken society
look at me now
broken glass under my feet
and a scarred skyline screaming at me
my torn skin etched with the stain of this bleeding earth
left to breathe the vapor of a poisoned air
look at me now
