Perfect body rotting, outside still is hiding
There’s a killer burning, creeping through my veins
Make me feel distorted, left me here a coward
For running, I’m running, I’m running, run

Bow down for me, bow down for me
Feel like I was meant to die but somehow stayed alive

Time that I encounter, call in my surrender
I fear that I won’t ever cover up these wounds
Leave the world a sinner, see my soul grew thinner
And thinner, and smaller, the longer I’m alone

The fear is so alone
The fear is so lonely
I hope it never finds me
I pray it doesn’t get me

    General CommentSounds like it's about a mental illness. The song describes how it's controlling his life, and although he's healthy outside, he's a mess internally. The song makes it sound like it's depression, and that he thinks about suicide, but doesn't succumb to it, and is constantly running from that thought. In the end, he's hoping he never does succumb to it.
