In my home,
My shield of bones
I’m broken in two

The numbness creeps
The window weeps
And I cry
Oh, I cry out for you

The opening door, she taunts me
With what can be done
In my home,
My shield of bones
I’m broken in two

My blood, so sweet
Beats a bitter retreat
To the hole for my soul in the ground

The deep breath of life
Drown in water, thirst in night
And I
Oh, how I cry out to you

The opening door, she taunts me
With what can be done (I want to run away)
In my home,
My shield of bones
I’m broken in two

There is no more to take
There is no more left to take
There is no more to take
There is no more left to take away

Cross my heart
Hope not to die
’Till I can die next to you

Sticks and stones
They break my bones
Shocked in awe
I’m torn in two

The opening door, she taunts me
With what can be done (I want to run away)
In my home,
My shield of bones
I'm broken in two
