Blow away
The remains from what was me
I can't hold on no more
'Cause there were maggots in that core

And you told me I should make my own choice
But when I tried to speak I had no voice
I was strong, I believed
Now it takes nothing to disintegrate me

Wake me up and see that I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive
Lift me up and make me feel awake
I'm awake, I'm awake

Why did you show me all your skeletons and fears
When I was eating all the glitter in your tears?
I restrained
You felt free
You couldn't taste the solace that flooding out of me

So now I'm blown away
Your premonition had the inside out of me
I was strong I believed
Now it takes nothing to disintegrate me

Wake me up and see that I'm alive
I'm alive, I'm alive
Lift me up and make me feel awake
I'm awake, I'm awake

    General CommentIn the first stanza, I believe its "'cause there were maggots in that CORE" instead of care, because it makes me sense. I think she was going for a fruit analogy.


    Really enjoy the lyrics to the song, by the way. "I was strong I believed, now it takes nothing to disintegrate me" is just lovely.
