The trait that is still left on the killing floor for you
The smile as he still itches for killing more of you
The taste as he still catches me lasting to it
The recoil, they still dream of that lasting spit

Are you shutdown in it?
Shutdown in it?
Shutdown in it?
Shutdown in it?

Shut my eyes only once
Brought me back up for nothing
Yet it always seems like...

I live in the shit, I make it bleed
I won't ever quit, I cause the need
lying in my bed
telling me you're scared
of me when I'm god,
love me when I'm dead

The temptation still passes me lying for it
Only false reminders still drown myself trying for it
Only reaching upwards still squashes me under it
It's only god still seizing my final breath

Are you shutdown in it?
Shutdown in it?
Shutdown in it?
Shutdown in it?

Shut my eyes only once
Brought me back up for nothing
Yet it always seems like...

I'm drawn into it, I can't belong
Such a perfect fit, I won't be wrong
Holding on in vain
Telling me you're scared
Of me when I'm god,
Love me when I'm dead

I live in the shit, I make it bleed
I won't ever quit, I cause the need
Lying in my bed
Telling me you're scared
Of me when I'm god,
Love me when I'm dead,
Love me when I'm god,
Love me when I'm dead,
Love me when I'm god,
Love me when I'm dead,
Dead
Dead
Dead

I don't want to be shut down
I don't want to be shut down
I don't want to be shut down
I don't want to be shut down
