there's almost nothing left
you eat my kind for breakfast
what did i expect?
to come here and find anyone?
find open arms to greet me
and friends to feed me
i sicken myself so much
and you eat my kind for breakfast
you eat my kind

whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whenever i let my guard down, whatever i was ignoring
whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whatever i have been given, whatever i have been

seeing myself this way
i am a monster i believe
and seeing is believing
is there no doubt left
when i poison myself
and poison leaves no appetite
i sicken myself so much
i sicken myself so

whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whenever i let my guard down, whatever i was ignoring
whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whatever i have been given, whatever i have been

did we expect these things to change
by waking up and suddenly there they are
and all i need's a starting place
and nothing ever seemed so hard...

whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whenever i let my guard down, whatever i was ignoring
whatever i fear the most is whatever i see before me
whatever i have been given, whatever i have been

    General CommentThis song is about using self-recrimination as a defense mechanism against taking responsibility for your own life. I don't see it as being about substance abuse, but the psychology of addiction definitely comes into play.
