Artist: As Paradise Falls


I can feel it now,
There’s a fire growing within my very chest,
Slowly it begins to spread and inside I know,
That this is all that I will feel,
This is all that I can see,
There is a darkness inside of me
For where there torment there is hate

Where there is love there is also pain,
I have been clawing at these walls to try and make an escape,
Am I insane or the only one who truly sees,
What has now come to pass,
And what is still to be?

For years these visions and images
Have been in my nightmares,
But now I see them as a guide as I remain,
My pulse is quickening,
As I see my entire life flickering,
Hold my heart in your hands and feel it beat

As my body convulses and my world begins to shake.
I won’t call these white walls a home anymore,
I’ll rip the ceiling from the rafters,
I’ll burn this prison down,
The visions are flooding in,
Now they are all that I see,
You can’t tell me different

There is nothing you can do,
To save me now,
There is a cancer,
That is consuming,
My, entire body,
And should my visions start to shake,
Will I remain,
All I was born to be,

You can't,
Save me,
I am barely alive
It seems my body harbours the darkness within me,
I've let it fester and grow,
I have given fear all control
