Captivity 03:03
I awake and wonder how the fuck I got in this glass case Impaled on the weight of the mistakes I made Failures and regrets I take to this grave On display And I will never circumvent this fate I never will escape it Lie awake, pinned to the illusion of an open space Hope is paralyzed by my mistakes I weep for our failures I weep for the loss Dust collects on the glass Obscuring the light from view Suspended animation wings Life hangs motionless Out there in the ether longing to be free Pinned to a white sheet Entombed in glass Anchored to my misery I weep for our failures I weep for our loss Alone with my regrets Imprisoned behind glass This is an emergency Break the glass
Like a baby I'm helpless But I'm not that innocent You change me and feed me But I'll come right back again Your milk I am drinking And you're growing much too thin It's your grave that I'm digging And this is just the beginning Maybe you're insecure Enabling my indiscretions Maybe you're just impure Alone in your own imperfection Like a savior I'm selfless I'm cleaning your wounds again I'll bathe you, I'll heal you I'll patch the holes in your skin It's my blood that you're drinking And your womb that I live in You love me, you praise me I wipe the blood from your chin Maybe you're insecure From bowing to too many masters Or maybe you're just impure A natural born disaster Like a sadist enraptured Indulging in my own sin Like a victim you're captured And losing all hope within You blame me you curse me As I drive the nails in It's your grave that I'm filling And this is the end of the line
