Lyrics:

Who can choose not to die?
An appetite for misery, and all its abuse
I don't trust myself
To see what is real
I'm lost, lost on this ocean
All biochemical machines
Reality's a distant dream
Guarded shadows, losing luster
Sick words we never muster
Mind is rotting, all looks bleak, I feel insane
It's a lie, all won't be well, can't heal this pain
Down, down, down crumbling down with this pain
What a mess
So meaningless… and doubting everything
I don't trust these hands
Make me a queen
I've killed, killed the emotion
All mathematical machines
Reality's not what it seems
Guarded shadows, losing luster
Sick words we never muster
Mind is rotting, all looks bleak, I feel insane
It's a lie, all won't be well, can't heal this pain
Down, down, down crumbling down with this pain
So true a fool of hours
Sweet thief who robs me sour
Slow hours bid this slave goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Mad in pursuit now
Gluttony is pity now
Shun the heaven now that has lead me to this hell
It's a lie, all won't be well, can't heal this pain
Down, down, down, crumbling down with this pain
