Behind the eyes of my compassion lies a suffering soul And in my blood a bitter darkness slowly taking it's toll I feel the death of our connection and the fading of light Between the shards of sudden panic from choking on my life
I see the scars of your addiction and the feeling you hide A blackened heart from all the hatred you will never rewind Within the depths of your depression hear you pleading for help Your just a shell of vacant ruin, a portrait of myself.
I can't breathe alone You can guide me home.
CHORUS: I am the face of your affliction. Feeding new life through the cracks in your skull.
Beneath the skin of your aggression is a thickening fear A swelling plague from every devastating voice that you hear You feel the throes of contradiction in the world that you left Another day in your delusion, the never-ending death.
I can't breathe alone You can guide me home I can feel you here You can draw me near
CHORUS: I am the face of your afflication. Feeding new life through the cracks in your skull. I am the pain of your conviction Stabbing you right through the back of your soul.
