(Verse 1)

The deception, inside, is, cutting, from, every, direction.

Like, a thousand, thorns.

Feeling, the wrath, of, an unforgivable, nightmare.

My, heart, is, already, torn.

Hoping to, hear, the sound, of, redemption’s, horn.


(Chorus)

A hundred, stories, told a million, times.

And, I, still, haven’t scratched, the surface.

Words, can, no longer, explain, my, situation.

I’ve fallen, into, another, pit, of, devastation.


(Verse 2)

Trying to, hide, from, what shouldn’t be, seen.

Choosing to, lie, from, all, these, memories.

I’m, sinking, down, into, the depths.

I’m, thinking, this, will be, my, death.


(Verse 3)

The outside world, is, controlling.

I, can’t, continue to, keep, delaying, and, sustaining.

Do, you, know, what, it’s like, to die?

Fear, so, frightening, hitting, you, like, lightning.


(Chorus)

A hundred, stories, told a million, times.

And, I, still, haven’t scratched, the surface.

Words, can, no longer, explain, my, situation.

I’ve fallen, into, another, pit, of, devastation.


(Verse 4)

Our, bonds, have been, convicted, we, run, from, our, addictions.

Only, to be, caught, in, their, traps, sooner, or, later, we'll collapse.

Greed, supplies, jealousy, opening, our, minds, to insanity.


(Verse 5)

Love, and, hate, tied, in, a knot.

One, breaks, the other, craves, faith, is, all, I’ve, got.

I, ask, myself, why, shun, the gun?

It, just, creeps, back, in, the middle, of, the night.

Suffocating, it, blows, my, mind.

Suddenly, I’ve committed, another, crime.


(Chorus)

A hundred, stories, told a million, times.

And, I, still, haven’t scratched, the surface.

Words, can, no longer, explain, my, situation.

I’ve fallen, into, another, pit, of, devastation.
