Consumption beating through the heart

Exhausted from the world still trying to fight

Seeing the good in people 

Struggling with all their might


But no one knows who they are

Some try to buy the world

Some struggle to stay high

Reality is, everyone's just trying to fly


Cut off your own wings

Because you're going to be a star

These scars, they are just dings

They are going to make you stronger, my oh my


Do what it takes to bask in that light

Not seeing your own plummet

Consumption rooted in the heart

'Till broken and all you see is vomit


It is a beautiful disaster

To see every ones heart

Trying to cut strings to their master

When they can't even see the fight


Consumption pulsing through the vein

We only have our self to blame

You take what's fake and claim as fame

So through these eyes the world's insane


Seeing corrupting madness

Trying to battle it with kindness

Lions squandering like mice

These eyes can see the real price
