I tried to find salvation in things I could not control

Sick with need

Let my fear slip away like a soft swift wind

Trapped in the concert of my inner thoughts

It's too hard to keep walking when your feet are so scarred

It does not make sense to me,

How the angels in their purity,

Look in on my misery

Im spelling out my impending doom

Like messages on the refrigerator

Sick with need

The bird fluttering in my chest

Nothing drains the debris in my mind

Burn my throat and close my eyes

And it sits festering still

The rubbish dump of my insecurities

The dead cat lives in my head

The dead cat lives in my head

Dead cat lives in my head

Cat lives in my head

Lives in my head

In my head

In my head
