lyrics

The piece removed had made the hurt go,
So now I sleep but still I'm so low,
Forced to face the depths of this mind,
And terrified of what I'll find.
Escapin' to the TV, a black hole,
I'm fallin' through this couch it's a black hole,
This grey winter apartment,
Is closin' down around my head singin...

I could stand tall, turn my face to the sun.
This is a gift not a curse and I'll find there's no need to run.

Been knocked down for what seems like so long,
Haven't slept a night through,
Now I try to go back to normal
But I can't see how I'm gonna do
Need that thing that's gonna kill the hurt
And the boredom and the sorrow too
All at once through this shaking body
I realize what it's goin through.

I could stand tall, turn my face to the sun.
This is a gift not a curse and I'll find there's no need to run.
