Every day, I try to run, but in vain
Anytime I stop, it all starts again
In the shadows I cast
Silhouettes of the past
Every day, I lie and say that I’m cured
Even though I know they’re just empty words
If there’s nowhere to turn
Am I destined to burn?

Who is
My salvation
When
No one’s aware I’m at war

Chorus:

“Under this skin”
I feel a stranger, her sadness and her rage!
“Under this skin”
I hear her screaming and rattling her cage!
“Fight her! Fight it!”
I’m afraid of the dark!
“Fight her! Fight it!”
I’m afraid of the dark!
“Fight her! Fight it!”
I’m afraid of the dark inside me!

Every year, I pray that I’ll be released
On my knees, I beg and plead for some peace
And the answer’s the same:
I’m consumed by her flames

Who is
My salvation
When
No one’s aware I’m at war

Chorus

4 x
(Give me the light that I need to defeat the dark!
Give me the light that I need to escape!)
Give me the light [2, 3]

If we
Cursed instead of
Blessed,
Help me
Lay us
Both to
Rest

Bridge

Chorus
