[Verse 1]
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs,
Pissed off at myself for what I’ve done.
I’ve been down this path,
I’ve felt the wrath of the sins from my past.
It burns so deep, what I’ve done to you I’ll never escape.
It burns so deep, you’re everything I’ll never be.

[Chorus]
I need to open my eyes
To see again, to see the way I was back then,
Gotta find my way, gotta find a way back again!
Tear open my chest
To dig around and tell me why I’m such a mess,
I got a fear that my heart got up and left.

[Verse 2]
Oh, I’m somewhere drifting hanging out with regret,
We're laughing, making jokes of past things I did.
I call apathy my one and only friend,
Keep a distance I could be contagious.
I’m a little twisted and in dire need of assistance,
I won’t quit these habits if I know I can't have it,
Because, because I’m sick, I’m a dick!
I’m quick with my words, draw on me you'll get hurt.
I’m scum, I’m numb, there's nothing you can do to me that I haven't done.

[Chorus]
I need to open my eyes
To see again, to see the way I was back then,
Gotta find my way, gotta find a way back again!
Tear open my chest
To dig around and tell me why I’m such a mess,
I got a fear that my heart got up and left.

[Hook]
I am a shadow, the hollowed out shell
Of a man that was, a man that was...
I am a shadow, the hollowed out shell
Of a man that was, a man that was...
You're my mistake!

You're my mistake!
I’m the villain of this metropolis,
I’ll sink this ship, I’ll burn this bridge,
I’ll end what little life we're in!

[Chorus]
I need to open my eyes
To see again, to see the way I was back then,
Gotta find my way, gotta find a way back again!
Tear open my chest
To dig around and tell me why I’m such a mess,
I got a fear that my heart got up and left.

[Bridge]
Does it make sense to feel so spent?
Get this off my chest, has the best of me came and went?
Does it make sense to feel so spent?
Get this off my chest, has the best of me came and went?
Does it make sense to feel so spent?
Get this off my chest, has the best of me came and went?
Does it make sense to feel so spent?
Get this off my chest, has the best of me came and went?

Is this feeling passing? I keep asking
Is this temporary? Please be temporary

[Outro]
They say it gets better with time,
Well, it's been time enough and I want to live my life.
I let you down now you've got me on hold,
I just want to go home.
