Lyrics Edit

Happiness is just a word to me And it might've meant a thing or two If I had known the difference

Emptiness, a lonely parody And my life, another smokin' gun A sign of my indifference

Always keepin' safe inside Where no one ever had a chance To penetrate a break in

Let me tell you some have tried But I would slam the door so tight That they could never get in

Kept my cool under a lock and key And I never shed a tear Another sign of my condition

Fear of love of bitter vanity That kept me on the run The main events at my confession

I kept a chain upon my door That would shake the shame of Cain Into a blind submission

The burning ghost without a name Was still calling all the same But I just won't listen

The longer I'd stall

The further I'd crawl

The further I'd crawl

The harder I'd fall

I was crawling into the fire

The more that I saw

The further I'd fall

The further I'd fall

The lower I'd crawl

I kept falling into the fire
