lyrics

Wake up my love, won't you wake up!
For the likes of them, you will never be enough.
Gave them your body, your soul and something more,
and they took you for all that you're worth...

They'll take your life, but they'll keep you breathing.
This respirator plugged into your core,
but a body can only take so much abuse before it responds

It comes and goes, this sickly feeling, the notion that you're being used
But there's something inside that pushes you to provide
while they squander, consume and exhume
What remains, of your fragile frame now,
once beautiful, strong and ornate
Your organs all fail as your skin starts to peel
They lap at your blood while you emaciate

Patient while they rip you apart
I don't see how you can stand to
eviscerate yourself
While they lick their lips and lie in wait to feed

You're still breathing, though your breath has grown ragged and short,
They wait restless outside and they paw at your door,
knowing that your body still has a little more
And what comes next? What of tomorrow?
When you break and just snap clean in two,
Will you lament your own end for that which you could not give
or feel the weight of misuse and abuse


Patient while they rip you apart
I don't see how you can stand to
eviscerate yourself
While they lick their lips and lie in wait
To do as they've always done

We have come undone (in waves and droves)
Born to tear you apart (in waves and droves)
