Lyrics Edit

The anger
The pressure
You're choking down your words again
Feel the nerves set in

Unspoken 
Frustration
They see right through you, paper thin
Like the ghost within

A heart that feels no pain
Addicted to the game
Breaking beneath the strain
I am paralyzed

The stare of
A stranger
Is like a wound that bleeds again
Silent as the dead

The victim
The martyr
Like Daniel in the lion's den
Time and time again

A heart that feels no pain
Addicted to the game
Breaking beneath the strain
I am paralyzed

I am paralyzed

A heart that feels no pain
Addicted to the game
Relentless mental drain
What do you stand to gain

Viewing life through such a narrow, fractured lens
Will ensure you end up on the losing end
Breaking beneath the strain

I am paralyzed
I am paralyzed
I am paralyzed
I am paralyzed
I am paralyzed
