Lyrics[]

I hold my breath as this life starts to take its toll
I hide behind a smile as this perfect plan unfolds
But oh, God, I feel I've been lied to
Lost all faith in the things I have achieved

And I, I've woken now to find myself
In the shadows of all I have created
I'm longing to be lost in you [Away from this place I have made]
Won't you take me away from me?

Crawling through this world as disease flows through my veins
I look into myself but my own heart has been changed
I can't go on like this
I loathe all I've become

[I've woken now] I've woken now to find myself
In the shadows of all I have created
[I'm lost in you]
I'm longing to be lost in you [Away from this place I have made]
Won't you take me away from me?

Lost in a dying world I reach for something more
I have grown so weary of this lie I live

[I've woken now] I've woken now to find myself
In the shadows of all I have created
[I'm lost in you] I'm longing to be lost in you

I [I've woken now] I've woken now to find myself
I'm lost in the shadows of my own
[I'm lost in you] I'm longing to be lost in you

Away from me
