Lyrics

It's true, we're all a little insane
But it's so clear
Now that I'm unchained

Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time
Fear is only in our minds but its taking over all the time

You poor sweet innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
You know you live to break me-
Don't deny, sweet sacrifice

One day I'm gonna forget your name
And one sweet day, you're gonna drown in my lost pain

Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time
Fear is only in our minds but its taking over all the time

You poor sweet innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
And oh you love to hate me don't you, honey?
I'm your sacrifice.

I dream in darkness
I sleep to die
Erase the silence
Erase my life Do you wonder [Our burning ashes]
Why you hate? [Blacken the day]
Are you still so weak [A world of nothingness]
To survive your mistakes? [Blow me away]

You poor sweet innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
You know you live to break me-
Don't deny, sweet sacrifice
