If I ever would have know this world was only scrutiny and lies,
I would have wished to never come here,
I would have never opened my eyes.

And in all my years,
out of all my growing fears,
what scares me most,
is I may never find my place here.

The older I get,
The colder I become.
I can't remember what it's like to feel,
all I am is numb.

My days run together.
My Head starts to spin.
I rarely find sleep.
I spread myself to thin.

I drive myself crazy.
I rack my mind.
I hope for a peace,
that I may never find.

But I want to change.
I want to love.
I want to find,
the things I'm void of.

But the pressure of this world,
it drives me insane.
Birth is the shackle.
life is the Chain.

Birth is the shackle,
life is the chain.

Born to be broken.

Birth is the shackle,
life is the chain.
