Atreyu Lyrics

9. Slow Burn



It begins with a dark glowing ember,
something black burning it's way out of me.
Searing the flesh,
pain is the only thing I feel,
scars all I see

Oh no the fire's burning my insides again,
what can I do to silence my desire tonight?
Flames consuming reason leaving only ashes left
you will catch me regretting my decision,
I can't keep telling myself what I want to hear,
I can't just close my eyes

I know that it's killing me,
and it's poisoning, the best of me
What I say, I don't want to believe
So let me tell you more, tell you more
about the lies I lead

That is how I choose to douse the flames in gasoline
Broken teeth replace the blackout memories in my head
Wreckage from the past it haunts me, shakes me to the bone
(to the bone)
I know it's over but I can't go home tonight

But after this I feel as empty as the night before,
feel the pain and yet I'm still right here for more
Masochistic, nihilistic, urging backward thought
My life's a mess and I can't find a way to fix it

I can't keep telling myself what I want to hear,
I can't just close my eyes
(close my eyes, my eyes, my fucking eyes)

I know that it's killing me,
and it's poisoning the best of me,
What I say, I don't want to believe
So let me tell you more, tell you more
about the lies I lead

Calling, calling out
The darkest reaches of my soul,
are riddled with self-doubt
Crawling, crawling out
My will to fight will more than suffice,
when others would lay down

It's only as dark as you make it

I know that it's killing me,
and it's poisoning the best of me,
What I say, I don't want to believe
So let me tell you more, tell you more
about the lies I lead
