lyrics

1. Rude Awakening

This is the place where I go to emote.
To fill and to spill and to burn and to choke.
Where the feelings that I’m feeling, they all go up in smoke,
And in flames go the words that I couldn’t have spoke.

This is the place where it all comes apart.
Where the walls that I’ve built crumble down at the start
Of the music, ‘cause I use it to pry open my heart.
Force my inside to the outside while I’m calling it art.

This is the place where it comes to a head:
The passion and the hatred, the doubt and the dread.
Where I find that I’m unwinding at the tug of a thread.
And I’m coming undone from inside my head.

I cannot sleep.
I can’t fucking breathe.
I’m strangled by silence,
But here I can scream.

You took someone broken, you made them feel brave.
You took someone lost, you made them feel saved.
‘Cause in a world that tells us that we’re wrong,
You made me feel right, made me feel I belong.

I cannot sleep.
I can’t fucking breathe.
I’m strangled by silence,
But here I can scream.

Because inside me there is a violence
That only screaming could ever silence.
Because inside me there is a violence
That only screaming could ever silence.

This is where I come alive, this is what I need to survive.
This is where I come alive, this is what I need to survive.
I’m finally home.
