Oh as I shit I sit and wonder why
My floor's so cold and my back's broke and tired
Life is good even though it won't be long
With the candle comes emotions
Dancing the shadows on my walls

What were your thoughts
As they were flying through your mind
Compared to what you feel 
From the bars you're now behind
If they could speak, what do you think they'd say to you?
I do believe you'd be better off if you just told the truth

I never had a problem till I stood face-to-face with me
And I wish there was a way for me to go inside
So I could see
All the faces of the people who have torn a piece off me
As I grew from a seed, oh to a tree

Can you feel the power of the eyes
It's hidden away five feet from where we lie
What do you taste when you take a drink with me?
Is it too much for me to ask if I was to ask you to leave?
Oh please just leave
'Cause I want to be alone

Oh, there's a fine line between love and my feelings for you
High time we washed it all away
Unkind, you watch your future burn before you
Denied the chance of any love in your life

I never had a problem till I stood face-to-face with me
And I wish there was a way for me to go inside
So I could see
All the faces of the people who have torn a piece Torn a piece off me
As I grew from a seed to a tree.
