Words, you speak but when you say them

Awake but hardly breathing
Buried yourself alive
Your past regrets we don't need them

While you waste yourself killing time
Hold forever in your eyes

And when the sun surrenders to the night
Your fears cast shadows deep inside
Go on and live like you're alive
Live like you're alive
Doors, the ones you never walked through
Do you see me standing unafraid and unassuming?
I'm yours to take away
Your past regrets we don't want them
This moment that we live in
The life you live is fleeting
You waste yourself killing time
You're drowning in your own sea of complication
If you could you own up to me
Live like you're alive
From a swelled earth the oceans rise
The rise and fall of blackened tides
Carry what we possess inside
Live like you're alive
