These thieves that live inside my skin
Have weighed my down with lies and bricks
They stole my joy or questioned it
But I can’t give up, I won’t give in

All I seem to know for sure
Is that I know nothing anymore
I need your arms, I need your eyes
To wake me up, bring me to life

Sometimes I find
That I am fine
The walking dead
Brought back to life
My legs are numb
But know that i
Am going home
And yet I find
That I'm not fine
These bitter bones
Are growing tired
My legs are numb
They know that I
Am far from home
I need your arms, I need your eyes

These demons deep inside my chest
They do their dance. They stab and twist
Bury hope with more regret
A counterfeit paralysis

you set my feet to dance
breathe life into this calloused chest
i am the dead alive
the dead are brought to life in you
