Ok over a year ago, i had a falling out with a friend (Yes shes a girl) who i really liked. We'd been friends for years and well sh*t happens right? Long story short being i screwed up and well this song describes it quite well IMO.

Its sung with a Crossfade, Breaking Benjamin, James Blunt (Not high pitched) Starsailor, Seether sound to it lol, since they are my main influences for lyrics.

It is still unfinished and im working on it amongst other songs for a band me and a few mates are planning on starting, heck i haven't even found a name for the song yet lol.

*HINT* The meaning is 7 words long. Took my mate an hour or 2 of looking at the lyrics to figure it out lol.

(Verse 1)

Try to forget all that stupid shit that i said and done
Recurring thoughts place me at the scene (relived twice again)
Investigative minds study and prod at me
Sanity is lost again (they all say)

Always lying to myself, burying this pain in a ocean of glass that surrounds me
No result you see of this fall to the ground
Abyss is opening (Help me)

(Chorus)

Protect me from this evil inside
Its engulfing, suffocating me
Grabs me from the dark and pulls me down through the ground
Grab hold of me (So Cold)
Only you can see (So Dark)
The hurt you once dished out to me

(Verse 2)

Improper words used to describe your physical being
Fragile moments soaked in sweat (It drips down your face)
Used like an old abandoned towel, for emotions sake
Create this void between everyone

Knife that strikes me in the small of my back
Emptiness you try to hide (Thats not the truth i know of you)
Dedicated to survive, I see the figure stand alone (On the inside)


(Chorus)

Protect me from this evil inside
Its engulfing, suffocating me
Grabs me from the dark and pulls me down through the ground
Grab hold of me (So Cold)
Only you can see (So Dark)
The hurt you once dished out to me
You know that it hurt me!!!

(Bridge)

Ulcerated inside your own mind
Protect you i once did
Brought the coldness upon yourself
Incredible what it cost you isn’t it?
Glass is filling this ocean once again
Truth becomes all we know as lies
Induced into your own coma
Meet me when your selfloathing
Empties into the abyss in the floor!

(Chorus)

Protect me from this evil inside
Its engulfing, suffocating me
Grabs me from the dark and pulls me down through the ground
Grab hold of me (So Cold)
Only you can see (So Dark)
The hurt you once dished out to me
You know that it hurt me!!!

(Chorus x2)

(Outro)

So what does that make us now?
Am i an enemy, or someone you once used to know?


*Crits welcome*
