lyrics

Plan the escape in the creases of our minds
Exit through the valley of wonder
Dust of the scent you've left on the trail
Look through my skin for a target to impale
Desecrate the body we use to conceal what haunts us in our dreams
Fortify the walls that crumble under the cover of darkness
Nothing haunts us like that which lives in the corners of our minds
A sinister reminder that we never truly make it out alive

Shed my skin of this swallowed poison
Let my teeth splint open a smile
I want to die and be arisen
I want to be forced to protect my own survival

We walk around in our own heads, our own heads
Trying to repay ourselves of our own debts
Standing above our bodies contemplating our own deaths
Hedging our bets on the hope that anything is left

It weighs heavy on my mind, something I can't define
Sights burn holes through me, as I navigate the trees
Silently stalking the prey, as I race to get away
The chase will never cease, until I let my fear feast

Scalp my wounded body and take any pride I have left
Skin my tortured soul and expose what I've kept inside

Plan the escape in the creases of our minds
Exit through the valley of wonder
Dust of the scent that you've left on the trail
Look through my skin for a target to impale
Desecrate the body we use to conceal what haunts us in our dreams
Fortify the walls that crumble underneath the cover of darkness
Nothing haunts us like that which lives in the corners of our minds
A sinister reminder that we never truly make it out alive

I think I'm running free, but all the trees are looking at me
I think I'm running free, but all the trees are looking for me
I hear those footsteps coming
I hear those footsteps coming because we're all running from something
I hear those footsteps coming because we're all running from something

Phantoms vanish but brandish a lurking presence
Tangible and capable of serving our own death sentence
