lyrics

Pale walls, yellow light
Sticky curtains block out other lives
Dusty breath, air so tight
Do you know when we last went outside?

Breathing in our stale smells
Stuck inside our empty aching shell
Will we ever leave this lonely hell?

6am, I’m your best friend
You grin and say, ‘for sure we’re on the mend’
A single lamp hums in the dark
Have we really made it to the end?

We go through this everyday
I should know by now there’s no escape
Still I cling to every word you say

You have shaped me with your hands
Now I don’t know who I am
Tell me who I am
I’m helpless in your hands
Tell me who I am

10pm, it’s you again
I watch your brain become a hurricane (And I’m the one to blame)
Buried deep beneath your voice
A child whelmed within a tidal wave (I’m guilty to the grave)
The bottles smash against the wall
You’re screaming it’s my fault when you fall
Who else is here to save you when you call?
When you end it all?

You have shaped me with your hands
Now I don’t know who I am
Tell me who I am
Tell me who I am

I’ve let you rule me since this began
I’ve let you tear me strand by strand
Tell me who I am
I’m helpless in your hands
Tell me who I, who I am

Set me free
I’m going to look for help I need to find some help
Set me free
I need to save myself

You have shaped me with your hands
Now I don’t know who I am
Tell me who I am
I’m helpless in your hands
Tell me who I am
