lyrics

With a slice and the pulling of flesh
We tear out everything that's unfit
To place you neatly inside a little box
That has our face on the outside

The cracks of worry creeping from your eyes
Betrays the loneliness you have to hide
And the weight of a desperation
That crawls inside

Under layers of thin porcelain
Caked with paint by strict instruction
Is a smile warped by scarring skin
Pulled taught with all your effort

Not the same as us

The cracks of worry creeping from your eyes
Betrays the loneliness you have to hide
And the weight of a desperation
That crawls inside

(Shattering) What is left when it washes away
(Shattering) Face the truth as the colours run
(Shattering) Whose reflection are you looking for
(Shattering) Is it worth the pain to be rid of yourself

Rid of yourself
Rid of your self

You are denied all that you love
For your desire to become whole
You are denied all that you want
For wishing to be like we are

With a slip of the knife
We’re reaching inside
We cut out the best of you
The best of you

The cracks of worry creeping from your eyes
Betrays the loneliness you have to hide
And the weight of a desperation
That crawls inside

(Shattering) What is left when it washes away
(Shattering) Face the truth as the colours run
(Shattering) Whose reflection are you looking for
(Shattering) Is it worth the pain to be rid of yourself
