Fighting off all of the dreams that keep me awake.
Every night the stars go out I'm left to question my faith.
Am I alive in this dream state?
Maybe the planet has shifted out of place.
We're all destined to be alone in this world.
There's nothing to lose, we'll watch it all burn.

Everything is in it's right place,
The planets align and it ends just as it began.
All I can see is darkness,
I can feel it consuming me.

It has nested right inside of my chest,
But my heart is the only organ left.
Every time I feel it beat the darkness inside is feeling the heat.

I am merely a vehicle,
An absolute sign of the end to come.
All that we say has no worth
And martyrdom is only a nine letter word.
I will dig my way out,
Crawling through the dirt and my blood.
Digging through all of my flesh and my veins,
My fingers finally find an escape.

I peer through the hole and all that I see
Is the light I have dreamed of since my very first day.
I am now reborn,
And your existence is never ensured.
