about

this song is about how we as a species will do things to excess even when it is harmful to us.

lyrics

I see, echoing the darkness around me
faceless, persona of my sin
Escape, not an option, I know I'm condemned to hell
imprisoned, self corruption, why do I hate myself

I've lost it
fucked up devotion
the walls are just closing in
implosive
self corrosion
all over my cracking...
SKIN (4)

Oblivious to the evil within me
Rip, it away, tearing all, that i know
as the skin falls burning from my broken bones
scorch the flesh, all my tears, turn to ash, in my mouth
delving deep into the dark and the unknown

Laughter, echoing the voices around me
pressure, building in my head
Escape, not an option, I know I'm condemned to hell
imprisoned, self corruption, why do I hate myself

I've lost it
fucked up devotion
the walls are closing in
implosive
self erosion
all over my cracking...
SKIN (4)

I got a deep evil burning within me
Rip, it away, tearing all, that I know
as the skin falls burning from my broken bones
scorch the flesh, all my tears, turn to ash, in my mouth
delving deeper into the dark and unknown

I know inside there is no way out
out of this prison that I built brick by brick
can I turn the sight of myself
with the enemy I know that's inside
