What's the point of carrying on?
I'll only end up hurting those I love again
For picking me off the floor

'Cause I'm scared of losing it all
Of watching as my castle slowly tumbles down
Of a barrier at the shore

Oh February, be kind to us
When all I want is lost


Look into my eyes
Colder now in spring
Was it no surprise?
I'm so glad you came


How did we get here?
With a crater between us
This city is poison
And it's pushing us out
I was in Heaven
I want to share it with you
In a world that hates us
Got to see it through


I'm in pain without you here
I live in a shallow grave
Please don't you ever leave

Oh tomorrow I suffer enough
Hold me above the throne of a god
Oh tomorrow please only be kind to us


Monsters eating me inside, jumping out
Out of a gap in the wall
This room is so cold
Yeah I live here
Will someone tell me who is in charge?
Tell me who is responsible
