lyrics

Broken mirrors laid out in front of me, I can't choose which ones to use...
To look into my eyes and find these scars of abuse...
Could the sight of my true likeness return life to a meaning,
As the sun falls from the sky, helplessly screaming?
Now what can I do, now that my very shape has dissolved?
What will I use to evolve, to take that next step?
To guarantee that I'll emerge from the ashes, spirit and flesh?

Look at me, what have I done?
How can you turn your back on me now?
Broken down, all on my own, dead again, with no way to return...
Look at me, what do I do?
You promised me you would be by my side...

Broken bones inside of me, piercing my skin
To dig through these wounds and find there's nothing within
Could the sight of my true face give this nightmare a meaning,
As the sun falls from the sky hopelessly screaming?
Now what can I do, now that I've lost my resolve?
What will I use to evolve, to take that next step?
To guarantee that I'll emerge from the ashes, spirit and flesh, again?

There's no skeletal remains of what once was
The pain has left me nothing but a shell
There's no skeletal remains of what once was
With nothing left to anchor me, I'm heading straight to Hell

Living without a backbone, it must be hard to stand erect
What do you think of when you're alone?
You just might be the next one yet
Now that I know what it's like, what it means to be like you
I've got an agenda, your bones can be broken too.
