Lyrics

    Am I still tough enough?
    Feels like I’m wearing down
    Is my viciousness
    Losing ground?
    Am I taking too much
    Did I cross a line
    I need my role in this
    Very clearly defined
    I need your discipline
    I need your help
    I need your discipline
    You know once I start I cannot help myself
    
    And now it's starting up
    feels like I'm losing touch
    Nothing matters to me
    Nothing matters as much
    I see you left a mark
    Up and down my skin
    I don't know where I end
    And where you begin
    I need your discipline
    I need your help
    I need your discipline
    You know once I start I cannot help myself
    Once I start I cannot stop myself
