Lyrics

  You left me here 
  What am I supposed to do? 
  I never dared to look inside 
  Just like you told me to 
  I'm going into you again 
  And I know you saw it too 
  And I will keep myself awake 
  I know what’s coming
  I feel it reaching through 
  There is no moving past 
  There is no better place 
  There is no future point in time 
  We will not get away 
  
  The world is bleeding out 
  It folds itself in two  
  Behind the background world 
  Is always bleeding through 

  Are you sure this is what you want?
  As hard as you try not to see it
