No safety, nowhere to hide
It’s chasing my demise

A new breed of paranoia has its hands around my neck
But you would never understand
The way it stalks and feeds on consciousness
I’ll put my back against the ocean
I am a deer in headlights,
Devoid of hope and petrified
A distant voice convinces me
If I can stay awake, then I can stay alive

A room of strangers, each one of them is watching me
I cannot separate my friends from my enemies
Primal desires took hold of me
If I could do it all again, I would have maintained my purity
No matter where I turn, it always seems to follow

There is no escape, so just pass it on
It cannot be stopped, so just pass it on
You’ll share in my pain, till you pass it on
I can’t fucking do this alone

It’s been days and days, now lost,
It doesn’t even falter
I can’t tell if you’re in my head,
or if you’re standing over my shoulder
I can’t tell the days apart,
It doesn’t even matter
Because sleep is closing in on me,
I guess I’ll just surrender.
