Track Name: Spotlights And Papercuts
I hold my breath, you check the time
I dive right in, you check the tide
Stare at me until I collapse - you agreed to follow a weak paradox
I lead the way, it's meaningless - lucky us, I'm oblivious and a fake
They didn't break me, I was already broken

I know it's killing me, and I know it's coming back for more
I know it's underneath me, should I be fighting back?

Never enough
Wake up to the sound of defiance, Spotlights and Papercuts

Mannequin's eyes pry away and we breed no resistance to their sight
Describing sunsets to the blind, so they could catch a glimpse
To retch the void and evade its depth
Wounds wide open, I should remove the ashes but I'm forever lost to apathy

I know it's killing me, and I know it's coming back for more
I know it's underneath me, should I be giving up?

Wake up to the sound of defiance, Spotlights and Papercuts
Never enough
Wake up to the song of the sirens, you held the world in your hands

I hit the ground so hard that no one could ever dig me out
That's a feeble attempt to an old hopeless case

All bridges shall fall apart

We're not heading North, I was afraid (lying) and now we're lost
Past is not behind us and we're engulfed by its dawn

Never find a place to call it Home

Wake up to the sound of defiance
I guess you'd never understand
Never enough
Wake up to the sound of defiance, Spotlights and Papercuts
Wake up to the song of the sirens, you held the world in your hands
