While She Sleeps

This song is performed by While She Sleeps and features Andrew Neufeld.
Surrounding me is a picture of a world gone wrong
Paved with sickness and the broken young
Count the saved, count the graves, count the cuts and taste the blood in the rain
They are the worthless unforgiving, the murdered amongst the living
So why spend your time, waiting and wishing and praying for a better living
Oh, when you're force fed their decisions

You'll all just get bitten again
I can't piece together the problems, I'm telling you to think for yourself
I can't put peace in the violence; I'm not going to fight it
I can feel the breath on the back of my neck
I'm spitting blood to get your voice out of my head
I'm feeding on the pain of the sick, the needle and the hospital bed

We are nothing like these creatures. Guilty, scarred, I can't forget
You starve pride to feed your selfishness
We are nothing like these creatures. Guilty, scarred, I can't forget

You still feed the hunger leading you to your death
You'll give it up when you've got no time left
You're breeding in a national debt. You starve pride to feed your selfishness

Surrounding me is a picture of a world gone wrong
Paved with sickness and the broken young
Count the saved, count the graves, count the cuts and taste the blood in the rain

Have we given up? Should we hang our bastard young?
To save them from the nothing that so many have become

We're all dead behind the eyes, we're just dreaming of a better life
We're all dead behind the eyes, we're just dreaming of a better life
We are nothing like these creatures
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Guilty, scarred, I can't forget. You starve pride to feed your selfishness
We are nothing like those creatures
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Guilty, scarred, I can't forget
I let the bastards surround me
I let the bastards surround me
I let the bastards surround me
