In My Stomach

This song is by Alkaline Trio.

In this shadow, I shrink and it knows
I can't move, it is making me cold
And it grows in my stomach like mold
It keeps me just sick enough to stay home

Kill the lights, curtains cover, closed blinds
Build a wall of stone and steel that will never come down
Let the dust colonize just like James the first
There will be no blood this time, in silence I'm yours
Twice deadbolt the doors

I've been followed by a face marked with pain
He came close once and he just learned my name
Every day he grows taller, he looks down at my heart
And through my throat, he could reach in and pull me apart

It gets worse when he contacts my eyes
He can see right through to everything that blackened my veins
And his sounds resonate up and down like a march through me
This battlefield, there's just not much left
So silence the rest

In this shadow I shrink
And it knows, I can't move, I can't sleep
Terrified by my own bloodshot eyes

So I'll wait here and pray
I prayed that I was all wrong about prayer
I do know that this is truly tired

It still grows in my stomach like mold
It keeps me just sick enough to stay home all alone
