Black Earth

This song is by Dayseeker and appears on the album What It Means to Be Defeated (2013).

The needles that pierce my veins
Are drowning my world in flames
I pray for this to stop but they burn, they burn

No holy book, no plea's to the sky
Will subside the fiending inside my mind
I don't think that I'm ready to die yet
But I'm so close I can barely stand
My reflection shows a demon in me
But I just want this to stop now
Can you hear me? I just want this to stop now

I'm helpless when my heart is heavy
When there is nothing else
To tell me I am worth the effort to save myself
Amidst the chaos in this sea of flames
My eyes turn from this black earth

Everyone I know is looking down
Their eyes filled with shame
And everything I need is right in front of me
But I just need to see
The water that I sink in could be the same I walk on

The truth is I'm still learning wrong from right

They burn my world, I can taste defeat
But I will make sure the earth sees one day that I'll be free from this sea of flames

Black earth, I turn my eyes to see a new world where I can find peace
