You once were happy,
But you played the host,
To a parasite in your arm,

Oh you're exhausted,
Your soul's drained away,
They've taken all you've got,
They drink your blood, they suck you up,
They suck your blood, they suck you up,


They tear away all your wings,
Feed on your voice, you cannot sing,
You don't know where you belong,
You wonder how it all went wrong,
You took a kiss to the lips and then a dagger to the heart,


Your loyal servants,
They made you king,
Their heavy crown has worn you down,

You should've seen it,
You should've known,
It was you were serving them,
And no good deed goes unpunished,


You've fallen prey to the Earth,
They stripped your bones for all you're worth,
You've been consumed by everyone,
They're not aware of what they've done,
If they could they'd break your chain, only you can free yourself,


The thunder has spoken,
A lifetime you owe,
The guilt of existence,
Will drag you below,


Come on, come on, come on let me out,
Come on, come on, come on, come on let him out,
Come on, come on, come on, come on let me out,
Come on, come on, come on, come on let him out,
Oh, oh I'm alive,
Oh, oh I'm alive,
Oh, oh I'm alive,
Oh I'm alive, oh I'm alive,
I see it now, the weight is off,
Don't let me out, freedom cannot be given,
You'll have to take it,
You'll have to take it,
You'll have to take it,
You'll have to take it,
