Shattered Pieces Lyrics

and this is how the world died
and this is how the world died

...i can hear you judging me.

(i'll hear your confession)
I FOUND THE BEST PIECE OF ME

(kneel down)
ALONE, SHIVERING IN THE DARK

(place your face between my thighs)
3 CENTIMETERS TALL

(& talk to God...)
EATING IT'S HEART
. but you will not feast on me today.

this is how the world died.

WHO WILL SLAY THIS THING?
(i forgive you)

WHO WILL PLAY THE BUTCHER & END MY SUFFERING?
(i forgive you)

... i fucked the minds of the masses with the fingers of liberty.
THIS IS NOT A THREAT. (this is not a threat)

i'm not perfect, i'm not a beauty queen, i'm just me.
(no one escapes this life alive)

WE ARE ALL,
PRISONERS HERE.

(all shapes & sizes)

... i scream for all the women i've never been but i hoped i would be.
(i'm proud of who i am)

FOREVER, CHASING THE SUN.
(i'm proud of me)

... she bites her trembling mind.

IT BEGAN AS ALL TRAGEDIES DO,
(forgive me, she's the one, forgive me)

WITH PAIN & DECEPTION.

... if you'll be the paper, i'll be the pen.
AND THIS IS IT . (i've tasted hell, & it tastes just like you)
MY FINAL PLEA.

NO ONE IS COMING TO SAVE ME.
NO ONE IS GOING TO CHANGE THINGS.

THE ANSWERS WILL NOT DROP FROM THE SKY.
I WILL NOT ONEDAY WAKE WITH A DIFFERENT DISGUISE.

THE ONLY SOLUTION ... IS REVOLUTION.

(art is war ... fight, fight)
pain makes me safe

. the odds were always against me.
(lose weight/clearly think)

I EXIST.
I AM BROKEN.

I EXIST.
I AM BROKEN.

. if god is my father then i am an orphan.
I AM BROKEN.

I'M NOT A MISTAKE
(my ancestry is a ghost story)

I'M A PROPHECY
(my love life is a crime scene)

I'M AN OMEN
(my self-esteem is a string of unsolved murders)

THE RADIO IS BRAINWASHING ME,
FILLING MY HEAD WITH THESE SELF-CONSPIRACIES.

. i am an emotional nightmare .

I CAN'T HIDE THE PAIN INSIDE
(builder of my own mythology)

JUST TELL ME ... YOU'RE LISTENING.
