Bleeding Through

My father was my teacher
The one who taught me how
To dam up the River of Hurt
Now I wonder how he did it
I wonder what I missed
I can’t ignore it anymore
The flood is just to god damn much to hold

And now my pain is bleeding through
My walls are tumbling down
Defenseless
And now the siege is beginning
Emotions taking hold
I’m senseless

I’ve fallen into a lie
I’ve broken myself down
Into a thing of endless shame
Now I’ll hold the gun to my head
I can’t wait to be dead
Failure is all the voices say
Why the hell did I end up this way?

This pain, it’s
Eating me
Cheating me
Beating me
Defeating me

And now my pain is bleeding through
My walls are tumbling down
Defenseless
And now the siege is beginning
Emotions taking hold
I’m senseless
