    LYRICS

    This is a place I know too well
    Been down here a while, if you can't tell
    And I have analysed and tried my best to justify
    The sorrow I have brought upon myself

    Am I addicted to the misery, is this how I’ll always be?
    Grinding the salt into every wound
    Am I in love with all my ailments, glutton for punishment?
    You can’t trust me to be there for you

    I thought I had this, I thought I had this all figured out
    You’d think I’d learned from all the shit I fucking screamed about
    When there was sun I couldn’t see for the clouds,
    Still climbing the walls of this well just to dive back down,
    Until I reached my rock bottom
    Down to the marrow, bringing up the bad blood I’d forgotten
    Is it me that’s making me sick?
    Been burning both ends of the wick

    Am I addicted to the misery, is this how I’ll always be?
    Grinding the salt into every wound
    Am I in love with all my ailments, glutton for punishment?
    You can’t trust me to be there for you

    I’ve got this cold black silhouette hanging like a marionette,
    Casting a shadow, a shade over me
    Just a sick, sad, sorry mess, living like a masochist
    Your worst impressions were right about me

    I could ask you to stay, if you’re feeling forgiving
    I could live with the guilt, if you call this living
    I could try to memorise each grain of sand
    As it slips through my fingers, and falls from my hands
    It took me longer than I’d care to admit
    This life is only what I choose to make of it
    And the only thing standing in-between happiness and myself
    Was this depression I held so close to my chest

    Am I addicted to the misery, is this how I’ll always be?
    Grinding the salt into every wound
    Am I in love with all my ailments, glutton for punishment?
    You can’t trust me to be there for you

    I’ve got this cold black silhouette hanging like a marionette,
    Casting a shadow, a shade over me
    Just a sick, sad, sorry mess, living like a masochist
    Your worst impressions were right about me

    Wasting a waning youth
    Waiting for something to help me pull through
    I never saw the sun through the clouds
    I lost faith when the skies were falling down
