Negative

Written by: Derek Chos

I've been here before and I've never liked it
At the time it seemed to all crash down
I learned to look back and smile on those times
Where all I could ever do was frown

I've faced it all time and time again
Why can't I learn to avoid this fate?
My inner self screams to me now
"You fool, run now before it is too late."

And every time I let my heart take control
I die a little more
Every time I let my heart take control
Yes, I die a little more

And this twisted feeling
It takes me by my soul
And then this twisted feeling
It takes control

So tell me why we choose to return to addictions
When our last few hits nearly claimed our lives
Our hearts take the lead when we don't want it
No matter how hard our brains tried

Cross my heart, hope not to die
A path of ruin left in its wake
My inner self whispers to me now
"What else, what else can this poor wretch take?"

And every time I let my heart take control
I die a little more
Every time it takes control
Yes, I die a little more

And this empty feeling
Consumes my soul
And this empty feeling
Drives me deep in a hole

And I wait for light to shine
Stepping far out of line
And then this painful feeling
Takes me away
