Withered - Lyrics by A Static Lullaby


Lyrics

where did summer go?
it left me to wonder when the bottle will tap out.
and the sun will rise.
i woke up yesterday with a hole in my chest...(yet i felt no pain)
numb to all feelings (life in winters chill)
to feel the warmth in this bottle is useless (when you wake up its gone)
when you wake up it all starts again.
i learned to break yesterday...destroy tomorrow.
i've watched each leaf fall off my tree.
i've watched the seasons change.
(Yet I felt no pain!)
Numb to all feelings. (Life in Winter's Chill)
To feel the warmth in this bottle is useless. (When you wake up it's gone)
When you wake up it all starts again.
It all starts again
Why step aside when you fall back in line?
It all starts again!
Why? Why? Why?
Oh, misery is so beautiful.
Yet I felt no pain.
Numb to all feelings
Life in winter's chill
To feel the warmth in this bottle is useless.
When you wake up it's gone.
When you wake up it all starts again.
(I need this! I need this! I need this! I need this!)
I need this!!!
