    Lyrics

    This is the life of a woman with demons
    The first time we met I was sure she was steaming
    This is my life, this is my life
    What a life
    Life isn't precious and life isn't sacred
    Sometimes release only comes when you meet death
    A night of reprieve we were wrecked when we slept in the park
    When we woke in the morning you cried could I squeeze out the dark

    Destroy the noises that make all the voices
    Get them out of my head
    Bring on the screaming and I'll take your demons now
    that I'm all already dead

    Days of release when she almost felt better
    Gradually faded and words couldn't get her
    Where is the light, where is the light, get the light
    Fearless and clear all her doubts had been cast off
    Last night alive is a nightmare I'm part of
    Dreams are a lie, dreams are a lie
    So am I
    If that's all there is then I might as well get in the fire

    Destroy the noises that make all the voices
    Get them out of my head
    Bring on the screaming and I'll take your demons now that I'm already dead
    Oh how the rights of the righteous kept coming
    Shining before like the day
    I stand before them and cried that you're dying your way

    I'm still not sure if the right and the wrong side is one
