The Enemy Inside Lyrics

  • The Enemy Inside Lyrics
    August 5, 2013 - 10:17pm

    Over and over again
    I relive the moment
    I'm bearing a burden within
    Open wounds healing under my skin

    The pain is real
    As a cut that bleeds
    The face I see
    Every time I try to sleep
    Staring at me crying

    I'm running from the enemy inside
    (The enemy inside)
    Looking for the life I left behind
    (The life I left behind)
    These suffocating memories
    Are etched upon my mind
    And I can't escape from the enemy inside

    I sever myself from the world
    I shut down completely
    All alone in my own hidden hell
    Overcome with irrational fear

    Under the weight of the world on my chest
    If I fall and break as I try to catch my breath
    Tell me I'm not dying

    I'm running from the enemy inside
    (The enemy inside)
    Looking for the life I left behind
    (The life I left behind)
    These suffocating memories
    Are etched upon my mind
    And I can't escape from the enemy inside

    I'm a burden, I'm a travesty
    I'm a prisoner of regret
    Dream of flashbacks and of violent dreams
    I am hanging on the edge

    Distaster lurks around the bend
    Paradise comes to an end
    And no magic pill
    Can bring it back again

    I'm running from the enemy inside
    Looking for the life I left behind
    These suffocating memories
    Are etched upon my mind
    And I can't escape from the enemy inside

Over and over again
I relive the moment
I'm bearing a burden within
Open wounds healing under my skin

The pain is real
As a cut that bleeds
The face I see
Every time I try to sleep
Staring at me crying

I'm running from the enemy inside
(The enemy inside)
Looking for the life I left behind
(The life I left behind)
These suffocating memories
Are etched upon my mind
And I can't escape from the enemy inside

I sever myself from the world
I shut down completely
All alone in my own hidden hell
Overcome with irrational fear

Under the weight of the world on my chest
If I fall and break as I try to catch my breath
Tell me I'm not dying

I'm running from the enemy inside
(The enemy inside)
Looking for the life I left behind
(The life I left behind)
These suffocating memories
Are etched upon my mind
And I can't escape from the enemy inside

I'm a burden, I'm a travesty
I'm a prisoner of regret
Dream of flashbacks and of violent dreams
I am hanging on the edge

Distaster lurks around the bend
Paradise comes to an end
And no magic pill
Can bring it back again

I'm running from the enemy inside
Looking for the life I left behind
These suffocating memories
Are etched upon my mind
And I can't escape from the enemy inside
