Verse 1

Nothing is left of me.

I stare at my exuvie.

Wondering

If I can crawl back inside it again.

Can it take

Away the numbness that feels so heightened?

Chorus

Cast off the part connected to nerves

To cast away the pain that still reverbs

Deep inside my beacon of darkness.

There's no escape from this sacred place.

Cast off the part that wants to feel once more,

And lose the key to this sanctuary's locked door.

Verse 2

Nothing is as it seems.

I'm living in someone's sick dreams.

Waiting for

A new skin to grow back and cover me.

They'll attack

It till I turn it into exuvie.

Chorus

Cast off the part connected to nerves

To cast away the pain that still reverbs

Deep inside my beacon of darkness.

There's no escape from this sacred place.

Cast off the part that wants to feel once more,

And lose the key to this sanctuary's locked door.

Bridge

Lose the feeling of belonging, I don't belong.

They feed me Gospels of "hold on, stay strong".

But my skin is thickest only when I shed it.

Chorus

Cast off the part connected to nerves

To cast away the pain that still reverbs

Deep inside my beacon of darkness.

There's no escape from this sacred place.

Cast off the part that wants to feel once more,

And lose the key to this sanctuary's locked door.
