    Falling from my life deep to the sea
    Drowning from living to the depths of me
    Like the water that burns in my lungs
    And the light that slowly fades above me
    I'm bleeding rivers and they carried me to the sea
    Crushing in this pressure, turning to stone

    Roots rip my flesh and fill my skull
    As worms dance around my drowning body
    Feasting for the one that has gone...
    But I'm arriving, closing the door, ocean floor

    Seven steps from my cradle
    Closer to the end with every breath
    What is this hell that was made for living?
    I am arriving

    The giant has grown too big inside me
    Mountains of black stone, a volcano of dirt
    When it went wrong? Why am I here now?
    But not for long...

    Climbing up from this nest of nothingness
    My faithful steps behind me
    Marking my trail with circles, a path for you all
    We've been ripped out from the womb
    Through blood and pain into this life, and we cry
    Ripped out, given, but made to be taken away

    I've been hiding this giant for too long
    And it's grown like a parasite inside me
    Under this shadow I've been walking
    Now it's taken over me, and she...
    The pure girl, leave me before it's too late
    or I will cut your wings

    For I can't control this that burns
    It flows inside, through my every vein
    It fills my fingers and burns my throat
    Chains my heart again
    Insane pain

    I throw myself into this stream
    And let it take me down, underground
    Here I end, from here I begin
    The line is broken like my fragile body

    Flesh rots before the giant's eyes
    as he awakes from his silent rest
    Rips open my chest, steps out from this crest
    Don't take over me please, leave this lonely man,
    please leave.

    It's so hard for songs like this to not end up whiny and self-indulgent or detached and inaccessible. The mix of the metal and the melody adds to the story, the torture, and just ends up evoking... something else.... Thanks for the share HP.
