At Our Expense – The Walls Around Me Lyrics

The walls around me stand tall
No breaks
I know what’s out there but there’s no escape
How long will it be? White flags admit defeat
My will has been dismembered
I’ve been dismembered

My head is spinning
And I can’t fucking think
I’m pacing back and forth
Wondering why you did this to me
I grew up with common sense
And self-resent
I gave more but I gained much less
Tearing myself to shreds again
Self-loathing isn’t time well spent
Give me the time to mend
I need some time to mend

Sever the ties and don’t look back
Burn down the bridge that closed this gap
Followed your footsteps here
Followed and lost four years

CHORUS:
The walls around me
Are built of stone
I’m trapped inside them
Forever alone
I’ll fall on my sword
And admit
That I have to let go

My eyes are getting so sore
From all the sleep I long for
This distance slowly eats away my patience
(You’re the bane
Of my existence)
The loss is keeping me awake
You’re scent is in my bed
The years you stole
Takes its toll
And I can’t pretend

CHORUS:
The walls around me
Are built of stone
I’m trapped inside them
Forever alone
I’ll fall on my sword
And admit
That I have to let go
