Until It Sleeps Lyrics
Where do I take this pain of mine?
I run, but it stays right by my side
So tear me open, pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps...

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays... so tear me open, but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, so hold me
Until it sleeps...

So tell me why you've chosen me?
Don't want your grip, don't want your greed
Don't want it... I'll tear me open, make you gone
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me
So hold me until it sleeps

It grips you, so hold me
It stains you, so hold me
It hates you, so hold me
It holds you, holds you
Holds you until it sleeps...

I don't want it...

So tear me open, but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me till I'm clean

I'll tear me open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shapes me
So hold me until it sleeps...
