lyrics

Some people just aren't cut out for heaven, or maybe I'm just not cut out for heaven.
The beasts in my head made a feast of my heart. Was it something I said?
Now, they're tearing me apart. It's not my body anymore. Who am I to tell them no, like there's something to live for? It's not the life for me to fight another day. I just wanna be free so stay the fuck out of my way.

My mind eats me alive, put your fists in the air if you've ever been there.
My mind eats me alive and my demons they find their strength in the night, yeah.
Hollowed out, carving a home for everything I've been fighting.
I follow now, I'm just a puppet I can feel them running my bones.

So hollow.

Some people just aren't cut out for heaven.
I turn my back to the beasts to release my mind of the pressure.
I let them off their leash, they tell me I'll be better.

I know the hell I've made, so young and so naive.
My reflections dimmer every time I see myself.
All of the song I've sang, all of of the wrongs I've made, everything I create wants a piece of me.

My mind eats me alive, put your fists in the air if you've ever been there.
My mind eats me alive and my demons they find their strength in the night, yeah.
Hollowed out, carving a home for everything I've been fighting.
I follow now, I'm just a puppet I can feel them running my bones.

The creases between my fingers grew more worn with every prayer.
Why had God abandoned me?
He claims to teach through these trials, did I need to be stronger?
I was just a child.

Send an angel, send the devil, I've seen struggle, are you ready for battle?
Send an angel, send the devil, I've seen struggle, I was born for battle.

My mind eats me alive, put your fists in the air if you've ever been there.
My mind eats me alive and my demons they find their strength in the night, yeah.
Hollowed out, carving a home for everything I've been fighting.
I follow now, I'm just a puppet I can feel them running my bones.

Some people just aren't cut out for heaven, or maybe I'm just not cut out for heaven.
