lyrics

I’m gonna bury my thoughts down in a hole
'til they can no longer breathe
choke the life right out of them, make them see
what they do to me
they’ll be begging for mercy

I’m gonna bury my heart down in a hole
'til it can no longer beat
smother the life right out of it, make it feel
what it does to me
it’ll be crying for clemency

and I’ll consider requests
for forgiveness
but only on my time
and when I’m good and ready

I’m gonna hide away your voice inside my head
deep in the darkest part
I’ve made a special place for it
Where it can't tear me apart
Where I can't hear it plead for a new start

and I’ll consider requests
for forgiveness
but only on my time
and when I’m good and ready

once I was afraid
to put these things in their right place
but I’ve made my choice
and I don’t need thoughts, don’t need a heart
and I can do without your voice

and I’ll consider requests
for forgiveness
but only on my time
and when I’m good and ready
