[Verse - 01:41] 
No innocent exit when hope dies,
And claustrophobia buys my mind,
I ran to breathe contagious lies,
No reason for just living life.
Ripcord opens but my soul is cold,
With you I never felt more alone,
Skin never sweating dignity,
Kept my line beneath ecstacy.
[Pre-Cborus - 02:09] 
This fragile prison of sanity,
An ocean wave to death babe,
Masochistic love going nowhere,
You're nothing, pestilence, a seed.
[Cborus - 02:24] 
Lips I kiss just another plague,
Love can't fix the hole they made,
Condemned to rock N', oblivian's all we know.
[Break - 02:40] 
[Note: The open D in this part is actually played more than once in a kind of chugging manner,
but for clarity's sake I've left the extra notes out.. figure it out yourself, it's not hard]
