failure to thrive lyrics – devastated

i’ll be the victim of cerebral decline
for the duration of my life
immobilized, i fixate on the floor
this consciousness i endure is ending

i can’t face the day, i can’t run away
i just can’t run away, i just can’t run away
and i can’t sleep
because at night i shut my eyes to even more
uncertainty
i just can’t run away, i can’t think or speak

i’m frozen in my bed, my brains awake
but my body is dead
and it feels like i’ve been here before
it’s an illusion no more, i keep circling

i collapse, don’t wait for me to come around
i’m worn, i’m beaten down
i collapse, don’t wait for me to come around
worn out and beaten down

i can’t sleep, i can’t die, why?
