still beats your name lyrics – killswitch engage

who knows how long i’ve been lost in the dark?
followed closely by the footsteps of my failures.
what can i do to alter my perception of the way and the truth?

let this burden drift away.

who knows how long the void has swallowed me?
i only wish for nothing more than peace to find me.
how can this be? we’ve come so far
to let the weight destroy our grand design

let this burden drift away.
my pledge remains faithful to you.

and my heart still beats your name

[x2]
drowning once again.
will i live another day?
to reach the surface
let this burden drift away

drowning
choking
fading
life

is this the moment where i leave the blackness?
is this the moment of my rebirth?

who knows how long i’ve been lost in the dark?
followed closely by the footsteps of my failures.
what can i do to alter my perception of the way and the truth?

drowning once again.
will i live another day?
to reach the surface
let this burden drift away

drowning again
reach the surface
let it drift away
