Hurt

I hurt myself today To see if I still feel

I focus on the pain 

The only thing that’s real 

The needle tears a hole

The old familiar sting 

Try to kill it all away 

But I remember everything 
[Chorus:]

What have I become 

My sweetest friend 

Everyone I know goes away 

In the end 

And you could have it all 

My empire of dirt 

I will let you down 

I will make you hurt 
I wear this crown of thorns 

Upon my liar’s chair 

Full of broken thoughts 

I cannot repair 

Beneath the stains of time 

The feelings disappear 

You are someone else 

I am still right here 
[Chorus:]

What have I become 

My sweetest friend 

Everyone I know goes away 

In the end 

And you could have it all 

My empire of dirt 

I will let you down 

I will make you hurt 
If I could start again 

A million miles away 

I would keep myself 

I would find a way
