Lyrics: Your voice so shrill, It keeps me up at night
Ten seconds of silence is a beautiful thing
Them words break bones, can't even put up a fight
Every move every step, my ears start to bleed

No mute, no pause, white noise, stuck on ten everyday
Partner from hell, by my side, all my life, killing me softly

Someday i'll outrun the speed of sound
Take a million regrets to drag me down
Empty this hourglass, enjoy a string of failures
Gather all my thoughts, and slay all these demons
You'll fade eventually, I'm taking over me

I'll turn you down, in time i'll cross this bridge
Blood runs down like water, picking up the pace
Sold my mind to you, such a viral disease
Leaning over the edge, with you in my head

Break it down, shed it off, fade it out, the healing grows and begins
Voices wreaks of despair, all humming atonally

Someday i'll outrun the speed of sound
Take a million regrets to drag me down
Empty this hourglass, enjoy a string of failures
Gather all my thoughts, and slay all these demons
You'll fade eventually, I'm taking over me
