// Lyrics

They gnaw and gobble and smack their lips as they devour. Below the shiny surface the worms feast on my rotting flesh. And bit by bit I disappear until all that’s left is my empty shell. Nothing but a fragile facade. A paper thin veil for my darkness. Feeding on pain and despair they won’t stop till I’m hollowed out. Bit by bit I disappear. They gnaw and gobble as they rasp my soul into shreds. Feeding on my black thoughts the worms keep eating away. Below the shiny surface black thoughts keep eating me away.
