Bringer of Doom

paranoid that it won’t be much longer
paranoid that I’ve come all this way
with hardly a loss and hardly a word against
but who’s keeping track that I’ve been getting it slack

bringer of doom, enter my room, tell me the wait is over
bringer of ends, it only makes sense to cut through this safe enclosure

paranoid that I’m soft in the middle
paranoid that piss’ll run down my leg
strangers will watch and loved ones will turn away
but who’s keeping track that I’ve been getting it slack

bringer of doom, enter my room, tell me the wait is over
bringer of ends, it only makes sense to cut through this safe enclosure
and find out what I might withstand

never had a beating, left motionless and bleeding
I’ve never had a car crash and taken flight
never had a break in where innocence was taken
I’ve never had a good friend jump through the light

bringer of doom, before you I swoon, carry me limp and senseless
into your den, let no one come to my defence, I’m wholly willing

to find out what I might withstand
to find out what I might withstand
to find out what I might withstand
to find out what I might withstand
to find out what I might withstand
