In the center of my chest Just a little to the left Lies a Marianas Trench Where it's darkest at its depths With these nails caked in blood Through flesh and bone I dug Wrapped my fingers 'round it, bleeding Ripped it out while it still was beating Remember the man with his hand on my mouth Who threw me in the River Styx? Well another one came to drag me out As I succumbed to the same sickness, 'cause It's so easy to love It's harder to lose Sometimes I fear that I enjoy the abuse See this hole in my chest? It's a testament Of how I'm heartless Stuff it full 'til filled with straw The tragic flaw has been withdrawn From a distance, none can tell Whether human or a heartless shell Since I first formed fists or words From the moment of my birth There's been this devil in my ribcage Now the last lament of its dying age Remember when I resigned my self To float into the mouth of hell Now healed of the hurt That forced hand to insert into chest I can climb out and exhale, 'cause It's so easy to know Harder to let go The veins only tighten and Their roots sink below This is its final blow 'cause I'm fine Being alone regardless Yeah, it's so easy to love It's harder to lose Sometimes I fear that I enjoy the abuse See this hole in my chest? It's a testament of how I'm heartless. In the center of my chest Just a little to the left Lies a Marianas Trench Where it's darkest at its depths, yeah Devotion is a threat Dependence equals death Beckon vultures to descend Let their greedy beaks peck Let them scour and devour Until there's nothing left Then I'll finally become Heartless
