Heartsounds - Race To The Bottom lyrics

Watch the temperature rise
It's nothing I can control, nothing I can hide
Every inner fiber aches for the warmth of what's inside
And as I shed my skin, I'm born again
A regeneration of human sin
This lure of flesh is like a rush of death
It awakens a sickness and resurrects
The lowest throes buried deep in my bones
I'm a slave to the marrow that lusts to control

Can you hear it now?
My guilty conscience playing on repeat
So sweet is the sound of shameful defeat
And though I swore I'd conquer this disease
A biological war still rages inside of me
Like a fire that begs on its knees for more kerosene

My past mistakes recur in spades
They never falter, no, they never stray
Comfort to control, convince to maintain
And this depraved path is like a transparent mask
It reveals every thing I wish I lacked
Take it all in one more time, I might never come back

Can you hear it now?
My guilty conscience playing on repeat
So sweet is the sound of shameful defeat
And though I swore I'd conquer this disease,
A biological war still rages inside of me
Like a fire that begs on its knees for more kerosene

I'm begging on my knees
