I can't breathe today
Time is running out
Airways closing in
The things that I'm without 

I can't expand this box
Claiming me, it's golden prize 
The walls are slowly closing in
Like every time an angel dies

This feeling of eternal hell
To suffocate on dying pride
Maybe this is where I begin 
To think that I was dead inside 

It's cozy now within these walls
They fit me like a worn-out glove
To rise again after the fall 
This time I'll fill my heart with love
