I know the feeling
The essence of the truth
That golden moment
I know the feeling
You can't refuse the embrace
You gotta reach out and pull it all in
So you swallow another dose
Filling up your soul
You never want to let go
The most basic ingredients
And feel the dirt, grief, anger and strife
It kills you a bit at a time
It will leave you writhing on the floor...
This nourishment, life is bent
A twist of fate, all my own
Take a step away and look around
Look deep inside, hypnotize
That's what it is all about
You will never let it slip away
Like the flesh so warm that the thorn sticks into
Try to hold on just a little longer, stronger
The chasm of misery
You will always know the flavor
You drink up the sky
You know the reason why
And what you are, there is nothing else
The lips of wonder kiss you inside
It all comes down to this
That made me feel this way
Flood, sell your soul, feel the blood
The element that's everything
Look deep inside, hypnotize
You will never let it slip away
Like the first time love urged you to take guidance, in silence
Like the way you cry for a happy ending, ending
