My Hands Are Empty Lyrics – MACHINE HEAD

Lyrics to «My Hands Are Empty»

Misery, cover me in waves
The heartache is slowly
Withering, I become her slave
Succumb to the darkness

Suffocating like I’m drowning in sand
Depression’s got me by her cold dead hands

Treachery, the choices you made
Cut my heart open with this golden blade

My hands are empty, lies so petty
My hands are empty, kill me gently

Medicate, I watched you slowly die
The powders and pills
Disintegrate, you right before my eyes
The emptiness haunts me

Glass reflections of a cold dead stare
Ingesting chemicals of death with no care

Memories, they haunt me they stain
Of what you once meant to me before this pain

My hands are empty, lies so petty
My hands are empty, kill me gently

I, I will not hide these scars of mine
(Take away the shame)
I, I will not be what’s left behind
(Find someone else to blame)
Forgiveness, constricted
No longer human
A ghost in time
