"Crib"

CRIB Lyrics by Effloresce
call my name, i am one in a million
i am still alive waiting for you, don't turn away
take me out of this prison for a life in liberty
look around and discover the agony
see into the boy's eyes
untended and manky we spend our time
no kind words or tender hugs
we are empty shells
we exist just on paper, not in reality
locked away, hungry and broken-down
disremembered little souls
you are my saviour, my hero in darkest nights
you showed me beauty, the world outside
i will wait for you, no matter how long it takes
you are the sunlight in the midst of all this pain
i try to resist, i try to hold the head high
every single hour
i try to survive, i try to keep up for a better life
till you come back to me
night seems so quiet, seems so pretty and enviable
nothing to fear, nothing bad, just breathing the dead air
i call your name, one in a million
the thought of you keeps me alive, i won't decease
a meaningless life in a crib made of steel
breaks my pride and makes me cry inwardly
till my eyes will be filled with delight
you are my saviour, my hero in darkest nights
you showed me beauty, the world outside
i will wait for you, no matter how long it takes
you are the sunlight in the midst of all this pain
