Eating Me Away

Words and music by John L. Cooper.

"It's eating me away," I said to God
It's rotting in my mind, it's like a cancer
Is there anything, anything at all to numb the nothingness
I need a reason to breathe, it's eating me away

Chorus:
Save me from the rage
And my humanity
I'm more nothing than being
Is this my legacy?
Feel it eating me away

Eating me away, it nibbles at my brain
The question of my existence, and the matter of pain
I shake my fist, I shake my fist,
At the cosmos and my insignificance
I need a reason to breath, it's eating me away

(Chorus)

All that I am, all that I want
All that I lack, come on and save me
All that I am, all that I want
All that I lack, come on and save me
 
(Chorus)
