Decay
akEnya Lyrics


You keep my feet high above my head
And my spine is tucked between my knees
I thought I would only know decay when I was dead
You make wilting something of ease

I never wanted to be twisted up like this
I think my body might get sick enough and quit
I never wanted to be twisted up amidst
All the prey that you claim for the taking

You wanna defeat me
You're trying to play me
(Got me) acting like I'm crazy
But frankly
I don't want to be around this
I don't want to stand for your bullshit, no
My energy isn't feeling you, you're not healing me you just
Wanna defeat me
You're trying to play me
(Got me) acting like I'm crazy
But frankly
I don't want to be around this
I don't want to stand for your bullshit, no
My enemy, I keep fighting but you keep killing me, you just

Turn my insides outside one by one
Dim the bright side of my attitude
Shatter any matter of the woman I'd become
Take my breaking bones as gratitude

I never thought I would be twisted up like this
But I know my spirit hasn't given up so I persist
And resist the urge to sit and reminisce
Of the days when you lay unawakened

You wanna defeat me
You're trying to play me
(Got me) acting like I'm crazy
But frankly
I don't want to be around this

I don't want to stand for your bullshit, no
My energy isn't feeling you, you're not healing me you just
Wanna defeat me
You're trying to play me
(Got me) acting like I'm crazy
But frankly
I don't want to be around this
I don't want to stand for your bullshit, no
My enemy, I keep fighting but you keep killing me, you just

You want to see my spirit dissipate
You want my body to disintegrate
But I refuse to just wither away
I won't succumb to this decay

You wanna defeat me
You're trying to play me
(Got me) acting like I'm crazy
But frankly
I don't want to be around this
I don't want to stand for your bullshit, no

...all the prey that you claim for the taking

I never thought I would be twisted up like this
But I know my spirit hasn't given up so I persist
And resist the urge to sit and reminisce
Of the days when you lay unawakened

My enemy, I'll keep fighting 'til you stop killing me
