Maricon Puto
Coal Chamber Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Let down through the breakthrough
I travel as I hunger for the darkness below me
When I'm praying for the light above
To save this soul inside me
Should I? Would I? Could I?
Outcast from my own kind never knowing
Soaring through my own mind never knowing
How could they live with what their doing
Twist of my spine
Oh God fuck
I don't get it
Breathe with me
Just breathe with me
It's up to me as I hunger
Lay slow and still as I wonder
Pray for darkness down in this hollow
But I try to grope
It's up to me as I sleep again
My body lays down as I holler




It's all inside but I confess in me
I like me
