The Downward Spiral: Save Us From Ourselves
Music: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook/B. Soares
Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook

All these years go by
I see my life so high, a passed down memory
Life before, I live the dream
My own suffering
Should I do anything?
A view of hopelessness
A product of my carelessness

My fears, despair, consume me
Save me, save us from ourselves
My mind is free, abuse me
Save me, save us from ourselves
Ourselves, ourselves

Aware of what I see
I choose to let it be a disconnected way
Still I wait for them to say
Waiting patiently
For the change in me
But will I ever be
Rid of this complacency?

My fears, despair, consume me
Save me, save us from ourselves
My mind is free, abuse me
Save me, save us from ourselves
Ourselves, ourselves

Now, I can see – there will never be an end to this
How can I be so mindless to the lack of consciousness?
Fight or flight – never caring of the end in sight
We must need adrenaline to purge the fear we always fight

A downward spiral (x4)

My fears, despair, consume me
Save me, save us from ourselves
My mind is free, abuse me
Save me, save us from ourselves
Ourselves, ourselves
