beneath the encasing of ashes (re-recorded medley) lyrics – as i lay dying

emptiness running through me
taking all that i am
reach inside of me
far beneath the encasing of ashes
bleeding red
still showing signs of life
leaving me this blinding mask
grasping for the wind
everything i’ve done
everything i’ve gained
it all means nothing
a mere breath has p*ssed away
sadness i embrace
left with empty promises
spent of all my strength
relying on yours
i look at myself and see the scars
that are brought to me by this life
then i ask myself
is this all that this world has to give
through this pain i refine
tearing me from within
screaming to be released but held fast by your love
i have become a sacrifice
i have become a sacrifice (a sacrifice)
in need of you (in need of you)
in need of you

/ as i lay dying lyrics
