Like I do
And I blame you"

A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I'm the queen.
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside...
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I've tried...
Don't let them in, don't let them see, be the good girl you always had to be,
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know...

Let it go, let it go, turn away and slam the door!
I don't care what they're going to say!
Let the storm rage on... the cold never bothered me anyway!

He would rip his teeth into divine flesh and swallow the universe whole.
