Lyrics

In the back of the beyond, from one eye of a storm to another
A cavernous unknown, for the seeds of survival we search
I muscle and man up coz every bone in my body's got nowhere left
And when the strength bleeds out, it’s the hopes and the dreams that hold on

Magic Me, You kill me but I only get stronger
Magic Me, am I everything that’s wrong in this world?
Feel my secret weapon fire, from your trigger happy lies
Or give into love and save yourself
If you give into love

In crevasses of darkness, the hatred you harvest that feeds the fear
Angry, angry, whatever you might lose, whatever you've gotta prove, it has nothing to do with me
With all of your might and your slyness you vanish me and I’d disappear from view
But our enemies live within, so i sit pretty in the heart of you

Magic Me, You kill me but I only get stronger
Magic Me, am I everything that’s wrong in this world?
Feel my secret weapon fire, from your every trigger happy lie
Or give into love and save yourself
If you give into love

Send me off to space but I’m not going away
Paint me out of the picture but I’m not going away
Frame me for the blame but I’m not going away
Cover up of the century

Magic Me, You kill me but I only get stronger
Magic Me, am I everything that’s wrong in this world?
Feel my secret weapon fire, from your every trigger happy lie
Or give into love and save yourself
If you give into love and save yourself
So give into love
