lyrics

You fill my head with doubt
Your working in the ebb and the flow
You circle me with fear
I think it's time that I figured you out

Black dog you've got no teeth
Your a shadow of yourself
This night I'm laying claim to all
Light and love and perfect peace

Get behind me little feelings
That try to cause me so much harm
You're no longer needed in my head
Your thoughts on me don't belong

If you should dare return
I'll expose you to the truth
Your passive stares don't work
You should turn your tail and run

Get behind me little feelings
That try to cause me so much harm
You're no longer needed in my head
Your thoughts on me don't belong

Finally I'm glad to be alive
I'm not fighting just to breathe
I forgot what it was to see
No longer trying to survive

Get behind me little feelings
That try to cause me so much harm
You're no longer needed in my head
Your thoughts on me don't belong

You dont belong (here)
Your thoughts on me don't belong
