Skillet – Fingernails

Fingernails

Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails.
Under my fingernails.

I'm empty, lonely and accused,
Accused without a word.
My fingernails are chipping down
From clawing in the dirt.
I'm so lost, lost and confused,
I threw it all away.
How can I be beautiful
When I am so afraid?

Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails.
All my dreams out of reach
Under my fingernails.

I watched it all slip through my hands,
My brokenness revealed.
I'm so proud, I'm so proud,
I'm crying to be filled.
I'm killing, destroying the plague
That's killing me away.
I've got to live, I've got to love
Like I am unafraid.

Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails.
Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails.
All my dreams out of reach
Under my fingernails.

I'm wasting,
Wasting every moment.
I want to be tasting,
Tasting every moment with you.
I'm suffering, I'm bleeding, on my knees.
Who's going to save me?
Suffering, bleeding
Save me from this pit of frailty.

Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails.
Never reaching what I want to reach.
Never being who I want to be.
Blaming me when I fall and fail.
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails.
All my dreams out of reach
Under my fingernails.

Never reaching me!
