This desolate road seems forever long And my worn feet will carry me through the ruin All alone, but if you had heard my song You might just understand why I’m doing Maybe I’m the strongest person of us all Maybe you’re used to me being alone But that doesn’t mean that when I take a fall I can survive, live on my own
Noticing someone else’s suffering is hard Wrapped up in your troubles, with an aching heart But if you open your eyes, you’ll see a man apart If you can call me a man, I guess
Walking round with an unchanged expression Ducking and keeping away from the deed You might think it’s all to get attention And you’re right, but that’s what I need I knew a group of people whom my heart held dear I loved them, and I love them still But they weren’t there for me in my time of fear Now I’m not gonna bend my will
How many days of quiet can I keep? How many hours can I lay and dream? How long can I hide away and weep? Before you realise I’m not at best
So it’s time to say fare thee well Don’t know where I’m strolling in my daze to Just gonna follow my path down the well See if it’s someplace new So I’ve thought it through and through again No pleading will make me change my head Maybe, before, if I had a friend But now, it’s too late to hear what I’ve said
The love I have for you will always burn But my back’s to you, and I’ll always turn If you haven’t figured it out, you’ll never learn I want a hug, but I’m drowning in my sleepiness
Essentially a suicide note in the form of Bob Dylan style poetry.
