On the forest's edge into sparkling eyes I gaze.
What I see before me is a reflection of my soul.
This lone wanderer and I sharing this moment of spiritual connection.

Lost
I DON’T WANT ANYTHING
I JUST WANT
TO BE LEFT ALONE

I RESENT THAT YOU CARE

LET ME GO AND
TURN YOUR BACK ON ME
SO I CAN FIND MY PEACE

I DON’T WANT TO HURT YOU

BUT IT’S AWFUL HARD
NOT TO GET YOU CAUGHT
IN MY CROSSFIRE OF PAIN

SO LEAVE ME ALONE

YOU’LL BE BETTER OFF
NOT WORRYING ABOUT ME

AND I’LL BE BETTER OFF
NOT HAVING TO RESTRAIN MY URGES
FOR YOUR SAKE

I COULD FINALLY MELT INTO MY ILLNESS
DRIPPING INTO ONE ANOTHER
UNTIL I’M UNRECOGNIZABLE

LET

ME

GO

PLEASE

YOU’D BEST BE ON YOUR WAY
OFF IN A SEPARATE DIRECTION
TOWARD BETTER THINGS AND PEOPLE

BECAUSE I AM TIRED OF FIGHTING
SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU KNOW
AND I’D LIKE TO REST SOON

Welcome to Darkness.
Welcome to this abyss.
Here there is no light.
Here emptyness is found.
Welcome to the freezing cold.
Welcome to my home.

Blank stare.
Pale skin.
Getting away from here.
Dead within.
Not a single care.
No chance to win.
Too much to bare.
Ready to cave in.
Conditions so rare.
Can't get a description.

I had a date with death,
And I'm still single.

I just gave a jagged grin,
And death walked out the door.

They left me behind,
I guess even death runs in fear.

Lost in abnormality,
Lost in this so called reality.

One in suffering,
One in thought.

Sent away from light,
Sent back to the night.

Take it all away,
Take a life today.

Can you hear them,
The voices of the night?

Can you see them,
The shadows just out of sight?

Can you smell them,
The scent of dying light?

Can you feel them,
The touch of spite?

Can you taste them,
The flavor of fright?
