"Now climb inside of me", "Leave me alone forever"
We don't forget just how that feels
Everything ends, something else begins
We watch it turning more unreal
I say "I can't keep up" as I am slowing pace to let it go
To be alone with all i know:
I know I burned so many chances
I know I'll blame the circumstances
I know that I'll believe that til I can't
Today I can't

Body just a failing cage now, this soul is ready to fly
If there's nothing after, what a sick joke it all was
Better write another chapter, something more than the best way to die
If my words don't run out before time does

Does nothing thrill you anymore, nothing at all?
Solitude does now, now and then
But lately even disappearing is starting to grow old and weary
Not that that could ever reach its end
I just can't care if anyone connects with me ever again
Troubles masquerade as friends
Half the time I do believe that
Half the time I'm lying to us
Always with the feeling that they've all moved on without me where I can't

Body just a failing cage now, this soul is ready to fly
If there's nothing after, what a sick joke it all was
Better write another chapter, something more than the best way to die
If my words don't run out before time does

Pride and hope, what's it matter? Does it last?
Widen scope, insignificant so fast
All we do, was it something that we meant?
Something true, how else would our time be spent?
