The day begins to mock me
As I sleep tangled in the sheets of my bed
The world calls me into reality
And I sleepwalk feeling dead
Everywhere I go, life is the same
Full of mourning, black and pain
A dirge of death, the song of the corpses
Screaming voices of the slain
I can hear them calling me
They're beckoning, dancing around me
I was lost and crying for help
And the wailing spirits found me
So I'm crying for you
I'm dying for you
I need for you
I bleed for you

I am so imperfect
So reminiscent of something beautiful
But I am nothing to you
And I understand why

Because I'll drag you down into my scarlet regret
I'll drown you in my blood, and make you forget
That I was once something beautiful and tame
I was once someone worth giving a name
Now I'm anonymous and wild like a waterfall
Even the granite boulders shy from my rage
Now I'm stormy and untame like a waterfall
But eventually the waterfall will change
Into a peaceful river flowing quietly to the ocean, to the sea
You left my red waterfall and I fell down
The angels found me
And led me quietly to the sea
I'm flowing quietly to the sea

I tried to get close to you
But the darkness surrounding me forbade
Reality tried to scar me
But I did it myself with a blade
Because I was never good enough
Useless and a little unwise
I was the fool on the clouds above
Lost in dreams and lies
But the monsters of deficiency
They blemished and haunted me
I can still see them behind me
They stalked me, they taunted me
So I screamed for you
I dreamed for you
I learnt for you
I burnt for you

I am so inadequate
Such a relic of misplaced nostalgia
But I am nothing to you
And I know why

Because I'll drag you down into my scarlet regret
I'll drown you in my blood, and make you forget
That I was once something beautiful and tame
I was once someone worth giving a name
Now I'm anonymous and wild like a waterfall
Even the granite boulders shy from my rage
Now I'm stormy and untame like a waterfall
But eventually the waterfall will change
Into a peaceful river flowing quietly to the ocean, to the sea
You left my red waterfall and I fell down
The angels found me
And led me quietly to the sea
I'm flowing quietly to the sea

I am so inadequate
So imperfect
I am the wild waterfall tamed by the sea
The waterfall tamed by the sea
