I'm falling again, collapsing,
Into the world you've made for me,
Where I can't feel a single thing,
But the pain from which I'll never be free.

Fallen a thousand times,
But never broken;
Committed a thousand crimes,
But never got the one token,
Of your love, of their hate,
What then am I here for?
What is my fate?
To embrace the world I abhor?

To lie a thousand lies,
To cry a sea of tears,
To live a million lives,
To eternally run from my fears,
Is there nothing more to this?
My existence, my being,
Craving for death's kiss,
Ensnared in darkness, killing
Me. Is this all there is to it?
Am I only alive to die?
To feel the agonizing ache in my spirit
Again and again, knowing I fight in vain,
Only to come alive and cry,
Knowing no one feels my pain.

Footsteps sound in the night,
Voices borne by the wind,
Will I ever be alright?
Hearing them behind,
In front, everywhere around,
How can I not scream?
This is a nightmare not a dream,
I fall but never touch the ground.
