Weeping for days at a time

Just because he's no faith

He cannot stand on his feet

He starts to look like a wraith

And you know when things get better

They get much worse

This boy's a case in point

Electric shock's every time he closes his eyes

How could you expect him to survive

Much longer?

Every second of every minute

Is another burnout.

He's not alright

And yet he stands up for his rights

To be left on his own

To stay awake through the night

How would you like to be burned

By the way that you feel

Some crucifixion once more

And it is more than you can possibly bear.
