And asylum's become
Some immortality
I can't bear to look back
I can't go onward
Everything I have done
Seems to suffocate me
As the night it draws in
I feel quite worthless
I don't hesitate now
As I return to the old
I press the screwdriver down
And try to burn out

All that I have yet said
Meant so little to you
And if I tell you I'm numb
Does that mean something?

Damaged and vulnerable
I wait for the end
At least I have my books
And my drastic measures
