V1:

And so it is again

Sadness, my only friend

The world revolves for nothing

Faces smile, I collapse inside

Tears and cheeks collide

Perhaps it would be better if I met my end

Because the dead don't cry

C:

Held together by string and hope

The knots are coming undone

Pieces are slowly drifting apart

As I tumble to the ground

V2:

And so it will always be

My partner, hollow misery

The sun shines down for nothing

People laugh, I collapse inside

Blade and skin collide

It would have to be better if I met my end

Because the dead don't cry

C:

Held together by string and hope

The knots are coming undone

Pieces are slowly drifting apart

As I tumble to the ground

B:

Like a house of cards on a slanted table

A mansion built on the sand

Modern marvels, ancient mistakes

Never to be seen again

Just like me

I've lost the will to carry on

I feel myself burn down to ashes

Scattering until the wind is gone

C:

Once held together by string and hope

The knots came undone

Pieces slowly drifted apart

As I tumbled to the ground

It should have been by doubt and rope

The knots would have stayed

But all the pieces drifted apart

Never again to be found
