These scars will always be a part of me

Just as much as you will forever be

I still try to escape & people still ask me why

The answer's simply this

I'm trying to escape from this because it's all I can do

To keep from feeling as incomplete as I do

I'm trying to escape from the truth

And I can't know if I'll ever stop

I can't even bring myself to admit what this truth really is

Because I can't stand the thought of how you were taken

There's not much I remember since the day they told me about it

About what happened that October night

The light vanished from my sky when I heard how you'd been taken

I'm trying to escape from the truth

And I can't know if I'll ever stop

I can't even bring myself to admit what this truth really is

Because I can't stand the thought of how you were taken

I've heard so much about that night

So much more than I could ever handle hearing

And I can't know how much more I could take knowing

When I know what happened at the end of that night

I'm trying to escape from the truth

And I can't know if I'll ever stop

I can't even bring myself to admit what this truth really is

Because I can't stand the thought of how you were taken
