Life Behind These Eyes

Sitting in dark corners

Crying deepest sorrow

Friends, once named, forgotten

Today becomes tomorrow

Help with dark intentions

Nothing offered freely

Caring with their conscience

Without feeling, really


Falling below ground,

Keep my head above

Grasping my defense

They don't know how to live life behind these eyes

Eyes withhold the teardrops

Bleeding without crying

Naught is held together

Living without trying

Scraping and not bleeding

Exhausting every method

Eyes cannot look upward

Feel completely wretched

Where are you companions?

All are disappearing

And among the shadows

Everything's worth fearing

Need someone's arms reaching

Crave another's touch

Any embrace for shelter

Isn't demanding much
