I've been here by myself for so very long
My story bleeds like these masochistic memories
Fading memories of some place so far away
And I ask, "Why can't you stay?"

(Am I to be stuck forever?)

(Did no one consider how I would feel?)

The curtain drops on the final act
As the last bit of light disappears
Hold me close so I forget where I am

I can't seem to rise on this new day
I just don't have the strength

Cut apart and sever, so I can leave
I've got a virus in me, or could it be
That I'm really the disease?

I'll look in the mirror, to see a monster
Not who I thought I'd see
I'll close my eyes and hope when they open
The one standing there is me
