Heart of fear, heart of nothing... will you ever give me peace?
Man of hate, man of sorrow... will you ever yearn for more?
this feeling of going nowhere is stuck between my eyes
I strain to see it, I strain to touch..
but far overpowers and drives me home
The driveway is dark... old & rusty like that of my tears
I feel the air enter my lungs... the pain is overwhelming,
each cough is pointless
each effort to catch the next breath is lost.
So what is it? what is it that makes me stay?
What memory am I holding onto? What figure has me chained?
I know I'm fading... but I can't leave... "no, not now"
the air has my heart, the numbness takes over
All could be different,
all could be sane...
but the fear inbetween my eyes, the dying heart-beat...
is all that is real, is all I want today...
To step out now is madness,
this pain is my friend... it knows me so very well
to leave it, to forget it... I long to but cannot
For I cannot leave my friend
I cannot leave my exile... my heart.
It runs through my veins, cut me open & feel the blackness that has me
feel the cry of emptiness, feel the cry of nothing...
Watch the blood fall from my lips... look as it spells out a memory...
of someone I knew but forgot
someone who saw but won't talk...
"I think I remember you..." my voice fades with the wind
"Weren't you the one who fell?
Weren't you the one that said all is well?
Where are you now?
I think I lost your picture,
I think I lost your love...
Stored away somewhere in the back,
Stored with all I choose to forget...
Wait... I think your smile is coming back to me again
your laugh... ah yes.. your laugh
the one piece of the puzzle I wont' forget,
the one treasure I hold tight to my chest...
yes... the one pill that eases my day."
My plague, My love
My hate, My joy... they all form the picture of you...
My bitter-sweet best friend
