Lyrics


Life, it seems, will fade away

Drifting further every day

Getting lost within myself

Nothing matters, no one else


I have lost the will to live

Simply nothing more to give

There is nothing more for me

Need the end to set me free


Things not what they used to be

Missing one inside of me

Deathly lost, this can't be real

Cannot stand this hell I feel


Emptiness is filling me

To the point of agony

Growing darkness taking dawn

I was me, but now he's gone


No one but me can save myself, but it's too late

Now I can't think, think why I should even try


Yesterday seems as though it never existed

Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

Goodbye
