lyrics

I was crippled from the blow, given to me years ago
I've yet to rise from the ash, when I burned up in my past
Water seeped into my seems, I split apart in the freeze.
Wind and gravel graze my face, my skeleton stays in its place.
No one can save the wretch not meant to last

I am the shadow on the floor, concealed beneath a brutal force
Suppression tries to snuff me out, and disregards my swelling doubt
If I could do what I wish, leave my life and become a myth
Remain alive by word of mouth, lifting up those who cannot get out
A nomad no man can resent, a heart of gold he'd give for sense.

I will not fail because you know my end is imminent
I will not give in to sadistic voices tormenting
In the night, the color spectrum fades to black and white
This absence of color does not mean there is no light

But at the end of my road, when I face the dead end sign
And I turn to hold a friend, only to find my empty side
The pain my lack of family brings, will surely drag a blade through me
And as I set I wont give up, to live and die will be enough

I will not fail because you know my end is imminent
I will not give in to sadistic voices tormenting
In the night, the color spectrum fades to black and white
This absence of color does not mean there is no light
