Once upon a time, this memory, it wasn't mine
I could brush away the devil's hand
If you could crack open darkness in my mind
you'd unleash it on the world

Dying one minute at a time
By my own will I am blind
A shallow breath, a constant stare, a blank expression on my face
The weakness, the sorrow, beneath my gaze.

You will bring me to the point of
Numbness, I will cease to exist

Your hands, under guise of "helping"
will be stained with our blood
spare you conscience the guilt and grieving
and let me die alone
There is a dark, foreboding nightmare
Imprinted on my eyes
Just to blink will awaken my demons
To tear away my disguise

Endless sessions, across from my "peers"
Deepest depression, willful end is near
A shower of bastards, the lot of you
Keep your hands off, keep your heads turned away.

Distorted perception; reality
Contortion of my insides
Fuse lights the burning intensity
Unending feelings of apathy
