The time has come, the end is near
The Sun's just about to set
Its time to die, yet I know no fear
And my heart feels no regret.
I look down at my blood stained hands
I stumble, drop the knife
You said you wished you knew me better?
Welcome to my life.
Nightmares that come true every night
Dreams shattered every day
Hopes crushed, with every moment
A life filled with dismay.
I'm tired of this placed I used
to call my home before
it burned down, to this pile of ashes
Can't take this hell no more.
Can you help me? I am lost.
Can you help me find the way?
The night is upon us, and I am alone,
If I ask you, will you stay?
Remember when this used to be
paradise on Earth?
Remember when each word I said
to you, held some worth?
I'm speechless now, tongue-tied for words
Though there's so much left to say
I want my answers in black and white
Yet all I see are shades of grey.
The light beckons for me to follow
Can't tell what's wrong, what's right
The world goes black around me
And then I see the flash of white.
