The clock tick so fast;
I feel my life ooze out.
I had to walk;
To make a shout.

I screwed it all;
It’s me, I know.
I walk on broken glass,
As I see you go.

I feel insecure;
A threat looms on me,
Like a ghost,
That only I can feel.

Come and rip my soul;
I need no mercy.
Pierce my heart,
And peel my skin.

Prove me wrong,
Knock my door;
Say it was my fault,
And pull me close.

I’m suffocating,
And I can’t breathe.
I feel a burning ache,
Oh save me please!

I can’t live like this;
I can’t be the one you want me to be.
I can’t make a deal;
I remember the time we used to be so happy.

I’m stuck in a masquerade;
I don’t want to be so lonely.
If that is just a lie,
It’s where I want to live.
