lyrics

Where are you?

I'm losing sight in myself
All these lights are reflecting
Going through pyramids,
Distorting all colors now

They're tricking me with their shadows,
They're tricking me with their shadows.

I always saw this coming
But refused to take notice
That my solitude is a prescribed drug
That feeds my addiction

It makes the shadows,
resemble exacatly what I'm missing
It's not what I want, but It's what I need
And it's always the same thing.

It's been two years since the end
And I can't feel anything at all now
It's like a faulting nervous system
I touch but can't feel at all

They're morphing and changing
I can't help to feel your speaking to me
Are you speaking to me?

They're morphing and changing
They're more distinct and I can
Swear it's your shadow
Speak to me, Speak to me

I can't feel at all.

These thoughts, are the echo of a voice I should hear
But they dance in the headlights
I can hear your voice searching for something,
I'm searching for something myself

Cause I'm lost,
God I'm so lost
My eyes are backwards and my mind is dark
As the rain that fell that night
Behind black shades,

In the form of tears above your gravestone
All my fears hit me in that instant
As the blank faces around reflected myself like a mirror showing every drought-like crack,

Cause her body was taken away
And that same day I parted my own
Now I can't find the spark to this life,
No I can't find a reason to live

No reason,

I can't find meaning in anything
I can't find reason in anyone
I can't find meaning,
I can't find reason

The bell jar's falling on me.

Dear hope,
Can you hear me?
Dear hope,
Can you hear me?

You me me in my sorrow and redeemed all I had left
Until the sea separated everything like the sunsets in our heads
But the cancer in your chest refused the blood to reach your heart
And not a single day goes by I don't completely fall apart

I'm alone

Black thoughts, my mind was plagued
By the only light I knew,
Spilling out of me in so many colors I never had a chance
To calculate the rate of my sanity failing me day by day
So hope I call you one last time
To give me a sign or the end is mine

Breathe in slowly I'm right here
