lyrics

With my eyes open wide
To this dull reality
For the first time in my whole life
I could truly see

It was like a cold blade
Murderin' me,
Piercing my own flesh
My awakening

Though once I believed
Life was worth being lived
Now I comprehend
Everything is rotten in the end

For a lifetime I've been living an illusion
But my heart has been stabbed too many times
The betrayals I have suffered almost killed me
And they slowly crushed the trick of life
What's left of me is only ash

Now the Veil is Ripped
Finally I realize
I have always been
Walking in a graveyard
Crowded by shadows
Of people like me

Empty shells surround me
With narrow dreams
Could this limbo of sorrow
Be real life?

Alienation is the abyss
That severs us from each other
Now I comprehend
Everything is rotten in the end

For a lifetime I've been living an illusion
But my heart has been stabbed too many times
The betrayals I have suffered almost killed me
And they slowly crushed the trick of life
What's left of me is only ash

They took everything from me
In a slimy hell I drown
Among the ruins of a dream

My heart's as empty as yours
Wanderin' with deceitful eyes
I'm an empty shell like you

I'm the shadow of myself
Stranded on a sea of alienation
What's left of me is only ash

Gaze
I just gaze
Lying on the ground I gaze
Staring at empty space
Lying on the ground I gaze
Staring at my ruins
