My dreams are killing me
And it's only getting worse
Let's call it quits
The good has come and gone

At least I'm home
Were everyone forgets my name
A warm welcome
To a place that I can't wait to leave

I never thought that I'd feel so broken
I never thought that I'd feel so hopeless

What happened to my passion?
Is this more than a fleeting feeling?

I can't breathe
Losing sleep
I've got nothing left
Do I give in?
Just give up?
It's what they expect
I'm looking for the heart
That I swear I still have
Is this as good as it gets?
I'm a mess
Such a wreck
Am I worth it yet?
You know I've fought
Tooth and nail
To make this last
I think I'm starting to see
There's hope left in me
I hope this city will sink

How can you sleep at night
With all the veils that you hide behind

I can't believe how easy abandonment can be
You worthless human being.

There is no excuse
For a waste like you

I've been forgotten
But I won't let it ruin me, no
Try to tear me down
But you'll never

You'll never see me fall
