So many memories stuck in my mind.
I see the universe I left behind.
Faces I knew before haunting my dreams -
There’s just no way I can avoid them, it seems!

Shaking on the floor,
The medics carried me out the door.
Nobody took a second glance at me.
What do you see?
Or do you even care?

Why can’t I seem to just push it away?
It’s time for me to release this cold painful misery.

It’s tough. Why do I have to take all these pills
to put those shakes away?
It sucks. Why won’t the sun just come out and
defend me instead of leaving me be?

I couldn’t use their help;
it wasn’t good enough,
‘cause what I needed was somebody to hold me.
I couldn’t use their help;
it wasn’t strong enough,
So there I lay and shook till they cried.

Let me down.
That’s all they did to me.
All they did was let me down.
Get me out of this town.

My will is all I need, that’s all.
My will is all I need, that’s all.
No longer will I be in your thrall.

Early in the day,
the bird catches its prey
and leaves its famished peers
to starve and wither way.
