Original Lyrics

I don’t know what this is but it knows my every thought

And I know just how it feels to be alone without dreams

My emptiness, it slowly tears me down, violates my mind

I may never smile again

I can’t help but look at the clock

And wonder how many hours are left

Because these hours can’t pass by fast enough

Not to free me from it

Free me from its cold & practiced hands

Because these hands keep pulling me further down

And my days grow longer stretching into years

As my life fades far away from sight, yeah

As he might becomes my way of life & darkness only takes my mind

I will never smile again

Hate, so much hate, can’t undo the pain I’ve caused

To every living thing, can’t excuse why I exist at all

Constantly losing faith

And wonder how many hours are left

Because these hours can’t pass by fast enough

Not to free me from it

Free me from its cold & practiced hands

Because these hands keep pulling me further down

And my days grow longer stretching into years

As my life fades far away from sight, yeah

As he might becomes my way of life & darkness only takes my mind

Faith, losing faith, losing all my shattered dreams

As they fade down with the sun

In this world, I am just another harmless face

Another powerless face

And wonder how many hours are left

Because these hours can’t pass by fast enough

Not to free me from it

Free me from its cold & practiced hands

Because these hands keep pulling me further down

And my days grow longer stretching into years

As my life fades far away from sight, yeah

As he might becomes my way of life & darkness only takes my mind
