I'm lost! I can't think, I can't feel, I can't breathe. I can only welcome the darkness. Where are you, my old friend? This is surely the end because I can't continue.

Why must time push me forward, slamming down into a future I don't want? I want to run, but I can't escape this bully. And I refuse to face it!

I will lay here in the dark until it's all gone. Till my soul withers. Till my body rots away. Till there's nothing left to hold the pain. I will stay!

I will hide here in my disillusioned reality where I will find nothing. No more pain. No more heartache. Till there's nothing left to hold on to. I will hide!

I will sleep past the end of time, searching my dreams. Till I find what I want. Till I find what I need. Till there's nothing left to find except peace. I will sleep!
