lyrics

Well it’s been a long time
Since I last talked to you
I’d like to think that we were done and that our conversation’s through.
Yet still I can’t deny it
When every sleepless night
I feel the ghosts around me, pulling the rope against my neck so tight.

Everytime, I think I’ve walked away
I come right back, to where I’m standing here today
Broken and wrecked, rotting from the inside out
A total mess, and I can’t deny it now.

Well I’m still sick
And I won’t quit
Falling apart until I die, or until I find a way to live this life.
And I’m still sick
But I won’t quit
Even though it’s been too long, gotta find a final way to right this wrong.

Rubbing elbows with strangers
Out on the street
I can’t help but wonder why they seem to think that everything’s complete.
Can I be the only one who feels
Disconnected and half alive?
I’d like to think that I’m not alone, that there’s others out there, but there’s no one out there.

And I’m still seeing darkly every time.
It’s hard to kick habits ingrained in a brainwashed mind.
They say that someday we’ll see face to face
And I hope that that’s the case
Cause until then I can’t fool myself that I’m not lost inside this place.

Well I’m still sick
And I won’t quit
Falling apart until I die, or until I find a way to live this life.
And I’m still sick
But I won’t quit
Even though it’s been too long, gotta find a final way to right this wrong.

Cause in the autumn twilight
And in the long dark winter night
I still hope to hear that calling sound.
And in the pitchest black I
Yearn to find my way back
If I’m lost then somehow I’ll be found.
