I’ve lost it all
Memories choke the breath that dies to cry for help
Into silence I've become
No one saves me from the wounded heart within
Under the shadow of dawn
Dark clouds above chase the light away
I’ve become desolate
Hidden by betrayal
I hear metal against metal as the nail drives
The Current of loneliness pulls me under
Underpasses become your safe haven
Shivering as if locked in a morgue
Turning your collar to the cold damp world
Empty streets whisper lonely lullabies
Alleyways cast haunting memories of lonely deaths
Filthy needles lay bare their forced injections
Matted hair, smeared makeup, tell the tales...
The wind chases away haunted screams
As your flesh bleeds for its next desire.
Your voice taunts this shattered mind
I have lost the will to live
Through your death, you left me abandoned.
