Everybody listens, but nobody hears

My words are falling on deaf ears

Dripping from my lips and echoing in the silence

These are the moments that lead to inner violence

Lashing out because I can no longer keep it in

Whispering to the darkness because it’s my only friend

I walk this path surrounded by hollow faces

Alone against the stillness in these empty places

I’m all on my own fighting this cancer of the soul

Does anybody even know how much it’s taking its toll

It’s so alluring when you want to be gone

It’s so enticing when everything’s gone wrong

When nothing is left but this desolation

It’s easy to be seduced by the temptation

When life has become nothing more than monotony glorified

It’s easy to let the world be forgotten and turn to suicide
