I have fallen in to darkness
Night has eluded my being
I search for a light in the shadows
I have on no one to lean

There is nothing left
I am frozen inside
I am all alone now
In no one can I confide

They say I am nothing
I tend to agree
There is nothing left for me
I will cease to be free

Nothing can save me now
Despair is all I know
The blame is solely mine
For I reap all that I’ve sown

My life is worthless
I don’t know why I’m still here
I wish I could leave
What’s keeping me is fear

No one can save me
I need to save myself
I thought I was strong
I guess I thought wrong
