Crucified in Time

I lay spread out in pain
The nail gun falls from reach
My hands and feet are tied
As a lesson she would teach

I want to control time
And turn it back one week
I could have saved us both from pain
But now I've been left meek

What have I destroyed?
All I have known
Falls away in a burning flash
As my flesh is stripped from bone

And now you're gone for good
As my empire rusts
You have built again
I've returned to dust

I broke all I had sworn
To try to find my way
Away from what I thought was pain
But now everything's gray

I want to try to heal
I want a better life
But this regret is too much
Maybe it would be better if I died?

Look what I've become
I haven't grown
Still this suicidal wreck
Who keeps destroying all his homes

The guilt has consumed me
And I want to truly be free
But I cannot escape
Death's awaiting me
