the world cries
I drop the razor blade
my hand trembles as you touch my face
caught me blood red handed
so guilty... so guilty...
...swing the gavel

I know there's no escape
from what I've done
these cuts are deep
these cuts are mine
...I own them...
these scars speak for me
every word comes from their lips
...sweet ...sweet as wine

I know... I know...
...I know ...I know...
just shut up please

the stranger in the mirror
with the empty green eyes
is this who I've become
wearing a mask of lies

and I try to tell another
but my voice is weak
my throat is dry
I cough up dust
trying to scream
don't you... don't you hear me
just listen... just listen...

sit there with a pen and paper
and I'll tell you everything
how I was born a man
made of porcelain

can't hold my tongue
but I just can't speak
tell me why I'm still alive
why I feel sick inside
why I'm so tired but never sleep
...tell me tell me...
...tell me nothing...

silence is poison
and I'm dying
each day each minute
a piece of me fades away
soon I'll be a skeleton
...just a shell

your words echo in my ears
you were right there
now you're so far from home...

I don't know
...why the stars weep
I don't know
...why the sun bleeds
I don't know
...why the wind screams
I don't know anything
...but lies... lies...

lies told to children...
lies told to lovers...
lies told to haters...
lies told to God...

now I know I don't know
and I know I'm empty
and hollow and without meaning
and I know I'll never amount to anything

I'm just another sick patient
with an incurable disease
and there's just no hope for me...

~ Brandan Michael.
