Am I strong enough to stay by your side?
I am so lost in the void of life
Everything that’s gone
Everything that comes
Will we get through the storm that never ends?

Stepping aside to live
Breaking apart to manage
Bowing for a chance to breathe
To remain and return

Fearing the mist arising
Fighting our ghosts despising
Awaiting the end
To escape and return

Where souls are lost in light
Where darkness holds our lies
I’ll keep our wounds in sight
I’ll go through plague and die

Through gates of hell I walk
Through countless surrenders
Until I’m torn apart
And leave forever

Life is no gift I know
Should I fall for more?
I escaped past
To become a ghost
I’m not here to serve
I’m not here to beg
There’s no end to the path of broken glass

Crawling through thorns to hide
Crowning the fools to hold on
Failing the loved ones
To remain and return

Going insane to run
Collecting the fear to manage
To stay on my path
To escape and return
