Start the system, Look at the time,
Get no signal, Cross the line,
Your hopes and dreams, Across the screen,
Nothing written, Nothing seen,
Awaiting comments, Words and thoughts,
Beneath the skin, Left within,
No opinions, No remorse,
Taking solace, In others thoughts.
It's all in focus becoming clear,
Erasing faces nothing left here,
Your eyes are empty shell for a heart,
Erasing faces so far apart.
First you breathe, then you swallow,
All your mistakes, Leave you hollow,
Trying so hard, Just can't find,
You're on the ground, You're out of time,
Anger seeping, Into your head,
Spinning round, What others said,
It has no meaning, You do not know,
What you just said, Is just for show.
You just can't find what you're looking for,
You'll never know there is no more,
In the distance you think you see,
How you used to, who you could be.
It's all a game when you're inside,
It doesn't matter enjoy the ride,
Taking pictures of a life,
You cannot live you cannot hide.
