Life it seems to fade away
Getting lost within myself
I have lost the will to live
There is nothing more for me

Missing one inside of me
Cannot stand this hell I feel
To the point of agony
I was me but now, he's gone
No one but me can save myself, but its too late

Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
