lyrics

Consuming fear and pain
loathing oneself
Welcoming release from this emptiness
Here I stand contemplating my end
This bleak existence crushes me slowly
breathing becomes my struggle
Life has become my burden

What have I done
To merit this life
Born into misery
What reason
Have I
to continue?
I’ve lived
all of my years
with facade
in place
hiding the pain

The truth trapped within
The pain only grows, stronger through the lies
Full of contempt
I hate what I am
My life is pain

I do not take it lightly
Is there any reason that I should stay?
Some speak of consequences
I fear not these things

Why should I fear the end of my suffering
This is my decision
and mine alone
How could anyone understand this?
this pain is mine and mine alone

There is no reason to believe
This miserable existence
has any shred of meaning

Why should I fear the end of my suffering
This is my decision
and mine alone
How could anyone understand this?
this pain is mine and mine alone

Without meaning how can it be of value?
In the end nothing is lost
Wiped from the page
Soon to fade into obscurity
My actions are mine
And I will face the consequences

Continuing on this path
leads only to more pain
If life means nothing
Then what is my crime?

My cause is just
and my decision seems clear
I will release myself
from the shackles
of my living hell

I will do what I must
To fight this emptiness
in any way that I can
To end this pain I will do
whatever I must

I
Cannot go on
I must end this
Resolute, in this decision
I
Will take
I will take control
It’s my life, to end
I
Welcome
Welcome the end
With open arms
I
Welcome
Welcome the end
With open arms

I
Can not
Go on
I
Must end this
I
Welcome
The end
with open arms
Soon
I will
find
Peace
in death
Soon
I will
find
Peace
in death

Now the time has come
I will take action now
The time for words is gone
I seek to end my pain

I climb with rope in hand
Ready for the end
Overwhelming joy
Engulfs my heart now

The end so very near
Soon to embrace the end
Death has come to free me

Soon it will be done
My life will end by my hand
And I will be free

Now the time has come
I will take action now
The time for words is gone
I seek to end my pain

I climb with rope in hand
Ready for the end
Overwhelming joy
Engulfs my heart now

Tie the rope tight
I must ensure this works
For I can not endure
Another day of hell

Noose around my neck
Tightening ever so slowly
Burning in my throat
Breath escaping me

Life
Drains from me
My last breath escapes me
Reflecting
I
lost my
only
Possession
