  • Is this life, this silent hurting
    This way of hiding, life averting
    Living lies that never please
    Losing dreams upon a breeze
    Watching sunlight ever fading
    Pain for numbness, always trading

    Is this life, this black hole forming
    Chaos lost in fury storming
    Hatred screaming out at night
    Shadows stealing from the light
    Seeping death forever growing
    Always creeping, always flowing

    Is this life, this barely breathing
    Pain and turmoil, always seething
    Caught within the devil's snare
    Heart ripped open left so bare
    Feel the pain ever burning
    Ripping souls out in its churning

    Is this life, this never feeling
    Always bowing, always kneeling
    Fit for one thing; that's their slave
    This isn't life this living grave
    Feel the chains, clanking, clinking
    Stupid girl what were you thinking

    Is this life, this slowly dying
    No more tears so no more crying
    No more person no more soul
    In the end they've reached their goal
    It was death that they were giving
    It was never life, and never living
