"Private War"

The most alone you could ever be

Is being without yourself

To stray so far outside of you

There is no way to get back

When you're lying alone in the dark

And feel so disconnected

A blade pierces the flesh

But you're already numbed with pain

A friend says he'll be there for you

But you're too frozen to reach out

Even if you could explain

There's nothing they could do

No glue can paste together

Pieces of a broken heart

There is no needle or thread

That can sew together shreads of the torn soul

Human eyes are too blind to see

Bruises beneath the skin

Mortal ears are too deaf to hear

Screams echoing from within

Silent suffering is the worst kind of pain

Because no one can help you through

It's a private war you fight alone

And most of the time you lose
