My world is falling all around me

My world has been turned upside down

It had to come to this for a reason

I had to go through this to change

I'm just so sorry baby, you had to live it...

I'm so sorry I put you through my pain...

I'm seeing myself for the first time

and what I see... is a broken man,

a man with demons, a man without hope...

The hounds of hell are waiting...

I'm now approaching the gallows pole,

I can feel the rope...

I've come to a crossroads,

I see a wall a mile high before me,

and a thousands miles wide...

I guess it had to come to this for a reason

I had to go through this to change,

I had to go through this to change...

I had to hold that mirror

and look at the reflection staring back...

I had to look past that reflection,

and look much deeper then that...

I can see the damage I've done,

I see the hearts I've torn,

and the minds I've destroyed...

This game I called life,

It was just an illusion, a lie,

I only hope the real me is waiting inside.

These are my last words...

I'll sit in silence, until the real me,

if there is, breaks through...
