tears are dripping from my clocks
time is ticking monotonous reveries
save me from my twilight
knowing I've lied
knowing all I am is breaking me
your aching heart compels me to cowardice
my sorrowful thoughts dance in monochrome revelries
in weary terror dulled by repetition
cutting me deep in lines
in gravel rashes up my arms
along my skin in marks unseen
by any eyes but mine
and in between each strike i shiver
cower, wait for this nights cloud to pass me by
this nights tears to shed themselves
i know this nightmare never ends
this endurance race is forever
and still i'll smile and you won't know
i'll cry in tears invisible
i'll scream my pain so you can't hear
to keep the sadness from your eyes
to keep the sadness from your life
to keep your joy intact
