I don’t know what you are but I’m afraid.
I should be running far away.
But I can’t help but feel you pull me in.
I’m nothing I’m just your victim.

The Dark is enticing like the day used to be.
The sun holds now no interest for me.
I prefer the stars to a morning light.
Welcome me, my perfect night.

This monster that I’m turning into.
This poison, I got it from you.
My life has become my own lie.
I’m not living, I just survive.

I close my eyes, pretend to die.
I’m ready to return this life.
My heart’s ocean is too shallow,
I wish to be one with the shadows.

Even though I realize,
I didn’t love, that was a lie.
It’s something I’m immune to,
Something I’m unable to do.

My heart is black and cold as ice,
Darkness is my only life.
If I do not love, I can’t get hurt.
If I play with fire, I will get burnt.

I’ll refuse to love anyone,
I hope my feelings turn to none.
That way, I can’t feel regret
Nothing in my heart, it’s all in my head.

That’s the way I’m going to be,
I love no one and no one loves me.
It’s not living, but I’ll survive,
I’ll be fine because I’m Not Alive.
