A tear here, a tear there
In the darkness of my soul is where I cry
No where else is safe as I am locked away
Piece by piece my life is taken away
With every bruise, with every scar
Comes a terrible memory

They see nothing wrong
With wasting a young child's life
They think they are superior
They think that I am ready to go
If my heart would only speak
If only my soul would ease

Darkness in every corner
No ray of hope coming through
Soul weighing heavy, I start to feel my life go
Should I hang on to endure more pain
Or should I let go and fly free?

A tear for the pain I feel
A tear for the life I lived
A tear for the life I never had
A tear for the life I wish I had
A tear for the coming events
A tear for every minute I last

How long will my soul cry?
How long will I stand for the pain?
How long before I am realized?
When will I be free from my crying soul?
When will I get the chance to breathe?
When will I get the chance to be reborn?
