Dead Inside Lyrics

3. Dead Inside
The mirror reflects a shattered man
Afflicted by poisonous bile
Ravaged by hidden scars
Empty eyes stare back at me
It’s time to harvest the seeds of discontent that I have sown
Failing to heed a skewed perception
I am my own worst foe
I grieve for the life that I once cherished
My only friends are pain and woe
So I must swallow this bitter pill
As I’m devoured by sorrow
This bed I have made I must lie in
The ravens return to roost
I can’t take it any more
Nailed to the cross that I bear
No martyr, but a wretched fool
I can’t take it any more
With bitterness and blame, I decry my self-pity
With anger and disgust, I vilify my weakness
Strangely detached, I despise what I’ve become
A broken man with nothing left to live for
Lost to me, everyone that I hold dear
Forsaken as they turn their backs
So quiet
The silence is deafening
So cold
Emptiness all consuming
With bitterness and blame, I decry my self-pity
With anger and disgust, I vilify my weakness
Strangely detached, I despise what I’ve become
A broken man with nothing left to live for
These demons I face on my own
Why must I face them alone?
Long have I borne this crippling burden
Misery is all I feel
I will not speak of my torment
Anguish laid bare for all to see
Look into my eyes
You’ll see I’m dead inside
