Parents tried to hear me, People tried to fear me
The letter I wrote said “Dear me,”
But I wouldn’t let anyone near me
Feeling like a doll nailed up against the wall
Wanting to fall, and just let go of it all
My footsteps they could not trace, blood read my face
My body was dipped in lace…. And then came the case
My mind was slipping in a hole eternity was the toll
First I lost my soul, and then I lost control
I owed my feelings debt; it was something I shouldn’t have met
The black hole became my threat, the only thing I could do is regret…
My sentence was now set
