I am the walking dead heartbreaker... my apologies...
I'm happy you'll never understand...
What it's like to be... trapped under six feet of...
Solid glass... I can see out, but no one gets in...

Screaming at the prison...
I've locked myself into..
I'm sorry that I'm still breathing...
And that I'll Kill again...

But the loneliness is too much... for me to handle.
The taste of fresh blood... pushes me on.

I.. told myself.. the con..stant pain..
Could ease..the tension... burning inside..
But the nights... were cold... and the days... dragged to weeks...
I will die... here alone... I will die..

The fear of romance.
The pain of living.
The joy of sorrow.
The strength of not forgiving.(2x)

God help me... I'm so tired...
But in my dreams... the wolves eat out my soul...
God help me... I'm so frightened...
But in my dreams... the wolves tear out my heart...

I used to be golden... a saint in a time of sorrow...
But then the turning came... and I kissed the sun goodbye...
Don't you get it... it's always darker in my eyes,
The screams of my brothers.. egging me on.

    Atreyu in their songs tend to talk bout vampires or vampirical themes.. this song is no different, but also in every song there is a hidden undertone.. In this one its love and misery..

    Hes sorry hes a vampire, the pain and loneliness is unbearable, yet so is the thirst for blood to end the parch in his throat. He may never fall in love, for fear of killing the one he cares about, and realy, he cannot be near any human. He was once wrapped in a good life, and now he is burning inside w/ sadness. Hes not bad, he doesnt want to hurt any1, he just doesnt want to hurt alone. He cant get relief, enemy wolves tear at his dreams,and he knows that not only is he the heartbroken, but heartbreaker
