Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
I've made the change,
I wont see you tonight

Sorrow sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and loved

It's building up inside of me
A place so dark, so cold, I had to set me free
Don't mourn for me,
You're not the one to place the blame
As bottles call my name
I won't see you tonight

Sorrow sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and most of all I loved
But I can't see myself that way
Please don't forget me, or cry while I'm away


Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
But I've made the change,
I wont see you tonight

(So far away, I'm gone
Please don't follow me tonight
And while I'm gone, everything will be alright)

No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight [x2]

    its about their former bass player Justin sane (justin meacham i think) suffered from depression, and wrote this suicide note. He tried killing himself with cough syrup, and failed to do so. Part 2 is about why he shouldnt have done it. and what it would of been like without it.

    He spent about 3 months in a mental institution. "when he got out is was like he was always on acid"-m shadows. it was to the point where the band just couldnt take it anymore. so Justin had to go.

    a very song about a7x's first bassist. and i like how they put a 5min silence on the end of it in memory of him.

    in my opinion you should never judge a7x by reading their bio's, because it says stuff about m.shadows being really violent and worshiping the devil etc... and about the rev getting expelled from 2 schools and constantly getting arrested. if you just read that then you'd think they just a bunch careless dicks. but this song proves that wrong.

    This song reminds me of exactly how my Dad died. Everything he felt and went through that night. He drank himself to death... Just listening to the lyrics..reminds me of something he would have said if he could.

    This first part reminds me of my 2 best friends who killed themselves after coming home from iraq ... And part 2 is how i felt... Now i find myself back at part 1... This song shows the dual reality of suicide...
