It's stranger than fiction, how you've decayed
It must be so lonely, lost within your ways

You're born alone, you die alone
The rest is yours to fill the gap
The world goes on, without you here
Adjust or just collapse

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

By yourself
By yourself
By yourself

Verbal grenades, you throw in vain
I can't believe you'd stoop so low
Of all the things, you took away
I miss my mind the most

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

By yourself
By yourself
By yourself

(Solo)

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

Is this what you wanted to be?
Alone standing by yourself
Is this all you wanted to be?
Or was that a cry for help?

It's stranger than fiction, how you've decayed
It must be so lonely, lost within your ways

    This song is in the perspective of personna. In the mind of Ivan he is question the actions of the person he is telling this to. And it's sad to see them in their own misery. It just seems so weird for someone to collapse withing themselves. And he questions them trying to get answer out. He clearly tried to help this person but they couldn't.
