Could there be a sunrise
Or are there none left for me
For I feel like I am
A sinking ship far out at sea

And though my mind keeps trying to cover
My questioning reality
I constantly wonder
If I will ever be free

Consuming me I'm both beast and a dove
Watching out scared of what lies above
Wide awake but nothing is seen
But my deep dark shadow

Though my words are pleasant
They are just a clashing sound
Every mouth that speaks them
Cannot find what needs to be found

Every heart will bear a secret
Mine's too heavy to hold
It all sounds like screaming
It's too loud to be controlled

I'm full of emptiness and regret
So surprised by the things I have said
Split apart by nothing
But my deep dark shadow

I'm just a shadow
No more than a shade
Empty and hollow
A blunted broken blade
What have I become
What have I made
Is there a reason
Or will I just fade

I'm just a shadow(I'm full of emptiness and regret)
No more than a shade(so surprised by the things I have said)
Empty and hollow(split apart by nothing)
A blunted broken blade(but my deep dark shadow)
What have I become(I'm full of emptiness and regret)
What have I made(so surprised by the things I have said)
Is there a reason(split apart by nothing)
Or will I just fade(but my deep dark shadow)
