If I showed my hand shaking like a leaf
You might not understand, but I bet you'll believe
The spiders inside, crawling around
The cobwebs in my mind, that I tried to drown out

You said I look like a ghost, man I almost was
You said need to let go, quit chasing that bus
That picture in time, frozen like ice
Cycles keep repeating
Beating me down to size

Well maybe I'm blind, just throwing darts in the dark
I didn't get what I want, I got what I need
Man it hurts like hell, down here on my knees
Is this where I end, or is this where we begin?

The night is my friend I blend in with the best
The vampires the crooks the villains and the rest
Now we can pretend that we really care less
And act like we love, what we really detest

Maybe I'm blind, just throwing darts in the dark
I didn't get what I want, I got what I need
Man it hurts like hell, down here on my knees
Is this where I end, or is this where we begin?

Make this go away, I'm begging please
This little life left, if only to bleed
Is this where I end, or is this where we begin?

I'm looking up, but I'm feeling down
Since cutting these corners is cutting me down to size

Am I losing control, losing my mind
I know for a fact I'm losing my last place to hide

Well maybe I'm blind, just throwing darts in the dark
I didn't get what I want, I got what I need
Man it hurts like hell, down here on my knees
Is this where I end, or is this where we begin?

My pulse is racing
I can't catch my breath this near life experience scared me to death
Is this where I end, or is this where we begin?

Oh is this where we begin?
