Time, standing all alone
I bled for you, I wanted to
Each drop, my own

Slowly they depart
But fall in vain like desert rain
And still they fall on and on and on

Got to get back to a reason
Got to get back to a reason, I once knew
And this late in the seasons
One by one distractions fade from view

So, drifting through the dark
The sympathy of night's mercy
Inside my heart

Is your life the same
Do ghosts cry tears, do they feel years?
As time just goes on and on and on

Got to get back to a reason
Got to get back to a reason, I once knew
And this late in the seasons
One by one, distractions fade from view

Years come around, men can be found
Following orders
Years come around, planning is sound
Promises made

Years come around, tears on the ground
Blood stains the borders
Leaders abound, chances are down
No one's been saved

Give me one reason
For this dark treason
Every chance unsaid
Turn around, all dead
What went wrong?

Give me one reason
For this dark treason
Every chance unsaid
Turn around, all dead
What went wrong?

Drink until you drown
What else can I say?
You're falling down, you seek the ground
It's never far away

Can you live your life completely in a fall?
Until you're found, well underground
Your marker, very small
As my world, it keeps on spinning round

Have to get away
Have to ease the pain
I embrace the morphine child
And pump it in my veins

Burning through my heart
Fills in every hole
Makes my mind so blissful numb
And replaces my soul

Every moment drags me further
Down down, down down, down down, down down

Got to get back to a reason
Got to get back to a reason, I once knew
And this late in the seasons
One by one, distractions fade from view

The only reason I have left is you
