Live in my head for just one day
I see myself and look away
The road is showing now on my face
Soon I'll disappear
I'll disappear without a fucking trace

[Chorus]

Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
I've lost too many friends along the way
Memories I never thought would fade
They fade and blow away

I wish that I could disappear
Unzip my skin and leave it here
So I could be no one again
And never let nobody,
I'd let nobody
I'd let nobody in

[Chorus]

So now the walls are closing in
Because in life you sink or swim
Sometimes these shoes don't feel right in my head
Feel like a book that can't be read,
A book that can't be,
A book that can't be read

[Chorus]

    he hates himself. and his reflection.
    he keeps loosing his friends.
    all his memories are fading away.
    he wishes he could disappear.
    nobody can understand him.
    he cant be understood.

    He is looking for a deeper meaning to life but it seems that everything he thought was real is fading away, friends, family and memories are now all bullshit so he has to be strong on his own cause no one can understand his pain.
